Album Notes
With a vintage swagger and an air of classic sound in his pocket, Charlie Sutton drops the second video to his, quickly becoming, highly anticipated Primitive Songs for Modern Times.Pairing perfectly with the steely slides and echoing clap, “Radioactive Hound” is a slideshow that pays due homage to the Americana style Sutton is firmly establishing within his own frame.
Like dusting off the records that influenced modern sounds, the kind of music made with bare hands, blood and sweat, Primitive Songs for Modern Times (produced by Travis Ward and Charlie Sutton) is shaping up to be a gem of analog Americana sensibility and pure sound, unphased by the synthetic nonsense consuming the modern landscape.
Primitive Songs for Modern Times is slated for a January 2020 release on Junkerdash Records.--Nanobot Rock Reviews

Boise, Idaho's Charlie Sutton is one of those songwriters whose work feels intimate and familiar on first listen without ever getting stale. While he’s currently working with the more blues-tinged Curtis/Sutton & the Scavengers, the solo material he shares on Soundcloud is charming but subtle folk-pop, frequently with an easy country feel. ‘High Desert’ is a real winner, a contemplation on rural life set off with beautiful harmonies, a softly fingerpicked banjo, and a few unexpected but lovely chord changes. --Sing Out Magazine

Creaky hinges and drawn shadows frame the lead music video for Boise’s Charlie Sutton.“Slick Willie (The Ballad of Willie Sutton)” has been let out of its cell.The steely guitar, strings, banjo, and syncopated blends sink the melodic story of the elusive inmate while showcasing the all-intriguing range of Sutton himself. Aiming for a 2019 release of his album Primitive Songs for Modern Times, Charlie Sutton entices us with his distinctively Americana style. Produced by Sutton and Travis Ward (of Hillfolk Noir fame), the track features Charlie Sutton (banjo, guitar, and lead vocals), Sam Alkire (upright bass, backing vocals), Adam Straubinger (fiddle, backing vocals) Alison Ward (washboard, percussion) and Travis Ward (backing vocals). Filmed in the Old Idaho Penitentiary. --Nanobot Rock Reviews
