Here at Cause A Scene we always jump at the opportunity to spotlight local artists and we love to keep tabs on past CAS performers, and Nashville-based folk pop outfit Charlie and the Foxtrots falls into both of those categories. Having played a CAS show this past October with fellow Nashvillians, Smooth Hound Smith, Charlie and the Foxtrots have been a talent we have been keeping a close eye on.
In early 2013, lead vocalist Chas Wilson began assembling The Foxtrots, forming a seven piece band, drawing their sound from classic folk and bluegrass influences, fusing it all together with modern pop. In only a few months time, Charlie and the Foxtrots recorded and released their first EP, and they have not slowed their rapid pace in the time since.
Currently on the final leg of a regional east coast tour, the band has also spent the last several months in and out of the studio, recording their followup EP, which is due to release this spring. The video for the first single, “The Man I Am,” from their forthcoming EP released just last week on AmericanSongwriter.com. Watch the video for “The Man I Am” below and keep up with Charlie and the Foxtrots at the band’s website for the official release date of their sophomore EP.
