• Hot Sounds In The City


A diverse mix of American roots music, out-of-the-box pop flourishes, gospel harmonies, and barroom rock & roll, Charlie Treat’s The Comet spotlights a songwriter whose left-of-center music redraws the lines between genre and generations. It’s a collection of songs whose paradoxical twists and turns are as unique as the man who wrote them. Raised on a farm in New England, Charlie grew up listening to the music that suited his working-class surroundings — Delta blues, country classics, work songs, and Bob Dylan records — before traveling the country as a busker, accompanied by his acoustic guitar and 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass. After a Kerouac-worthy series of milestones and mishaps led him back to the Northeast, he established himself as one of the region’s folk singing heavyweights before heading south to Nashville, where he found a new home in a city that had become synonymous with Americana music. Charlie easily fit into that musical community, even as his own songs ventured into the genre’s.

What hot sounds in the city should fans be listening to of yours right now?

Biggest Fool On Earth, Candi, and Drink With Me are great songs for summer in the city! How has the reception been to the new music?

People seem to like it a lot. As a folk singer originally I don't know what people were expecting but they say it sounds incredible (Thank you Jesse Thompson), good lyrics and the comment I've been getting the most is "It's great but I have no idea what to call it" What genre is it? You tell me. What are you looking forward to most when it comes to the new music?

Touring. We've been in Tennessee and surrounding areas a lot. I'm looking forward to getting on the road. What was the intention set for your music?

To write great songs. To have new ideas. To be distinct. To be succinct. To be myself. To pay the bills. To not be afraid. To never become one thing. What was the most important message to impart with your music?

Love can be the greatest power or greatest poison depending on the way you're attached to it. What is the call to action you want yourself to do after the release?

Make bold steps. Search in the darkness. Tour the country. What are the lyrics you want your fans to be repeating for the rest of the summer from this new music?!

"If I could spend the rest of my life on that soggy Boston pier skipping rocks at the old war ships and watching the wind blow through your hair I might. Happy I'd die."
