After the success of his debut single ‘St. Ives’, Leeds/London based musician Charlie Straw presents his latest DIY release ‘All I Know’.
While the humble arrangements and earthy production style may recall the likes of Ben Howard and Damien Rice, Straw’s poignant vocals and sincere lyrics assert his own authenticity.
Delicate strumming and echoing refrains form the bare bones of the track, before crescendoing into an electric guitar driven finale accompanied by restless piano and drums.
Recorded in a single thirteen hour sitting, Straw’s last fatigued vocal takes the song to an intense and cathartic close.
The release of ‘All I Know’ accompanies the announcement of a debut UK tour, which kicks off in April. For a full list of dates see below.
