Mixing indie pop sound with soulful writing and an electronic influence, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Charlie Brennan is genre bending. His unique catalogue and versatility has earned him over 95 million streams globally, and his songs “Let Me Be” and “Cool” reached #11 and #39 on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart respectively.
A self-taught musician who has been writing since the age of 12, Charlie began releasing his own music in high school. In 2015, “The Ocean,” one of his early releases from his debut album “Letters”, was featured in Pepsi’s World Emoji Day campaign.
In 2016, Charlie independently released “Let Me Be”, which reached over 2.2M streams on Spotify. The track is featured on Charlie’s second album “The Last Time”, which has reached over 5M streams. Shortly after the release of the album, Charlie moved to New York City after graduating with a degree in psychology from Wake Forest University.
In New York, Charlie found his rhythm, playing sold out shows at The Bowery Ballroom, Arlene’s Grocery, Pianos and The Delancey. He released a follow up album “ODDS/ENDS” in 2019. Much of the writing on the album was inspired by heartbreak and the experience of living in New York as a motivated independent artist.
Charlie relocated to Nashville in 2020 to pursue his music and writing career. He released an EP “Same Moon” in December of that year, which has reached over 3.2 million streams to date. He followed up the EP with his single “May Flowers”, which was awarded first prize in the Folk/Americana category in the 2022 New England Songwriting Competition. He released his newest EP "The History of Everything We Went Through" on February of 2023.
