Das Konzert war mal wieder unglaublich gut und schön. Charlie Winston ist für das Publikum greifbar, macht eine gute Show und sucht den Kontakt zum Publikum. Mitten und nach dem Konzert. Der Künstler macht sich mit seiner Bodenständigkeit, seiner Performance, seiner menschlichen Seite und am Ende als Sänger unglaublich sympathisch. Das neue Album bringt viele schöne Songs hervor, genauso wie aus seinen vergangenen Alben. Diese summt, trällert, singt und pfeift man gerne auf dem Konzert mit breiten Masse mit. Durch seine lockere und fröhliche Art, hat er gleich das ganze Publikum auf seiner Seite und es entsteht eine super schöne, angenehme und lockere Stimmung. Das war jetzt mein zweites Konzert innerhalb der letzten Jahre von Charlie Winston und wenn Charlie mitspielt, wird dies auch nicht mein letztes Konzert bei diesem Interpreten gewesen sein. Ein Garant für einen unterhaltsamen und schönen Abend.

About Charlie Winston

Charlie Winston grew up, with his folk-musician parents and his musical siblings, in a Suffolk hotel through which passed an endless procession of itinerant artists, orchestras, actors and thespians. Such an environment had a great impact on Charlie giving him a deep love for the performing arts and entertainment whilst nurturing his musical talents. At the age of eight he learned to play the drums, before turning his hand to the piano when he was ten and two years later writing his first songs. Aged seventeen Charlie relocated to London, studied music at Brunel (“I later realised that I got too caught up in the 'technicalities' of music, I had become engrossed in the world of Jazz and Minimalism”), subsequently leaving college penniless and piano-less. Living in Clapham with his brother (Tom Baxter) the only instrument he played was a beaten up bass found “just lying around”. So with Charlie now playing bass they formed the band 'Baxter', a period that lasted three years and that Charlie regards as his degree course - An Introduction To The Real World Of Music. Charlie’s musical development continued - writing music for theatre productions (The Almeida, Sadler’s Wells, The Gate, The Unicorn and others) and writing and playing music for short films, dance productions, TV adverts as well as producing and recording records with various artists. “This was a fantastic training ground for me. I learned to write to a brief with a deadline. This became an invaluable discipline, and a very important part of my 'process'. A little pressure can produce a lot.” Singing or playing with many different bands on either bass, piano or percussion, Charlie wrote and arranged music for brass and strings including the London Symphonietta and the BBC Concert Orchestra and came to the fore of the stage as lead singer in an eight piece reggae band “it brought out my strength as a front man”. In his early twenties he picked up the guitar for the first time “it helped me focus on the beauty and simplicity of songwriting and storytelling once again - the precise things that had drawn me into writing in the first place when I was in my teens.” In 2003, when Charlie was recording bass for his brother Tom’s album at Real World Studios, he was introduced to Peter Gabriel and became friends with Peter’s daughter Mel. “Although I had a new EP that I was anxious to give him, I decided to wait until he knew me as a person first, before introducing him to my music. It turned out to be the right choice.” A year later, when he was babysitting for Peter’s son, Charlie finally gave him his EP – in return Peter gave him a recording contract, produced his first album ‘Make Way’ and invited Charlie to open for him on his European tour. A Volkswagen television advert, in which Charlie was the voice of a dog who unleashed a mightily impressive rendition of the classic Spencer Davis Group song 'I'm a Man', became a global smash and is also now a YouTube classic. Charlie’s story then moved to France where he had come to the attention of record label Atmosphériques who introduced him to Mark Plati (David Bowie, The Cure, Louise Attaque) with whom Charlie recorded his second album ‘Hobo’. The "Hobo" sessions took place primarily in Paris, at the Pigalle Studios, with brass and strings added in London and the finishing touches added at Plati’s New York studio. The core of the record sees Charlie on guitar, piano, and "vintage" keys (Wurlitzer-Celest-Hammond), Ben Edwards on his harmonicas, Daniel Marsala on the bass and Medi on the drums. The resulting album is a collection of songs with soul inspired by the great ‘soul men’ - Ray Charles, Randy Newman, Richie Havens, Tom Waits. Thoughtful and captivating and musically witty the stories are at times serious, at others ironic but always profoundly human. ‘Hobo’ was released in France in January 2009. The single ‘Like A Hobo’ shot to number one in the iTunes chart within forty eight hours; the album followed suit within a week. ‘Like A Hobo was number one on all download charts for four weeks, a feat only ever achieved by four other artists. Certified platinum, the album CD has now been in the top ten of the physical charts since its launch in January and the single topped the French CD charts on its release. Featured in all the main French press, Charlie has performed on the influential TV show Taratata an unprecedented three times and on Le Grand Journal in both Paris and at the show’s Cannes Film Festival opener. He is currently on an extensive sold out headline tour of France and has been invited to play at all the major summer festivals in France, Belgium and Switzerland. On stage Charlie the “song-singer” becomes Charlie the entertainer, one steeped in music, dance and theatre who puts on quite a show - “Because I am a songwriter with an album called ‘Hobo’ it can easily be misconstrued that I’ll just be on stage with a guitar or a harmonica. But I’m a performer and an entertainer and my experience with theatre and dance means that it’s more about being an artist than just a songwriter.” The hobo will now return to Britain where Charlie is performing at festivals during the summer. ‘In Your Hands’ will be released on vinyl and download on July 27; the album ‘Hobo’ and the single ‘Like A Hobo’ will be released in September. Life can be polar, bear that in mind. https://www.twitter.com/charlie_winston https://instagram.com/charliewinston
