Charles Watson

Music / Indie, Singer-Songwriter / London, United Kingdom

During his first endeavours in lyrics and guitar for his first solo works, Charles Watson was intent on obscuring his voice through a bunch of effects, not wanting it to be the central piece of his music. Out of shyness at first, then out of habit, the Londoner had primarily focused on unusual voice sampling and reverb on his debut album "Now that I'm a River" (2018), on densely textured arrangements and the production process itself, which he had usually left to others during his previous projects Slow Club and The Surfing Magazines. His single “Afghan Hound” from last year has seen a change of priorities: authenticity, an intimacy with the listeners and the feelings it communicates have moved into the forefront. “It’s about having the self-esteem to just be myself, to approach things more directly and simply”, the singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist said. His new album “Yes” adheres to these principals and portrays Watson as a settled, distinct artist stepping out of his shadows to not only accept, but to celebrate his true self.
