Charlie Grant Band & Reema
July 6, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - July 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am
Entrance Fee: 8€
Charlie Grant lives in Berlin, is half American and half Scottish, and grew up mostly in the South West of England. He got first break in music as a songwriter for hire in London after being offered a publishing deal with EMI and got busy writing songs for lots of up and coming talents as well as a few household names in both Germany and the UK. However, the “Big Dream” of writing and releasing music as an artist in his own right refused to stay quiet and kept pestering him from the back of his mind…So, pulling in favors, and forming a new currency based on pints of beer owed to various musician friends and studio owners, Charlie got used to recording in the dead of night and set to work on a set of songs that hopes to put storytelling, musicianship, and a love for good old fashioned song craft front and centre. His songs are inspired by the push and pull, the light and dark in all our relationships and draw influence from the likes of The Beatles, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Elliott Smith and Beck. Charlie performs solo and with his band, “Charlie grant and the barons” and So far has self released two EP’s, “Turn into Ghosts” and “Chemistry” available to download via all major digital platforms. A third release, “the astronaut EP” will come out later in the summer of 2017.
About Reema :
Reema says her self-penned achingly sad folk-inspired songs are her way of communicating and have been since she started writing them at the age of seven. She has, in between then and now, been experimenting with different kinds of sound from punk to synth pop but has arrived back at the songs in their naked form. Just little twinkles of guitar and her voice guide us through stories about love, loss, friendship, life and ghosts.
All the colorful stage clothes and album artwork are handmade by Reema herself and feature her drawings and paintings of paisley covered animals and people, either printed onto fabrics or cut into collages.
During the last years Reema has had the feature song on recent movie, ‘Love Rosie’ and has been featured on the European soundtrack of ‘Twilight Eclipse’ and supported great bands like ‘The Kaiser Chiefs’, ‘Imagine Dragons’ and ‘Biffy Clyro’. She is now working on her next album and looking forward to what comes next.
