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.
