Her debut album, True Romance, was released in April of 2013. Charli’s career began at the age of 14. During the day she’d be at school and afterwards she’d write songs and produce raw demos in the bedroom of her parents’ house. By night, she’d be in London, UK in a “colourful, glittery world that didn’t really mean that much, but never claimed to either”. In 2006, when Charli was 14 she organised her live performances through MySpace and regaled crowds with "nursery rhyme-esque rap pieces with me shouting ‘DINOSAUR SEX!’ while standing on a crate in a warehouse".
