Charles Ellsworth Plays at Mock Crest Tavern

charlesLet’s help welcome Charles Ellsworth, Shadow Puppet to Mock Crest Tavern August 29th! They are stopping by while on their West Coast Tour and their show begins at 8:30 p.m.

Charles, originally from Arizona, brings a blend of Americana, Country and Blues music with him. He attributes such greats as Johnny Cash, Chuck Ragan and Steve Earl as some of the strongest influences on his musical career.

When  someone new appears I reach for my laptop and begin my Google search for reviews.  Other people’s opinions can certainly sway someone. And in this case, this review of Charles Ellsworth should have you writing the performance date on your calendar!

“Charles Ellsworth is a storyteller. If his music doesn’t keep you listening (and it should), his vivid lyrics will stop your hand from skipping anything on this EP. Ellsworth’s vocals remind me of Matt Berninger, laced with the blues and 1960s country. “Last I Heard and Last I Checked” is an ode to what could have been—just a man and his guitar, soulfully pondering. Lyrics like “tell the Lord your plans if you wanna make him laugh, cuz when I told him mine I had him rolling on his back” were reason enough for me to finally figure out how to use the repeat function on my home stereo. You’re going to hum these songs, and your friends are going to ask you for a copy of whatever it is you’re singing. Lucky for them, Ellsworth is happy to share. Just find him on Facebook already.” –Andrew Roy SLUG Magazine

His website offers an Immediate download of “Gentle On My Mind”. It’s available in high-quality MP3, FLAC and several other formats. You can also visit his FaceBook page.
Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
