Charles Watson


Originally from Sheffield and member of Slow Club, Watson wrote and recorded his debut solo album over the winter and spring of 2016/17.  Watson co-produced the album with longtime collaborator David Glover at Tesla Studios in Sheffield and featured a hand picked band, including Guillemot’s Fyfe Dangerfield and Hot Club De Paris’ Paul Rafferty.  A former writing student of Central St Martins and The Faber Academy, Watson took inspiration for the record from the recurring themes and language of the JG Ballard novel ‘Hello America’. The result is a stunning record that transports the listener on a journey of vivid lyrical imagery and aural soundscapes.
