Bio / testimonials
"He’s got spunk…” - Everyone. Charlie the Kid’s high energy and upbeat style, along with youthful flavour and humour is what make him one of the GTA's most unique singer-songwriter’s. Equipped with songs, a guitar, guitar-case-kick-drum and license-plate-foot-snare, his style emulates the likes of 'Jason Mraz', 'Barenaked Ladies' and musical comedian 'Bo Burham’.
Playing since the ripe young age of 11, this kid’s been performing for years. Currently playing over 100 shows a year, he keeps busy performing with local and touring bands around Toronto and Ontario. Gigs range from pubs and bars, to sidewalks and busking festivals, to venues like The Mod Club, The Cameron House, The Painted Lady, amongst others. Fun stuff. Some big moments for Charlie the Kid were placing the 2017 Indie Week Finals in Toronto, making the Grand Finale of the Kingston Busker's Rendezvous, and this year, quitting his day job to pursue music. That last one was a big deal...
Aside from playing guitar and working on a record for Toronto band ‘Olivia and the Creepy Crawlies’, Charlie is currently working on weekly YouTube content and regular gigging in Toronto. Things are going alright for Charlie the Kid! --------------------------------

“Charlie the Kid hit the bulls-eye with his one-man fusion of high-energy vocal talent and animated comedic delivery reminiscent of Jim Carrey”
