First Ethan Charles wrote and recorded his first EP For Reasons That Will Be Explained--a vulnerable reflection of his years in South Florida and NYC in the naked, sonic form of “one-guy-and-a-guitar.” 
 Then came the first album. As the title suggests, Less Bullshit, More Ethan Charles challenges the artist to explore his humorous and crooked sense of authenticity. Defined by his intricate bluesy, jazzy, folksy playing technique and poeticism, the tunes explore the artist's quenchless pursuit of love and an aimless affinity for good ol' fashioned sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. This sentiment is exemplified by a wholesome yet haunting finger-culled melody cradling “Highway Song”: "I try, I try/To make peace with danger/And dream of smaller mountains/To climb.” 
 His upcoming second album, "Ethan Charles Explores Your Mind," illustrates how the artist's sensitivities clash with his sardonicism, offering authentic perspective to a wayward musical landscape in an explosion of poetry and rhythm. Traditional Americana marries alternative, indie, and jazz influences as this artist explores his singular sound and our undivided minds. 
 Ethan Charles has opened sold out shows for Yael Naim as well as Rock n’ Roll icon Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü. He also joined City Winery’s Cellar Sessions alongside his idols G. Love & Special Sauce and Blues Hall of Famer John Hammond.
