Charlie cut his teeth in the London music scene at an early age; moving to the capital at 18 and playing in various touring bands. In 2005, he had the opportunity to join UK indie band, The Wedding Present, as their drummer, and since then he’s been a part of the group’s set-up; racking up hundreds of live shows, and TV and radio appearances with them all over the world.
In the London of the early ‘noughties’, Charlie worked in various roles for The Big Chill Festival over a period of eight years – from administration to marketing to programming a 3,000 capacity stage. Since leaving in 2009 to concentrate full-time on music, Charlie has been working as a Tour Manager with bands and artists including The Heavy, Klee and Lily & Madeleine, to name just a few. Once a week, Charlie steps behind the microphone and co-hosts ‘Off The Record’; a two-hour long English language programme for Berlin-based FM and online radio station, Flux FM.
