Well in to the year we thought it was time to catch you up on what is going on here at the label. With so much new on the agenda, 2013 is proving to be a wild and invigorating year!
We start out the summer with Michael receiving a real honor from the city. They have chosen MC to be placed on the “welcome to our city” sign. The unveiling is in June and even we haven’t seen it yet but it is quite a compliment, for sure!
You can now check out Michael Charles, literally! If you are a library goer you can now check out all of Michael Charles’ full length albums through the SWAN and the I-SHARE systems in Illinois libraries. We are working on the other states also and will keep you posted.
Speaking of CD’s it’s time to announce Disc Four of the “Under the Covers” CD single series!!! Being released in June we are once again proud of this production and eager for your reactions.
After touring the first four months of the year across the USA and Canada, Michael took some time to head home to Australia for a small amount of R & R but mainly to take care of business. MC started out by flying up to Queensland for a few foundational meetings for his proposed 2014 tour to Australia. Over the next few days and back in Melbourne he hooked up with his record producer, Greg Williams of Dex audio and Newmarket music for the day to master some recent recordings and discuss future career moves for MC. Next he was off to meet with Salik Silverstein, movie director at SOS Films for some preliminary filming for the documentary Mr. Silverstein is composing and directing about Michael. Another tremendous honor and a project of great magnitude, that we will elaborate on more at a later time. Last but not least was a visit to 3NRG radio where Tony Rockwell graciously interviewed MC and where Michael formally announced plans for his 2014 Australian Tour.
As always, we encourage you to keep your eye on MC’s schedule but would like to announce Michael will play his part in the Chicago Blues Fest at Buddy Guy’s Legends on Saturday June 8th, 2013 at 11 am. Michael will also appear at Buddy Guy’s as headliner on Tuesday evening July 30th. This is a show we guarantee you won’t want to miss!
We look for this momentum to continue all year long…..…..and as always MC hopes to see you “somewhere, someplace, sometime.”
