Album Notes
At age 13 Chuck followed in his father’s musical footsteps by cutting his own trail with an old acoustic guitar purchased from a pawn shop. After three months of lessons, Chuck began playing on a Sunday afternoon radio program transmitted from a local AM station.

During his early musical career, he performed over 800 shows on various radio programs and throughout the Carolinas, culminating in a seven year weekly stint at an award winning restaurant chain and other regular stints of four and one year in length at two other well established locations.

He studied music at the world renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts and later received degrees from three colleges and universities.

As a band leader, Chuck led a contemporary service at one of the largest congregations in the Carolinas for three years. Recording numerous albums with country & gospel groups along with an individual rock-a-billy effort and his latest pop rock release, Chuck has played in various musical productions and groups ranging from big band and rock, to acoustic and instrumental.

Chuck continues to sing, write, and record story type lyrics individually and with groups across the Carolinas, performing about 50 to 100 concerts a year. He has performed live nearly 1,500 times throughout his career. During the day, he instructs college courses online with a national university and in person at a community college.

Excellent rock CD. Pick up a copy today!
"I'm Gonna Be Your Hero" is an excellent rock CD that has a rootsy 50s/60s rock and roll feel to it. The CD highlights Chuck's excellent songwriting along with top notch musicianship and production. "Misty Moon" has the feel of a classic Van Morrison song. "Til There was You," will remind you of your favorite 50s love songs. "Summer" is another one of our favorite songs. It is a feel-good, toe tapping song with a hook-filled chorus. If you enjoy artists such as Van Morrison, Mitch Ryder, and Bob Seger you'll enjoy Chuck Brimer's "I'm Gonna Be Your Hero." Pick up a copy today.

Alexis Stevens

Great vocal, sounds a little like Sting.
A My Space friend turned me on to a couple of the songs on this CD. The vocal sounded so good I ended up getting it and I luv it that much more. The vocal fits the music very well, great combo. I like it allot, it's too country for rock and too pop for country, I dig that sound. Can't wait foe the next one to come out. My favorite song is Chuck Brimer's "Misty Moon". I hit play and the repeat button and just cruise on down the road.

The Charlotte Observer

The more I hear the CD, the more I like it.
When I popped the CD in my car player for the first time last week, I didn't know any of the songs. I just went with the flow of music as I rolled down Interstate 85. The number I found myself singing along with turned out to be "Red Headed Girl." The more I hear the CD, the more I like it. I played it again on the way to work this morning: A couple of tunes are still floating around in my head.
...He's got the gift, and one way or another he'll use it.

The Big Kahuna

Each of the 13 songs are gems unto themselves.
"I'm Gonna Be Your Hero" has become a fast favorite of mine. It's been spun in at least three of my five CD players, and more than once in my car. If you like a little country in your rock, or a little rock in your country, this album is definitely worth it.

Alternating tracks of driving rhythm with tracks of mellow sounds, this album is bound to please.By the end of the second track, Brimer has left us with no doubts that we are in good hands. Some of the songs... just had me smiling and laughing at the clever and marvelously funny pictures they paint. Others...left me with a pleasant melancholy I've not felt since I first started dating.... it's hard to pick a favorite track. Each of the 13 songs are gems unto themselves.

Ben Dungan "Gaston Alive"

Brimer's music can not be summed up in one word or phrase.
Brimer's music can not be summed up in one word or phrase. Once you think you have figured the answer out, he changes the questions on the next song. Is he rockabilly or honky-tonk? Is a tender balladeer or a rock ‘n roller?
One thing I do know is that Brimer writes pop music - - but not just any pop music. I call it smart pop. Writing smart pop music takes a lot of skill. It goes way beyond finding a catchy hook. Brimer finds a way to weave intelligent well-crafted lyrics into his melodies and instrumentations to create infectious catchy tunes that you'll be humming long after you are finished listening to his record.
However, the bottom line is that this is a fun record. Brimer won't leave you feeling down. With all of the negative news floating around each day, we all need a record that will pick us up after a bad day. Brimer has created that kind of record. And that in itself makes Chuck Brimer my hero.

Mark Waterbury "Music Morsels"

Catchy Tunes
Gastonia, NC’s Chuck Brimer seems infused with the souls of Roy Orbison and Carl Perkins. Singing like Roy without the high pitched croon and rocking like Carl with country flavors, Chuck maintains an edginess that is reminiscent of Jason and the Scorchers albeit less heavy and more twangy. This is highly entertaining music blending catchy tunes with energy and pure songwriting and performing talents.

Keith B

It's AWEsome! Love the horn parts, especially the last solo!
The lyrics on Red Headed Girl, & Hero, are poignant beyond belief! This album is great for road trips, study sessions, ...well, whenever you listen to good music!

Joshua A. Gates

Slick but comforting...a solid set...This swings and makes you smile
Slick but comforting, kinda like Chris Isaak without some of the depth, Brimer makes happy rockabilly with ease. This is a solid set that won’t set you to brooding, but his arrangements are sharp and familiar, and bound to sound great live. You may miss a little grit in the 4/4,but you can rock out with Chet Atkins-like sheen and ringing notes. Brimer’s jumpy guitar keeps the tunes from descending into a pop. Eagles-ish blandness, and his vocal twang is genuine.
The ballads, carried by Nathan Gray on piano, are the highlights for me, as are “Red Headed Girl” and “Broken and Bruised.” Call this Family-oriented honk-tonk, and call that a compliment. This swings and makes you smile, and if it doesn’t change your world, it at least may make you glad for a minute that you are still living in it.
