Charlie Greene's New Eponymous Album, Out 2/25 via Artist Tribe Recordings
Born the son of a touring singer/songwriter and recording artist, the grandson of a big band leader from the 40's and 50's, and the great-grandson of a front-porch, Georgia banjo player, music is in Charlie Greene's blood.
On the heels of Charlie Greene's 2012 album debut Wildfire Music comes Charlie Greene(out 2/25 via Artist Tribe Recordings), a new collection of songs that captures the attention of a discerning audience. The album is currently streaming in full via Elmore Magazine, listen and share it HERE.
As a boy growing up in Atlanta and Los Angeles, Charlie was greatly influenced by the lives of the musicians in his family as well as their interpretation of original American music. He keeps this generational bond alive by performing in and around Los Angeles backed by his father and younger brother.
Proficient on guitar and piano, Charlie is a singer/songwriter whose writing and musical influences are as diverse as his songs. From Harry Nilsson, Merle Haggard, Ornette Coleman and Burl Ives to Chopin's Nocturnes and Charles Bukowski, his style is a unique blend that defies categorization yet commands attention with a disarming show of lyrical firepower.
The late, legendary producer Phil Ramone commented after seeing Charlie perform for the first time, "Charlie Greene is truly a joy to watch perform, and his compositions apply a keen sense of musicality, humor, discovery, intellect and a distinctive lyrical point of view that is rare these days. His will be a career that will be fun to watch unfold."
LA fans will soon have three opportunities to see Charlie perform at the Piano Bar, head below to check out the dates and RSVP via email.
