CHARLIE EDWARD RELEASES HIS NEW SINGLE/VIDEO“BROKEN SIDE”WATCH!!!
Charlie Edward is a 21-year-old young gun and ROCK n ROLL was what this kid was born to do and his debut release “Broken Side” unequivocally shows he is a master at his craft.After some time in LA working with Foreigners’ Jeff Pilson, Edward came to Toronto to write with Leon Harrison (founder of Bandwagon and singer of The Lazys). He soon became a name that many wanted to work with. So far he has worked with Garth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine), and Colin MacDonald (The Trews). This debut release “Broken Side” marks Edward’s beginning of a very promising solo career. Usually seen on the sidelines playing lead guitar for other acts or writing music in private, Edward decided to take a risk and put it all out there after some encouragement from fellow musicians in California. He may be small, but this kid will SET YOU STRAIGHT with his wide vocal range and monster guitar tones.
“BROKEN SIDE”“Broken Side” is about a loss of love, and not wanting to dwell on that or waste any time being sad. Being ready to let go.” – Charlie Edward
Edward reflects on his own process so far, “A sense of creative freedom and evolution is at the forefront of my psyche – to be able to utilize my voice, my guitar playing, and my songwriting skills – all in harmony with one another is really refreshing. It’s the culmination of two years spent with great writers, musicians, and friends. Always traveling, making music, and picking up whatever I can along the way.”– Charlie EdwardSong Credits:Mixing Engineer- Ben EriksonProducer-Colin MacDonald Writer(s)-Charlie Edward, Colin MacDonald, Leon Harrison, Brandon GregoryStudio assistants- Darren Mcgill, Davey WhiteDrum tech- Jordan at YC Drum CompanyVideo Credits:Scott Baker-Music Video DirectorBrian Hamilton- Music video Director/ProducerJeff Elliston-Music Video B cameraNatalie Schiabel- Music Video Actress
