Today we’d like to introduce you to Charles Irwin.
Charles Irwin is a band from Tampa, FL consisting of four members: Micah, Salad, Matt, and Ban. Some of us have known each other for practically our whole lives. Micah and Matt met in middle school. Salad and Ban have had close family ties their whole lives. The four of us were brought together through similar interest like skateboarding and eventually music. We formed the band in early 2017 though some of us had been playing music together long before that. The first time we all got together to play was in Salad’s garage in the spring of 2017. We immediately realized the chemistry we had together. Since then, we have been working hard, playing as many shows as we can, and having fun while we also work on releasing our first album.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
We create and record music. Our music tends to be about emotional outcomes of personal experiences and also our personal desires. We do it mainly because it’s fun and because we feel it’s essential. The music we make should make you feel stuff and it should make you want to dance and go make music yourself.
Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
All we can say is just try to get organized and maintain a good work ethic. find supporting sources of income while you need to. just work hard and smart.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
You can find our music on all streaming platforms and you can follow @notcharlesirwin on Instagram for updates on our upcoming projects and shows.
