EXPERIENCE MATTERS

01. STUDIO SESSIONS

Charlie is now in his 44th year as a professional musician. The wealth of knowledge he has acquired during this time is extensive. There is basically very little that can happen in a studio session (or live show, for that matter) that can truly phase him. He has worked with every possible combination, from pure acoustic duo & trio work, to full-sized symphony orchestra, and everything in-between.

02. ONLINE SESSIONS

These days, clients contact Charlie from all over the world to record for them (mostly via email or phone calls). They send “stems” (basically a sub-mix of what they’ve done already), Charlie sets them up in a new sequence, records his drums to their tracks, and sends them back (using one of the many file-transfer systems available (yousendit.com, dropbox.com etc). There are no International boundaries anymore: we truly live in a Global Village. Inquire about online sessions with Charlie today.
