Charlie Faye headed out from her hometown of Austin, TX to embark on a modern bohemian adventure. In 10 months, Charlie made her home in 10 different towns; Tucson, AZ, Los Angeles, CA, Portland, OR, Boulder, CO, Shreveport, LA, Burlington, VT, Milwaukee, WI, Nashville, TN, Asheville, NC, and New York, NY. The way most musicians tour - going from place to place, night after night - they never really get to see the cities they’re playing in, or get to know any of the people who live there. Charlie didn't want to just skim the surface, so she spent a month getting to know the people and personality of each city. Traveling alone, Charlie assembled a new band in each town, played shows, wrote, and recorded a new song with acclaimed local musicians, including members of Calexico and the Eagles, as well as Tony Gilkyson, Paul Bryan, Ian Moore, Chris Scruggs, Kenny Vaughn, Will Sexton, and Malcolm Burn. The resulting record, Travels with Charlie, hit #7 on the Americana Radio Airplay Charts.
