Introducing piglet: the emotive solo project of Irish songwriter and producer Charlie Loane. Born and raised in Belfast, Loane now calls South London home, where he creates music that speaks to the heart.
His latest EP, a collection of seven powerful tracks, explores themes of mental health, substance abuse, self-identity, trans experience, and friendship. The EP includes re-recordings of previously released solo singles ‘mill,’ ‘dans note,’ and ‘oan,’ which led to a deal with London label Blue Flowers (Puma Blue, Nilüfer Yanya, Westerman) in early 2022.
These tracks were captured in a live session by NTS Radio, featuring piglet’s expanded 9-piece band, which includes members of Goat Girl and caroline.
In February 2020, piglet released his first EP, ‘alex’s birthday,’ on South London DIY label Double Dare. The warm and introspective songs reflect Loane’s experiences as a queer and trans individual, with a focus on personal growth and self-discovery.
In 2021, piglet collaborated with friends Porridge Radio on two tracks released through the Secretly Canadian label, showcasing Loane’s ability to connect with fellow artists and create something truly special.
