FRESH: ‘Confidence’ – Boom Dice featuring Charlotte Hannah

Boom Dice teams with Charlotte Hannah with “Confidence”

Boom Dice wrote the beat that underpins “Confidence” in 2019, and was searching for over a year for the right type of voice to match its vibe, when he found the ‘crispy, pop shine’ of Charlotte Hannah through a recommendation. Charlotte fell instantly in love with the beat – envisioning the sounds of Vogue, London Music Scene and City Nights. To her, it felt new and revolutionary and inspired her to write “Confidence”.

Working remotely for the first time, Boom Dice kept in touch with Charlotte over video chat during the writing process to formulate the final version of “Confidence”. The track was recorded at Bryan’s studio in London. Charlotte hasn’t written a track like “Confidence” before, but wanted it to represent and include people of all genders, sexualities, race, body size and minorities, to empower & inspire a stronger sense of self assurance.

Boom Dice; AKA Bryan Wilson, is a Grammy-nominated Producer, Songwriter, Mixer & Artist. He has worked with globally acclaimed artists such as Sofi Tukker, Stormzy, Disclosure, John Newman, Wolf Alice, Lianne La Havas, Mabel and Jay Electronica w/ Jay-Z. Aside from his multi Grammy nominated work with Sofi Tukker, Boom Dice has been heavily involved with their new label ‘Animal Talk, as a writer, producer, and mixer – establishing himself as the go to ‘finisher’ at every stage of a project for artists like Boii and L.A based DJ LP Giobbi (front woman for the Femmehouse initiative, who champion women in the music industry).

22-year-old Charlotte Hannah is from Yorkshire, UK and has already worked with multiple big names including Tom Barker and Eliot Kennedy from the world-famous Steelworks Studios. Both a singer, songwriter and director, Charlotte is supported by BBC Introducing and has shared lineups with the likes of Gary Barlow, Fleur East, Ella Henderson & Jonas Blue. Her quaint countryside upbringing starkly opposes her stand-out, vibrant image – since she was little, Charlotte dreamt of being a singer and performing to people.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
