NICK CHARLES – multi-award winning songwriter and performing artist. With dazzling melodic fingerpicking on six and twelve string guitars, stinging bottleneck slide and a lifetime's stories and songs gathered or written on the world's musical highways, it's no surprise that Nick Charles is labelled internationally as “Australia's virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”.
During his extensive and acclaimed career, Nick has released more than a dozen albums on major Australian and US roots music labels. His recordings have garnered world-wide recognition beginning with “My Place”, and now his most recent release “The River Flows” which received four and half stars in The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian newspapers, and reached number 2 on the Australian Public Radio Network.
Recognition of his international achievements has succeeded in having Nick signed to the Grammy Award winning label, Solid Air Records USA (“Home of the World's Finest Guitarists”). The only other Australian recognized by the label being Tommy Emmanuel.
Consistently averaging 150 shows a year in Australia, New Zealand and the USA, his music encompasses a delightful and eclectic mix of acoustic roots including blues, folk and early ragtime jazz. Along the way there are stylish nods to the Great American Songbook and the finest contemporary players and composers from Chet Atkins to Lennon and McCartney to Leo Kottke.
