With relatable lyrics like every time I think I’ve made up my mind, you do something new, when I spend the whole day wondering if you’re ever gonna call, you never do, but as soon as I decide that I’m walking away, then I hear from you, “You Got My Heart” is sure to be popular amongst playlists.

You Got My Heart is a sunshine-pop take on the struggles of long distance relationships,” Charlotte explains. “This isn’t your typical summer song about falling in love, but it has the upbeat, bop-along groove while expressing something that can be difficult to face. Instead of wallowing in a sad ballad, this became my pump up jam as I figured out where to go next. You Got My Heart is a great song for summer, windows-down road trips, and any one looking to find the silver lining in a less-than-ideal situation.”

Reigning from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Charlotte Morris is a New York based singer-songwriter whose music showcases a unique blend of folk, pop and rock music. From her lilting folk ballads to her rock anthems for a new generation, Charlotte displays a wide aptitude for various styles.
