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" is his most complete work to date. The artist further ventures from "a guy and a guitar" to embrace his wide array of influences--from Bob Dylan to Stan Getz to Incubus--to create a uniquely alt-folk sound.
