Internationally renowned Jazz artist Charlie Wood is royalty amongst the genre, starting at a young age as guitarist for legendary blues musician Albert King. Wood also holds a Brass Note award on Beale Street, the musical equivalent of a star of fame along Hollywood Boulevard, Charlie will be gracing the stages of KARAMEL at Wood Green.
Charlie Wood has established himself amongst the Jazz community and his musical ability is unprecedented. He’s been compared to being a similar sensation to “Costello”, “Dylan” and “Springsteen.”
Several years ago, Charlie released his first UK release an album, titled “New Suvieineers” and the tone of his music reflects his Memphis raised upbringing and holds a nostalgic enamor one can’t help but tap their feet to.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to watch Charlie play from the comfort of a homely and nieche venue.
“Charlie Wood is that rarest of combinations, a singer who’s as soulful as his songwriting is smart. He’s also a wicked piano and B3 player. He does it all, except ironing.” – Harry Shearer

Wushta’s joyful live sets mix Lo-fi, Synth Pop and Electronica. The former drummer of Portuguese punk band ‘BlackJackers” has swapped the sticks for keyboards, drum machines and a bass guitar, inciting the audience to celebrate life in the here and now.
