Charley Crockett, Tentpole Festival, Mt Dundeed Estate, 4th March 2023 by Mary Boukouvalas

Texan blues, country and Americana singer, guitarist and songwriter, Charley Crockett was originally a blues singer, straying into other American roots music incorporating soul, gospel and country, fusing all these sounds into a distinctive, earthy signature.

Charley enlivens country music by looking back for inspiration and crafting his own signature sound through his own songs and the songs of others, weaving old school blues, R&B, soul, Cajun, western swing and other classic touchstones with country, creating his own singular “Gulf & Western” sound. Melissa Goldberg from CMT (Country Music Channel) said: “There’s a magic to Charley Crockett. You hear it in his recordings and live shows, and you see it when he walks in the room.” Prolific and charismatic, CHARLEY CROCKETT released two albums in 2022, Lil G.L. Presents: Jukebox Charley and The Man From Waco.
