Biography

Charlie Slick is more of an opinionated basement madman than your usual suspect who makes butt shakinÂ’ electro-pop.

Often outcast by both electronic outfits and the punk rock scene, Slick has worked tirelessly to develop a semi-cult following of teenage girls, DIY nerds, and stay-at-home moms, all of whom seem to relate to his quirky un-cool and yet showy approach to music and performance.

Besides keyboards, Slick and his female accomplices manipulate various effects and instruments that Slick often invents himself. He performs on the floor and engages the audience to dance with him, frequently shirtless, sweaty, and covered in glitter.

His newest album, his first release on vinyl, is entitled ELRON HUBBARD and deals with the age-old concept of hard work and the American Dream. Slick speaks of self worth, conspiracy, and even lifting from your job--and although it sounds serious, Slick keeps the mood light with his mostly tongue-in-cheek lyrics paired with bouncy electro bass lines.

Slick blends the charm and croon of Bowie with the dynamism and agility of Prince. He utilizes deft pop song craftsmanship and an outrageous live show--with genre-leaping appeal to engage open minded rockers and disco romantics alike.
