King Charles is a singer-songwriter who’s sound has been described as
everything from psychedelic rock to folk-pop. Born and raised in London,
Charles fell in love with country music, took up the guitar, and was
writing his own music by the age of 17.
Following a year at Durham University, Charles returned to London in 2007 without a degree but with the new moniker ‘King Charles’. He formed a band, Adventure Playground, who along with other like-minded souls, made West London’s Bosun’s Locker their base. Adventure Playground went on to tour with Laura Marling and Noah and the Whale, but disbanded in 2008.
Having just signed a global deal in the US with Universal Republic in partnership with his UK independent label, Mi7 Records, King Charles is currently recording his debut album to be released in the 7th May 2012.
