Shatter Like Glass

Performed by Angels With Dirty Faces


Co-Written by Charlotte Board and Stuart Landon

by Helen C Pocock

Shatter Like Glass is the first single to be released from Survivor, an album coming to us by Charlotte Board. Charlotte is well known within the UK Country Music scene, but more for her work behind the scenes with bands like the Ash Cooper Band. She has however been busy writing her own songs and with the help of Matthew Bishop (music producer and one third of the band Honey Ryder) Survivor has taken shape and gathered form. The album will feature many well-known UKCM artists.

Released on Friday 14th October, Shatter Like Glass debuted at No 4 on the UK iTunes Country Chart, held back from the number 3 spot by Forever Country, the CMA Anniversary song. (The Shires were no 2 with My Universe & No 1 was Dolly Parton’s Jolene – are people seriously still buying that single? After all these years? Wow!)

Stuart Landon from Angels With Dirty Faces, has quite a raw sounding voice, which lends itself really well to this song. It is a slow track with both powerful words and theme, I find it quite poignant that it is sung by a man, it is the sort of track you would normally associate with a female singing. The song itself is about heartbreak, picking yourself up, turning your back and walking away, but with dignity & hope in your heart. If you haven’t experienced this sort of feeling at least once in your life, then you must be very young or lucky enough to have got this far without having your heart broken!

This single is a very promising insight to Survivor and it certainly leaves me wanting to hear more from the album.

The single is available from iTunes for £0.79

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
