Messages of love have been posted online after the death of a well-loved Glasgow singer at her home in the southside. 

Charly Houston, 24, was found dead at her home last Thursday in Newlands. 

Charly was a regular on Glasgow's music scene, with performances dedicated to her put on at the Butterfly and the Pig South in Shawlands on Tuesday evening. 

The winner of the 2016 Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award, the talented singer had played across the world, gracing crowds as far afield as New York, taking to the stage at the Rockwood Music Hall.

Friends and loved ones have taken to social media to share their grief at the loss of Charly. 

Friend Caitlin McKenna said: "Its been a tough few days and in light of recent events, I've decided I'm gonna be out n about playing gigs again (not straight away).

"On Friday I got an awful phone call to tell me I'd lost one of my most talented, hilarious and loving best friends.

"She was an absolute wee ray of sunshine and she's the person who got me out and so involved in the scene all those years ago, introducing me to some amazing people that I now consider family.

"I want to share her music with everyone as it needs to be heard, so I'm going to be returning and dedicating my sets to Charlys songs.

"I used to frequently play her music during my gigs and we played together almost every week. She loved it (hopefully she wasn't lying and really hated it), so I feel this is something I need to do for her and our musical family.

"I'm going to miss her daft wee giggling face so much and My thoughts are with her family. 

"Talk to those close to you. Check in. Make sure they're doing alright even when they seem completely fine, because reaching out for help can be scary and it's important to know you have friends and family who will always support and love you.

"I love you Charly xxx."

Fellow musician Laurence Made Me Cry posted: "Glasgow, like this photo, is empty without you, Charly."

Charlene McElhinney said: "Beautiful soul, singer and smiler. Rest easy, Charly Houston, you were just too good for this world."

But it was in Glasgow where her impact was felt strongest, with performances across the city, as well as her work tackling anti-LGBT prejudice. 

As part of this work to promote LGBT musicians, Charly started a Gay As Folk gig night in Broadcast in 2015. 

Speaking four years ago, Charly said: "We don't have a lot of women in the Glasgow music scene, it's still a male dominated industry but I want that to change.

"I want women to stand together and show what they can do without being afraid."

Charly, who’s first name was Charlotte, died on January 3, with the cause of death not yet know. 

Police, however, are not treating the death as suspicious.
