Charlie Mars

Charlie Mars - Words and Music - 2012

by Rita Houston

Mississippi's own soulful rocker, Charlie Mars, has been taking the long view in his career, and it shows. The songwriter and guitarist unveils a gorgeously-evolved sound on his sixth album, Blackberry Light, and he joined me in Studio A to perform a few of the songs live.

Charlie Mars' fifth album 'Like a Bird, Like A Plane,' has recently been released, and the Mississippi-originated singer-songwriter stopped in for an acoustic performance and conversation with Alisa Ali over at FUV's studio A. He talked about the constant touring of his early days, and how it wasn't till he struck a jackpot--not on tour--but at a casino that he was able to find some time to focus more on his songwriting and the direction of his sound.
