Charlie Brown will be kicking off the New Year with the release of his second single "On My Way". The track looks set to storm the charts and continue Charlie"s reign as THE one to watch in 2013.
Just off the back of a phenomenal 2012 Charlie supported Dappy on his nationwide tour to a great fan reception.
Debut single "Dependency" showcased Charlie’s soulful voice, talent as a songwriter and highlighted exactly why now is the time he is stepping out from behind the scenes after crafting songs for some of the biggest names on the music scene.
"On My Way" is an uplifting track which was written after Charlie was going through a transitional period in his career.
Speaking of the track Charlie comments, "I was looking for a tune on my iPod that I could put on to inspire me and lift my mood, but there wasn"t one." Deciding to write his own, On My Way has a propulsive chorus that establishes Charlie"s gorgeous soul vocal proving his voice is one that will be heard consistently throughout the coming year. The song is inspiring yet understated. "You might work but I work harder/ You might fight but I fight smarter / Might not be on top of the world, but hey, I"m on my way."
Raised on a diet of Motown and "90"s soul, Charlie"s early influences can be keenly felt on the album and "On My Way" both melodically and lyrically.
His classic song writing and compulsive hooks with a modern-day twist explain why critics have likened Charlie to artists including Plan B and The Script. Not only is Charlie a fantastic storyteller, with an innate ability to relay detail without over-complicating a song, but he also has the stunning vocal ability to firmly stand out in a saturated market.
