Artist of the Week - King Charles

Here's the first post of what we'd like to call 'Artist Of The Week' where we review an up and coming artist thats caught our eye recently.

This week we check out King Charles.

Hailing from West-London the singer-songwriter began his musical career by forming the band Adventure Playground in 2007 who went on to tour with the likes of Laura Marling and Noah And The Whale. However the band disbanded (no pun intended) in 2008.

His solo debut single, Time Of Eternity was released in 2010, which gathered considerable attention from the press and radio. This led to him later that year winning the prestigious International Songwriting Competition by a unanimous vote. From here he has been touring the UK and overseas to much critical acclaim.  Most recently he supported Mumford & Sons on their sold-out US tour whom he has also written with.

If Prince and Bob Marley were to have a lovechild that lovechild would undoubtedly be King Charles. Both in style and sound. With folk riffs and reggae soul 2012 is set to be his year with the release of debut album LoveBlood 7th May.

Watch out for next weeks artist! TTGV
