Introducing Charlie Straw. Hailing from The Wirral, young Brit musician has unveiled a rather beautiful Tour Documentary to coincide w/ the release of debut single, St Ives, alongside debut UK headline tour details.

St. Ives has very quickly amassed over 350,000 streams (+ a top 5 placement on Spotify’s UK viral chart), and is a fascinatingly assured introduction to this young artist. Its delicacy and sense of slow-building atmosphere is matched with a stirring, fragile vocal. It sits comfortably along the homespun wooziness of For Emma, Forever Ago era Bon Iver, coupled with that Ben Howard or James Vincent McMorrow lulling sense of emotion and intimacy.
The documentary offers an excellent opportunity to gain a glimpse further into the early world of Charlie Straw as he begins to tell his story from its infancy. In the company of friends, Charlie weaves up, down and across the UK, relying on the kindness of strangers to offer the group a roof for the duration, and forming new relationships in the process. Its touring at its most raw and simple, and details the opening moves on film for this promising new voice.
Charlie Straw kicks off his UK Spring tour in Glasgow on the 9th April, concluding at Dalston Boys Club on the 18th April. Tickets are available from tomorrow. Full list of dates below.
