The 4 strands of Charlie’s Music World
each one steeped in expressive melodies, soulful grooves, and fresh energy.
Guitarist, Record Producer, Singer-songwriter, and Teacher: Charlie’s music- Folk, Rock, and Rhythm- is "...funky and honest and musical." (Carly Simon)
Charlie's Guitar Playing is a creative outpouring of harmonic and reflective melodies, and funky, organic rhythms. Hear him live (see Calendar page), or find his recorded music on CD (Store page)
As Producer/Arranger in his Recording Studio, Other Side Of The Tracks Studio, he has a remarkable ability to see into the heart of a song and how to serve it. “He’s a kind of Song-Whisperer, intuitively knowing how a song should be approached and cared for." (Harry Becker- Songwriter). Check out the Recording Studio Page for more info, and a list of CDs and other interesting projects recorded here.
A Singer-Songwriter of versatile styles, his music has been called "spiritually alive, and musical right down to the bone...warm, soulful, spontaneous, and full of joy." (Ned Claflin- Songwriter & Savant) and "current, fresh, and 'organic' (Frank Stopak, songwriter). His CDs are on the Store page. Collaborations with other wonderful musicians can be found here.
“Share what you know” is Charlie’s credo in Teaching Guitar and Singing. His approach to both is giving students the most basic and useful techniques to help them deliver their music with soul, groove, harmony, and joy. With his concept, “Sing With Soul”, he works with individuals and groups to develop personal and professional musical intentions. Read more on the About Charlie page.
Among many other styles, he has written music for, produced, played music with, and collaborated with Indie Folk-Rockers, Children's Songs Writers, Yoga Instructors, Kirtan/Sacred Music Chanters, Country Music Singers, Shamans, and Tween Pop-Rockers. For Charlie, it's a continuous creation of Music, Rhythm, and the Space Between.
