Charlie Collins on “Please Let Me Go:”

“Please Let Me Go” is a personal account of self-reflection and a sense of hopelessness during a difficult period in her life. “This is somewhat of a self-pity song,” she says. “I was feeling sorry for myself when I wrote this, as I just felt like I couldn’t win in a sense. I felt tired and didn’t feel like I had the strength to keep going, constantly comparing myself to others around me and feeling like somewhere along the lines, I had failed.”

Collins’ primary influences are perfectly versatile. She picked up a guitar at age 11 and learned to busk old country classics from the likes of Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Emmy Lou Harris. The sounds of dirt roads and dive bars lay a gravelly foundation over which her sheepskin-soft voice could ring. Charlie took to more modern sounds in her early twenties, fronting alt-pop outfit Tigertown. Now, she melds the range of experiences into something both grittily heartfelt.

This fall, Charlie will support Kasey Chambers on her 20th Anniversary tour of The Captain, launching September 12 in Melbourne. The tour marks an important milestone in Collins’ career, as Kasey Chambers was a strong influence in Collins’ decision to pursue music.
