Artist Profile – Charlie A’Court (Canada)

Your Name: Charlie A’Court

Who do you sound like?
My sounds are influenced between a mix of Otis Redding and Jonny Lang with a healthy dose of Clapton.

Have you played at The Brass Monkey, if so, what’s is your favourite dish on the menu?
Any pizza with lamb on it is completely out of this world. I’ve never once had a bad meal there

My favourite Cocktail / Drink:
Gin and tonic

My favourite Artist:
Jonny Lang, Martin Sexton, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Tina Turner. How could you possibly name just one?

The First Record I Bought:
Randy Travis: Digging Up Bones. I was starting to get into rap and my mother, in her parental wisdom, thought I should be listening to country music instead. While I never truly got into country music, it did help me develop a taste for listening to other styles to see what I liked and didn’t like.

The Record That Changed My Life:
Eric Clapton: Unplugged. I was starting out as a classical guitarist when I heard this album and completely changed my trajectory as an artist. Hearing those songs changed a notion in my mind about how music can impact you.
