Described as "An Awesome Talent!" by Australian Guitar Magazine, Nick Charles has been a performing and touring acoustic musician for over 25 years on the Australian and international acoustic music scene.

It's no surprise that the prestigious Black Rose Acoustic Society in Colorado USA describes Australian guitarist, Nick Charles, as "a world class stylist and composer". His dazzling, melodic finger picking on 6 and 12 string guitars, stinging slide and a lifetime's stories and songs from the musical highway has him labelled by the Melbourne Age as "Australia's virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues"

During an extensive and acclaimed career, Nick has released many albums on major roots and guitar music labels. He has garnered world-wide recognition for a series of releases on Black Market Music, beginning with "My Place" and now his most recent albums, "Closer to Home" and "Return of the Travelling Fingerpicker".

This recognition has succeeded in having Nick signed to the Grammy award winning label, Solid Air Records -USA ("Home of the world's finest guitarists").

Averaging 150 shows a year in Australia, New Zealand the USA and the UK, his music encompasses an eclectic mix of acoustic roots including blues, folk and early ragtime jazz.
