Charlie Faye in Studio 2A on The Home Stretch 12/2 3:30pm
Charlie Faye will be stopping in with Will Sexton for an in-Studio 2a performance at 3:30pm Friday Dec. 2nd. She is performing Friday night at Club Congress for her Tucson CD release party.
Charlie Faye was in Tucson about two years ago on a year log tour where she spent a month at a time in a new city. Tucson was her first stop and she recorded a song, on her new cd, with Calexico and Sergio Mendoza. See below for details about the tour and CD.
On January 1st, 2010, Charlie Faye pulled out of her hometown of Austin, Texas, to embark on a modern bohemian adventure. In 10 months, Charlie made her home in 10 different towns; starting a new band in each town, performing live and recording a new song with them.
Charlie's tour was more like John Steinbeck's famous road- trip with his dog than a musician's mad dash across the country. Instead of landing in a city, playing a show, then taking off the next day, Charlie spent a month getting to know the people and personality of each place she made her home.
Throughout the year, Charlie recorded songs across the country for her upcoming album with members of Calexico, The Eagles, Lil' Band O' Gold, Navarro (Carole King's band from the 70s), and Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris), Warren Storm, Dave Way (Michael Jackson), Paul Bryan (Aimee Mann), Brian MacLeod (Sheryl Crow, John Hiatt), Ian Moore (Jason Mraz), Kenny Vaughan (Lucinda Williams), Will Sexton, and Chris Scruggs.
