After releasing a strong collaborative sophomore album under the name 'Rat Habitat' with guitarist Jordan Peters (Lauryn Hill), Charles, under the moniker D’flower, now embarks on a solo experience using Roland SPs, loop pedals, and the flute to create a Chaka Khan meets Badu-esque "sonic collage" fusing RnB, jazz, samples and Haitian folk songs. Her Debut self-produced project “Girl with the Green Shoes” has received nods from notable artists such as Saul Williams and MNDSGN (stones throw). The Village Voice has described D’flowers “Girl With The Green Shoes” as “Collaging her musical DNA into jazz-studded multi-instrumentalism and dipping a toe into the experimental [...] There’s an uncanny cohesion to Charles’ music, her wandering threads braided into something strong as rope.”
