Charlie Weathers: Scatterbrained Songwriter and Blues Butcher with Eyes in the Sky and Heels in the Dirt...
Guitarist/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 recently released his first solo album MAYDAY recorded at Pebble Music in Berlin's historic Nalepastrasse Funkhaus with producer Chris Lastelle. In this chapter, Charlie is bringing a bigger guitar and classic American sound to the deck in a thrill ride of an album.
Charlie takes inspiration from classic overdriven and acoustic tones and unorthodox sound stories while holding true to blues legends and melodic word smiths, all creating intoxicating music that appeals to fans of any spectrum of Americana.
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 kept Charlie living out of a bag as a professional pilot, loving life in the friendly skies which fed his wanderlust and kept him playing and feeding his ever growing guitar and curiosity collections.
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 countless genres like a Pollock mural. Charlie currently plays with his power trio Boot Heel, smokey acoustic duo Bare Trees, Russian string band Sliver Plume, and solo shows.
