Michael Charles


You can count his 24 recording releases, four Grammy nods or countless performances since starting guitar at age five, but it all adds up to a great career of fantastic music for Australian bluesman Michael Charles. Twenty years ago Buddy Guy invited the Aussie to the U.S. to play at his Legends bar in Chicago and the stellar guitarist stayed to play the blues in America. Currently on his Another Time Another Place 2010 Tour, Charles heads through the Midwest playing all the top blues joints in support of his latest release Connected, a collaboration with Magistry, a hip-hop artist from Chicago. He rocks the house with original blues songs, favorite covers and a sprinkling of the new stuff in the set list all laced with fiery Stratocaster work on top of a heavy, rockin’ blues sound.
