Charlie Van Stee is one of my favorite musicians and songwriters in the world. Always generous with a gig, he has played, seemingly, everywhere in town with his band, Charlie Van Stee Trio.
His recent musical exploits have seen him break new ground artistically, recording a minimalistic Alvis Ruxpin EP alongside his forthcoming, all the bells and whistles release, Tigers Will Eat You. His new stuff has much of the flavor of the Charlie Van Stee Trio sound, but it also has something more. Something different.
In this audio interview, Charlie shares his experiences busking for spare change in Seattle, his experience booking shows in Minneapolis, his undeniable attraction to making music at any costs, and how he balances life’s many demands with his music career.
