Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA

Honest songwriting and melodies. Dynamic instrumentation. Alternative rock at its finest, from true Minnesotans.


After playing with several acts and touring out of Nashville TN for two years, the Brothers Hicks and Levi Stugelmeyer returned to their home state of Minnesota.

It was good to be back. A house was procured in Saint Paul, A studio was setup, and some good songs started forming out of one of the coldest winters they had ever seen.

Good friend Steve Bosmans was unhappy with his situation in Rabbi school, and decided to drop out to play guitar in the working project "CHARN." Not long after Bosmans joined the group, shows were falling in line, and spirits were high.

The Brothers Hicks, Levi Stugelmeyer and Steven Bosmans were having fun surprising people, and themselves… With a dynamic and brutally honest alternative rock show.

In March of 2008 CHARN recorded their debut record "These Sins of Mine."
Released in early 2009, the record has received many positive reviews and critical acclaim. These songs live and breathe a cold and dark Minnesota winter. The band has been very pleased with the outcome of the record, and are compiling new material every day for their sophomore release.


CHARNs foundation is family and friendship.

Currently CHARN is completing their sophomore release "Thick as Thieves"


Debut LP "These Sins of Mine" is available on iTunes, CD baby, and is streaming online.
