Charlotte Hatherley | Guitar Tutor | ICMP London

Charlotte Hatherley is a composer, solo artist, and guitarist who initially came to prominence as guitarist and backing vocalist for alternative rock band Ash.

After leaving Ash in 2006, she recorded and performed extensively with artists including Bryan Ferry, Bat For Lashes, KT Tunstall and Birdy. Most recently she has toured as Musical Director for critically acclaimed South African artist, Nakhane.

Her fourth solo album, True Love, was released in 2018. Inspired by her love of science fiction, the album tells the story of traveller, a heartbroken alien searching for love. 

With a focused drive to develop her craft beyond her artist and performing career, Charlotte collaborated with fellow sci-fi obsessive and acclaimed director and film designer Gavin Rothery, creating an ethereal soundscape for his short film The Last Man.

In 2019, she joined ICMP as a guitar tutor, bringing in her arrangement and performance expertise.

In early 2021, Charlotte announced that her guitar and bass feature on Imelda May's single 'Just One Kiss'. The record also includes features by Ronnie Wood, Noel Gallagher, and Alex Thomas. Charlotte commented on her Instagram page:

I found myself in a studio playing live bass with living legend Ronnie Wood and drummer extraordinaire Alex Thomas - a day to remember! Noel Gallagher sings on it too...!
