Biography

Charlie the Most was formed in the winter of 2011 by guitarist, songwriter, and arranger Charlie McCanless after being invited to play at the Berklee Performance Center. The group, featuring brothers Jared Howell (organ and piano) and Donovan Edelstein (drums), Nolan Watt (bass) and Jason Lim (guitar) clicked instantly and the warm reception of their debut made them realize this should not just be a one-off performance.
Soon after, the group added a horn section featuring Jacob Veloo (sax), Tom Molina (trumpet) and Daniel Luevano (trombone) as well as vocalists Jónas Björnsson and Diana Inez Cybulska. This greatly expanded Charlie The Most's musical palette as they began writing new material that explored the crossroads between blues, funk, and southern soul.
Since forming, Charlie The Most has played in every venue of note in the greater Boston area. The band is in the process of booking shows to and from SXSW as well as a european tour hitting many of the band member's homelands.

Lyrics

Had About Enough

Written By: Charlie McCanless

Written by: Charlie McCanless

Every day the times seem to change,
despite the miles the road stays the same.
I know what I know, and I've tried to let go
I just want some rest for my soul

Now, I can't wait

I know, what you said back when,
you were lonely, and you wanted to love again,
I tried to close my eyes, and believe all the lies,
but now, I've had about enough

Now when I find my piece of mind
down the road I'll go till I find you
to share all my thoughts on the the love that we've lost
I just want some rest for my soul

And now, I've had about enough

know, what you said back when,
you were lonely, and you wanted to love again,
I tried to close my eyes, and believe all the lies,
but now, I've had about enough

Tired of Being Tired

Written By: Charlie McCanless

TIRED OF BEING TIRED

I'm tired of being tired all the time
My doctor said exercise will help me rest my head
But I got my own medicine instead
A glass of wine will do me fine and I think ill get to bed

But I'm tired of being tired all the time

I got problems to spare
So many issues I wish I could share
The women the alcohol I can't recall them all
Just enough to keep me running scared

And I'm tired of being tired all the time

I wake up feeling dead
My eyes blood shot red
I'm running out of places to run

Although I know sleep won't come to me
I think I'll try and close my eyes
Hope to drift off into a dream
I'll keep on waiting for a break from reality

because I'm tired of being tired all the time
