Hey there guys DJ Dizzy here & this is my interview with Charles Boulevard as he shared his musical origins. Enjoy!
from Charles Boulevard
How'd you get started in music?
I always wanted to be a musician. Guitarist and
singer. It was only natural to write music, put the band together, play live.
Who are your inspirations or influences?
We were all big fans of the Beatles as kids, but there
has been so much great music since the 60’s. Everything from Country to Metal has
left some impression.. When I started my first band, I wanted to be a great
guitar player and play some heavy, angry stuff. These days I am much more into
song writing and coming up with thoughtful, colorful music. We like Tom Petty,
Bruce Springsteen, The Kinks, Counting Crows – these are probably those we all
What advice would offer aspiring performers?
Enjoy the music, because that is all that counts. Take
your own way. There is a lot of advice out there about how to become a better
player, better composer or whatever, but music should be fun, it should come
naturally. Enjoy the groove and find your inspiration!
How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or
We don’t think about it this way. We are just
ourselves. We love those colorful guitar sounds and the combination of American
and British grooves. It's exciting to absorb those influences, and interpret them to create your own sound.
new gigs or albums in the future?
just released our first album called Rendez-Vous! which has 18 songs.. There
are no gigs planned because of the pandemic situation, but we can be seen on
SessionsLive.com pretty often. But of course, we are working on new material
for our next album. We love songwriting, creating something new is always
exciting! Our next album should see release early next year.
Charles Boulevard: Rendez-Vous!
Special thanks to him for doing this interview & I wish him lots of luck in his music. So until then I'll catch you on The Flipside!
