Originally from The Outer Hebridies of Scotland, Charlie Clark is now based in Los Angeles, California where he hosts a weekly music night called "Mad For Sadness" at Taix in Echo Park. Clark was a founding member of the criminally overlooked band Astrid, who released three full-length records, including 1999's sophomore lp, Strange Weather Lately, which was produced by legendary musician, Edwyn Collins. Clark was also a core member of the Scottish "supergroup", The Reindeer Section, which featured members of Snow Patrol, Belle & Sebastian, Teenage Fanclub and The Vaselines. Clark has also appeared as a guest vocalist and musician on records by The Zephyrs, Arab Strap, Mogwai and Snow Patrol.
For his upcoming, debut solo record, Charlie Clark has hooked back up with Edwyn Collins, whose AED label will release the Feel Something ep on July 22nd. The five song record features the talents of Brandi Emma, Eric McCann (who also produced the record), Isobel Campbell, Yohei Shikano (My Hawaii), Kaitlin Wolfberg (Fort King) and Joe Luisi (A House For Lions). Feel Something shows off Clark's keen ability to write a smart pop song, but the Scottish songwriter has been absorbing the sunshine and laid-back vibes of his adopted home.
Clark will be performing regularly throughout the west coast of the U.S. the second half of 2013, along with a UK run of dates, that are currently in the works.
