Biography

Several artists use this name:

1) American singer Charlene (Oliver, née D’Angelo) - best known for her 1976 sleeper hit single, I’ve Never Been to Me, which reached #97 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. In 1982, renewed interest in the song led to the single reaching #3 in the USA and #1 in the UK. The song also reached #1 in Australia in 1983 for six weeks.

2) Charlene (also Charlene Meulenberg) is an artist from the Netherlands who finished third in Season 4 (2008) of the Dutch Idols singing competition, but who was favored by many fans and the musical team behind Wouter Hamel and Giovanca (Dox Records), whom she signed with after the competition. She has already released her debut album, Charlene, with the label.

3) Charlene is the name used by an // group from Newton, Massachusetts which released its self-titled debut album, Charlene in 2002. Their most recent release was the single, Oh Hey (2008).

Charlene is an indie rock band that originated in Allston, Massachusetts in the latter half of the 1990s. The group has released three seven inch singles, an eponymous debut album and, most recently, a digital-only single. The band’s esthetic sense has been likened to the shoegazing scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s with favorably drawn comparisons to Slowdive, Spiritualized, and Ride as well as post-punk touchstones like New Order and the Jesus and Mary Chain.

    Legendary song "I've never been to me" will forever engrave Charlene in the minds of men that grew up in ages where 'living for pleasure' was still avant garde.

    Shoegaze Charlene is excellent, but did they have to self-title their album?
