My name might be common but my style is alternative. I’m Charlie Smith a singer-songwriter from Hampshire, UK. My sound is chillingly sweet, raw, and emotive. In keeping my honest approach of recording with no unnecessary effects. Focusing on chords and melody above all else. I’m proud of my music not because it’s perfect but because it tells a story.
The Guillotine Union Boys
The wokeabilly band that neoliberal authoritarians love to hate. Join the Reverend Sam and Bo Gallows’ picket line as they bring their brand of home truth agit-folk to the masses. With lightning-quick finger-picking, stomping rhythms, and rallying rebel yells, this act is for the many, not the few.
