About

If music is a window to the soul, then Charlie King’s music overlooks the ocean.  On a moonlit night in August.  With a cozy beverage.  And a best friend.  Some songwriters put excessive focus on “opening listeners’ eyes” to new perspectives, completely missing the exhaustion in those eyes from years of seeing too much.  Other songwriters take the opposite extreme, pushing their listeners to drown out or ignore all that’s been seen in exchange for a few moments of shallow peace.  Listening to Charlie’s music, however, has an entirely different feel to it.  It’s like an invitation home...or a slow exhale...or a friend you can be silent with.  Honest.  Authentic.  Satisfying.  As for the songs themselves, think sage wisdom wrapped in catchy melodies.  They’ve been crafted by an artist, with deep themes of meaning and love and truth becoming even more profound when mapped across futility, loss, and mystery.  Not to mention the innate sense of prosody; lyric dancing with melody like a pair of lovebirds.  It isn’t quite obvious which one follows the other, only that the match is almost always perfect.  And despite the creative complexities and enticing nuance woven throughout Charlie’s music, it always comes across as refreshingly easy.  The gift of this young man’s music to the world is only matched by the gift of Charlie King himself, and each is an absolute delight for the journey.

King was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2013, after graduating from the University of North Carolina and marrying his middle-school sweetheart, he made a soft first step into the world of music by releasing a homegrown EP, I Am Here, and spending a year playing some of Charlotte's favorite intimate venues. But 2015 brought the release of King's debut LP, Path of the Moon, along with three national tours. The trips spanned everywhere from NYC's Rockwood Music Hall to Austin, TX's Stubb's. From Lucy Lawless' odd-but-true Louisiana throwdown, to a beautiful Indiana opera house with Over the Rhine. Never knowing where he's headed but always glad to be there with some friends, King looks forward to writing, recording, and performing as long as life allows.
