Originally from the Bronx, Charlie started his musical career in the dives and bars of lower New York State. Cutting his eye-teeth fronting original bands like Dirty Moves and Cathouse Choir, Charlie soon found himself playing in venues like CBGB's in NYC and The Chance in Poughkeepsie.
He relocated Upstate in the 90's, first to Schenectady, then Saratoga Springs. Busking on the street corners led to the coffee houses,then the dives which led to the clubs and finally gigs opening for the likes of Tonic and Blue Oyster Cult
All the years of relentless gigging have nurtured a fierce sense of stage presence in him and an absolute love of singing and playing the guitar on stage.
