Hi there, my name is Charlie!
I have been playing Bass for well over a decade now, and I am an experienced sight/chart reader.
I studied at BassTech in West London, and went on to play in very successful bands, gathering endorsements from 'Elixir Strings', 'Kramer Guitars', 'AMPEG Bass amps' and 'Overwater Basses'. I work closely with Chris May from Overwater, and it is a fantastic relationship.
I have recently had contracts on a lot of cruise ships around the EU.
I have been in a variety of Function bands, in which I have played everything from huge weddings to big Business Corporate events. With a set list in excess of 300 songs from early Motown to the latest top 40.
I have toured the UK, Europe, North and South America. Within those area's I have played SXSW (USA), Indie Week (Toronto), Bestival (UK), Download Festival (UK), Brownstock (UK). All of the major O2 Academy's nationwide, along with every venue in London.
I love travelling and playing in any environment, working writing and playing with people is what keeps me alive.
Here are some videos of me playing:
