The Dirty Charmers came together by happenstance more or less. It was a chance meeting bringing two very different and eclectic songwriters each with their own different and unique voices together in the same band for the same purpose and with similar creative goals already in mind. Thus the Dirty Charm was born.
Hard luck lots prove to be the most fertile of ground for songwriters although it is not a path one can take by choice, so much as it is a path some have had no other choice than to walk down. These vagabonds and troubadours seem to have had no other choice than to be outlaws and outcasts of some sort, considering all the combined years of experience, hardships and tragedies that stand as a muse between the two of them. Rightfully so the truth keeps them hell bent on expressing and exposing truths so that nothing else remains to be sugar-coated.
Rock and Roll is indeed a dirty business and the Dirty Charmers have been buried up to their necks in it for years now. With a healthy sense of adventure and a bad case of morbid curiosity, they remain on the hunt for the next song.
Creatively speaking they are a perfect storm of sorts bringing slow and brooding together with fast and bitter. Culminating at the crossroads where myth meets the magic and brewing deep within the underground where legends are born through trials of fire.
The mission is to bring integrity and substance back to what was once a legendary music scene.
