Charlie Imes is a San Diego based singer/songwriter who is mostly known
for his sun-drenched, beachside music which incorporates elements of folk,
pop, jazz & just about any other musical genre that suits the songs.

Charlie grew up in Torrance and Redondo Beach, in the South Bay area of
Los Angeles. He started playing in rock bands and hanging out on the Sunset
Strip, but soon realized that his voice was meant for a more laid-back musical
message. For years he played coffee houses & small clubs, but mostly he played
around campfires and at the beach for the pure joy of playing. At the urging of
friends & supporters, he finally recorded a collection of his songs in 2008, and
has been bringing the beach to stages ever since.

As comfortable as your favorite T-shirt & shorts, the warm feel of his debut
album, “On An Island”, is perfect to conjure images of those long summer
days at the beach. An engaging and humorous performer, Charlie’s songs
are sunny weather for your ears.

“Not many self-released albums are as polished, as fully realized as this new one
from San Diego's Charlie Imes. Imes is a strong, confident singer, polished in his
quiet showmanship and storytellers' approach to his delivery … a wonderfully
melodic collection from a gifted singer and songwriter.”
- Jim Trageser, North County Times, October 1, 2008

“Imes praises the simple pleasures of life for what they are.. His songs and lyrics
are uncluttered by irony or attempts at cleverness and are as straightforward as
any of the old Beach Boys hits … a great disk for cracking a couple of Coronas
with friends after a few hours of boogie boarding.”
- Paul Hormick, San Diego Troubadour Magazine, September 1, 2008
