After moving to Orlando, Florida in 2000, Charlie invested in equipment and set up a small, State-of-the-Art, Hard Disk based tracking room at home to record drum tracks for clients. He continued to upgrade the studio named Manicdrums Productions, and record sessions for a number of clients, including Michelle Tumes (songwriting demos), Tom Paul, Beth Schafer and Jim Wilson’s 3rd album “Sanctuary”. In 2001, Charlie recorded the Voices of America CD (post-September 11, for the families of those lost in NYC and DC), using this facility, as well as “Cool Breeze” by Plan9 (which had a successful summer hit on the Adult Contemporary charts), Cyd Ward’s “Between The Lines” and Tom Paul’s debut album “I Was King”. He would go on to work with these clients on other albums including Jim Wilson’s “Beneath Olympian Skies”, as well as parade music for Disneyland Tokyo for arranger/composer Scott Erickson.
