Cobram singer/songwriter Charlotte Gemmill said she really enjoyed performing at Noble Monks in Shepparton on Saturday night and the Shepp Sounds winner was pleased that so many people came along to support her.

The concert featured short sets from each of the five artists — including Jorja Bromley, Kate Hall, Stevie Renee and the Young Ugees.

The SheppSounds compilation album was also released at the concert, at Noble Monks in Shepparton on Sunday.

Charlotte was backed by local band Mother Dearest, who were performing as house band on the day.

The SheppSounds 2012 compilation features Charlotte’s original song I Wish You Were Mine and an original song from each of the four artists as well as their group song, Speak Up.

All proceeds from SheppSounds 2012 door and CD sales went towards local charities and future youth music initiatives in regional Victoria.

Year 10 Goulburn Valley Grammar School student Charlotte said she enjoyed recording her single in Mooroopna and performing at Shepparton.

‘‘It’s been a great experience,’’ she said.

‘‘I feel like I’ve leaned a lot from the other artists too.’’

Charlotte enjoys playing mostly alternative and folk music.

‘‘I started singing publicly when I was around seven years old, and learned guitar at age 12 for three years,’’ she said.

Charlotte initially impressed judges at the audition with an original song Whole Only With You and Chasing Pavements by Adele.
