Charlie Harris

FRESH: ‘No Pressure’ – Charlie Harris

There’s “No Pressure” from Charlie Harris!

by Christopher Smith

“No Pressure” marks a big step towards a more heart on sleeve, pop-oriented sound for Charlie Harris. “It’s about the energy one can feel when they are ready to love again; the light at the end of a long tunnel of healing. It’s a great feeling being ready to get back out there and put your heart on the line after you’ve been hurt, even though you know things might not go perfectly” Charlie tells us.

“At least you’re excited and finally ready to give romance a real chance again. This track is more organic than my previous work, and I can’t wait to continue down that path and start performing live!” he adds. This is Charlie’s first time working alongside some fantastic co-writers and producers, Jeff Daye and Lloyd Kikoler. With more yet to come! A native of North Carolina, Brooklyn-based Charlie Harris spent four years exercising the left half of his brain advocating for space exploration in Washington, D.C.

After releasing a few songs to friends and family on Soundcloud, he took a year off to refine his sound, move to New York City, and find himself as an artist. Charlie’s unique brand of electropop evokes a paradoxical sense of hope born out of darkness. Listeners experience eerie yet encouraging sounds of futurism paired with lyrics meant to push boundaries and expand horizons. Charlie creates relatable tracks with deeper meanings, toeing the lines between pop and electronic dance music.

Written by Christopher Smith

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!
