Charles Harlow


Love playing and creating music. I generally play in rock or metal applications, but really like jumping into the blues realm occasionally.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is the one thing I can't see myself living without. Not just listening, but creating it. Playing live in front of an audience is something I've always thrived on. Its a give and take relationship. I give a performance and "take" energy from the environment around me.

What is your music dream?

To play music I've helped write around the world and be financially successful for it.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Less xbox's and PS4's. A set limit on Netflix and youtube. More physical human interaction than what we've gone too. It's even effected live event turn outs.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

EVH, James Hetfield, Zakk, Nugent, Page, Black Sabbath, and Rhoads.

What inspires you to make music?

I wanted to get chicks, but looking back at it.. I should have worked on my abs instead.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Lets have a good time.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Free, confident, and amazing.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

The dream of living on the road and playing year round is there. You can be successful if you have the will and the product behind you. Wether you're looking at a tour buy on, playing regionally for a while, or braving a West coast tour all on your own. There are ways of making your dreams happen. It just depends on how well you're prepared and how far you're willing to go.

What do you think of Drooble?

Feeling it out.

What frustrates you most as a musician?


Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

As much as I can. I go to shows as often as my schedule allows. I generally am at rehearsals or playing a show when other local acts are as well. I do book shows and bring other regional and local acts on the bill as well.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

This is completely subjective to the target audience. Some audiences enjoy polished-massive sounding mixes with crisp rhythm and lead lines. Others enjoy muddy fuzzed out tones and clipping vocals. To each their own, do what you think is the best.
