Howdy folks I'm glad to see you have stumbled upon my page! I'm a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Pacific Northwest. I've been playing live music and writing songs for over 25 years now-- starting with my first gig in St. Louis at the age of 15. I’ve lived and seeped up the musical cultures of such places as: St, Louis, Seattle, Portland Oregon, Boston and Vermont. I currently live in beautiful Boise, Idaho with my wife and three kids. I co-front a band called Curtis/Sutton & the Scavengers and I also back up local musicians from time to time and play solo shows around Boise and the Pacific Northwest. Curtis/Sutton and the Scavengers have opened for or shared the bill with such acts as: Hillfolk Noir, Benyaro, Eilen Jewell,The Young Dubliners, The Mastersons, DBUK, Pastor Pat White, Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats, Jeff Crosby, The Country Lips, Bart Budwig, and several other artists in and around the Pacific Northwest. As a solo performer, I’ve opened for: Merl Saunders, Leftover Salmon, John Cruz, Hillfolk Noir, Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers and many other acts I can't remember off the top of my head. I was also featured as a solo performer on Garrison Keillor’s, A Prairie Home Companion, in October of 2006. I consider myself a songwriter first and foremost but I also, paint, and write poetry and short stories. I gather inspiration for my songs from films, poems, visual art, fishing, nature, music and my awesome and inspirational family. I'm currently working on a Charlie Sutton solo album with the help of my talented friend, songwriter, musician and producer-- Travis Ward. Nanobot blog recently premiered the video single: "Slick Willie: The Ballad of Willie Sutton". The single is now available via Band Camp, itunes, Amazon… etc. I'm looking forward to the release of the full album entitled "Primitive Songs for Modern Times" set for release in June 19'. The album will be produced by myself and Travis Ward of Hillfolk Noir— featuring: Sam Alkire on upright bass, Adam Straubinger on fiddle, Alan Ames on lap steel, Jason Beek on drums, Alison Ward on washboard and Travis Ward on Jawharp, and keys. Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a chance to listen to some tunes while you are here!!
