The Aldrich sisters

Charlotte Aldrich attended Garden House School, 2002 – 2009

Charlotte is a newly-discovered singer songwriter who recorded her first single ‘Alive’ in March 2021 at Rainbow Wood Studios. Multi-talented Charlotte designed the cover for her single herself. The melody, lyrics and voice are all Charlotte.  Charlotte has taken the name Alicia Mei for her singing and song-writing career, adopting her middle name Mei as part of her ‘nom de plume’.  

Charlotte works for Solar Media, an international media company as a marketing manager.  Not content to be working on her musical career and concentrating on her full-time job, Charlotte gives her time to a community organisation tackling rape culture called Everyone’s Invited.  Charlotte is Head of Marketing there and has designed their website.  This shows an admirable social conscience.   In addition,Charlotte works for Hall and Hall, an events company, in a freelance capacity.  

We believe Charlotte is on the cusp of a high-profile music career and look forward to the launch of her first album.  Watch this space.  Both sisters are remembered with great affection by their Garden House School teachers.   Charlotte followed in her older sister Tiffany’s footsteps to Garden House School and thereafter to Downe House School.  Both schools recognised Charlotte’s musical talent.
