CHARLIE MAYFAIR – SUNSET SOUNDS FOSTER BAND


Watch My Hands - Charlie MayfairCharlie Mayfair
  In January 2010, a band was born: with fire in their bellies and rapture in their hearts, they took to stages sharing stories woven into songs. This band is Charlie Mayfair.

The early months of the year saw the band racing around their hometown writing songs, making friends, and letting people experience their unique style of folk-fired pop. They hollered their gigs from the rooftops and Brisbane heeded their call.

And so their three-part-harmonised hollering led them to play at many lovely venues like The Powerhouse, The Troubadour, The Zoo, The Sound Lounge, World Bar and The Old Museum sharing the stage with the talented likes of Old Man River, Dan Parsons, Skipping Girl Vinegar, The Bedroom Philosopher, The Boat People, Loren, TheCoronas (IRE) and Iceland’s Svavar Knutur, amongst others.

Wasting no time jumping into the studio, a short six months from inception, their debut release Watch My Hands “is a five-track harmony wonderland” (Scene Magazine) imbued with a bohemian flair while striding effortlessly between elements of folk and pop. Launched at The Zoo in Brisbane to an impressive capacity crowd, the release has since received enthusiastic nods from across the nation with a feature on triple j Unearthed, spot plays on the station, and a growing collection of glowing commentary on the bands’ live shows and debut recording.

Having made a quick trek to Sydney to launch the release to a welcoming reception at the Finders Keepers markets and MUM, the remaining months of 2010 will see the group once again hit the road for their first east coast tour which follows the release of their debut video clip for ‘If I Fell Down’. The shows will feature new songs and showcase the newly expanded bands’ impassioned live show.


Debut EP – Watch My Hands


Watch My Hands - Charlie MayfairCharlie Mayfair

five-piece band Charlie Mayfair formed a mere four months ago.”
– Jayvia Magini, Rave Magazine

“This is a really sweet folk-pop song, lovely harmonies going on.”
– Zan Rowe, triple j Unearthed

Available in stores via Green Distribution and online via Waterfront Records
