      Harmonic & love in a cuddle. Loved the music & the performance, few wee technical issue, sorted volume with output to an amp. Would be nice to see the band sett-ing just before the gig starts just so you know we're nearly. Looking forward to the next show, and interested in some way of seeing what other bands your doing, where, get a flavour for a few to follow. It the future of 'open-mic' 'feeder-bar' gigs to build full live shows. Gets a lot of interests from outside the region. I'm in Scotland watching LA, and loving it.

Originally from The Outer Hebrides of Scotland, Charlie Clark is now based in Los Angeles, California. Clark was a founding member of the criminally overlooked band Astrid, who released three full-length records, including 1999′s sophomore lp, Strange Weather Lately, which was produced by legendary musician, Edwyn Collins. Clark was also a core member of the Scottish “supergroup”, The Reindeer Section, which featured members of Snow Patrol, Belle & Sebastian, Teenage Fanclub and The Vaselines. Clark has also appeared as a guest vocalist and musician on records by The Zephyrs, Arab Strap, Mogwai and Snow Patrol.

For his debut solo record, Charlie Clark has hooked back up with Edwyn Collins, whose AED label who released the Feel Something ep on July 22nd 2013. The five song record features the talents of Brandi Emma, Eric McCann (who also produced the record), Isobel Campbell, Yohei Shikano (My Hawaii), Kaitlin Wolfberg (Fort King) and Joe Luisi (A House For Lions). Feel Something shows off Clark’s keen ability to write a smart pop song, but the Scottish songwriter has been absorbing the sunshine and laid-back vibes of his adopted home.

"A hybrid of Damien Rice and The Decemberists, Clark explores themes of love and drink through dark metaphors. With Clark, the macabre is beautiful." Marni Epstein_The Eastsider LA

"Five songs with a heart of gold." Kevin Bronson_Buzz Bands LA

"The EP is one that the listener can tell comes straight from the heart. It’s lyrically smart, with five tracks that dance on the border of being pop songs but with no forced-catchy element, just swoon-worthy melodies." Laura Gesualdi_In Your Speakers

"His recordings are full of beautiful, haunted melodies and stripped down plaintive acoustic beauty. Feel Something follows the themes that have dominated his musical journey so far but with the added sunshine and smog of LA mixed into his muse." John Robb_Louder Than War
