Bio

Charlie Braun is a singer, and a songwriter, but not your typical singer-songwriter. He's a versatile musician, singer, and producer playing original electric-folk, americana-rock, while keeping true to the grooves of blues, the determination of gospel, and the sensibility of lyrical folk music.

There were the years Braun shared the stage with numerous singers, including Carly Simon, James Taylor, Livingston Taylor, and John Hall (Orleans), and renowned musicians Mitch Chakour (Joe Cocker), his brother Mike Braun (Hall and Oates), and Robert Holmes (Aimee Mann).

Now, he's coming into his own. Rejuvenating his intention writing and performing original material, Braun is establishing as a solo artist, and attracting diverse audiences. His recordings are full and focused, and interwoven with tracks that he's recorded mostly himself. With a band-sound this live, he says: "People often ask me about the other musicians that are singing and playing on my songs: who are they and where do they come from? Well, they just seem to appear as I’m recording, but in truth, they’re all from the smokey basement studio of my imagination. Except for one or two tracks, I do all the vocals and instruments myself. Still, those characters are great to work with, and they usually have a pretty good sense of humor."

The past 8 months have been inspirational; Charlie Braun’s newest CD, “The Next Thing”, has just been released, after his 2006 album "Lift". The music is digging in and lighting up: alluring melodies, dynamic rhythms, sweet blues and soulful stories, all with a voice and a groove.
