Paris from the very beginning has always been about the bars for me, really, and about all the colourful characters I've met in them. Playing in them, hanging out in them, and eventually working in them too. It's been a fun place to live, and the fact that you could play a few songs in a bar and get a bit of cash and some drinks has meant that life's been relatively easy really most of the time, so I guess that's one of the things that's kept me here so long.
Can't beat it! :)

My song "Kallithea Girl" was written for my ex girlfriend Angeliki, whom I met while tending bar many years ago at "Le Galway" which is right on the Seine.
As I'm sure you know :)

Thanks for talking to us, Charlie!
Luckily for us, the album is out now and the wait is over!
