Charlie is no stranger to the plight of NIVA and the Save our Stages movement. He has toured the world relentlessly as a musician and also served as a booking agent for Artists in hundreds of the venues now at risk. This cause hit home hardest in a year packed full of Pandemic related charities in need. The single is a sobering call to arms for all the working musicians affected by the worldwide lockdown. Not to mention the fans that are missing out on seeing live music & theatre productions for the past 7months and the unforeseeable future to come. Charlie recalls, “One year ago, I had gone to see John Prine at a benefit show for The Americana Music foundation. Jimmy Vivino was the Musical director of the evening. The whole night was incredible but, John’s performance touched me on levels as a writer and honestly just as a human being that I had never experienced before.

Flash forward to Spring 2020, Covid was hitting hard, thats when the song came to me."
