FRESH: ‘You Say’ – Charlie Yamson

Charlie Yamson debuts with “You Say”.

by Christopher Smith

All giving up to give himself the means to realize his dream in a year, here is the crazy challenge that has launched Charlie Yamson, young artist-entrepreneur, self-taught and passionate singer-songwriter. An adventure that he invites you to share daily with the release of his first single “You Say”. We willingly lend to the romantic and modern pop/R & B accents of Bruno Mars or Ed Sheeran. The influences of his childhood include Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, The Beatles and James Morrison. Behind his piano, Charlie Yamson composes songs tinged with emotions. Emotions that young talent aspires to share with its audience. Charlie learned very early his first chords on the family piano before writing his own songs at the age of 16 years. For the teenager he is, things are clear: “I knew why I was done and I knew that I will be strong and tenacious to go to the end of my dream”.

At 20, between odd jobs and wandering, he travels the roads of France, Eastern Europe and Canada; a journey full of twists and resourcefulness where he will not stop provoking his luck by dint of obstinacy and work. A decisive meeting, that of his future producer, will soon give a boost to his destiny: Charlie Yamson then launches an ultimate challenge, giving up everything to devote himself entirely to his music. This adventure both artistic and entrepreneurial, in the pursuit of his dreams, he wants to share every detail, every moment with his audience through photos, videos and confessions to look like reports. The first studio recordings are released in 2019 and his first single “You Say” is the first to witness a story full of hope and determination. A story that Charlie Yamson invites you to follow, and to write with him.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
