Charlie Weathers

Charlie Weathers: Scatterbrained Songwriter and Blues Butcher with Eyes in the Sky and Heels in the Dirt...

Signing pilot Charlie Weathers travels the globe with his flying guitar, keeping his head in the clouds with electrifying Gibson guitar riffs, and his butt on the ground with blues saturated American rock.
Charlie takes inspiration from 70s/80s riff-based power shreds and the unorthodox sound stories of Tom Waits while holding true to southern rock favorites like Billy Gibbons http://www.billygibbons.com / ZZ Top http://www.zztop.com and Gov’t Mule http://www.mule.net to make exciting music that appeals to fans of any spectrum of American rock.
Growing up in St.Louis during the musically deprived 80's sneaking into the riverfront blues bars in St. Louis and camping out for the likes of Yes http://www.yesworld.com, Rush http://www.rush.com, Van Halen http://www.vhnd.com and Guns 'n Roses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guns_N'_Roses, Charlie picked up the guitar to swing into the world that was blowing his mind. Moving on to Tulsa, OK, the world changed to more southern country rock and jam bands and the roots sunk deeper. The ten years after Tulsa kept C. living and loving life on the road out of a bag which fed the wanderlust and kept him playing open sessions wherever his hat hung.
More recent times have slowed him down to an orbit between Berlin and Moscow. Both vibrant eclectic and aggressive cities, these eastern block capitols are blending Americana and countless genres like a Pollock mural.
Charlie’s first CD “Salvage” with the band Bootheel 13, released on the Berlin label Cannery Row Records http://www.canneryrowrecords.com is available on CD Babyhttp://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bootheel1. 
Charlie is currently working on his first solo album with producer Chris Lastelle at Pebble Music http://www.pebblemusic.com in Berlin. In this next album Charlie is bringing a bigger guitar and classic American sound to the deck in what is promising to be a thrill ride of an album!
Here is a sneak preview of Charlie in the studio!

Charlie Weathers:

Songwriter/Pilot Charlie Weathers travels the globe with his guitar, keeping his head in the clouds with etherial songs and riffs and his butt on the ground with blues saturated Americana. All coming together in a musical patchwork of travel, love and retribution.

Charlie digitally released his first solo album MAYDAY on May 1 and will follow with a CD release in September.  MAYDAY is bringing a bigger sound to the deck in what is promising to be a thrill ride for Americana holdouts in Europe and Russia and an overdriven train wreck back in the USA.

Charlie takes inspiration from overdrive tones and unorthodox sound stories. Holding true to heros like Billy Gibbons and Warren Haynes, and melodic word smiths Tom WaitsNeil Young and Eddie Vedder, creating intoxicating music that appeals to fans of any spectrum.

Growing up in St.Louis during the 80's, Charlie would be found sneaking into the riverfront blues bars and camping out for big arena shows. It was first love when Charlie picked up the guitar to swing into the world that was blowing his mind. Moving on to Tulsa, OK, the world changed to more southern country rock and jam bands and the roots sunk deeper. The ten years after Tulsa kept Charlie living out of a bag as a professional pilot, loving life in the friendly skíes which fed his wanderlust and kept him playing open sessions and feeding his ever growing guitar and amplifier collection.

More recent times have slowed him down to an orbit between Berlin and Moscow, where he plays with power trio Boot Heel, melodic string band Silver Plume, smokey acoustic duo Bare Trees, and solo shows. Both cities being vibrant, eclectic and aggressive, these eastern block capitols are blending Americana and countless genres like a Pollock mural.

Charlie’s first CD “Salvage” with the band Boot Heel, released on the Berlin label Cannery Row Records is available on CD Baby
