Charles Ellsworth

The new politically-charged ballad from Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Charles Ellsworth will have you singing your way to the ballot (or mail) box this election.

In “Blessed,” Ellsworth explores the many injustices faced by the modern American. Reminiscent of anti-fascist folk favorite, Woody Guthrie, Ellsworth poignantly addresses topics ranging from wealth inequality and systemic oppression, to climate change.

With anticipation building for this Friday's release of his new album Cesaréa, Charles Ellsworth has dropped a studio video for one of his new songs "Growing Up Ain't Easy" as well as the first batch of dates for his North America summer tour.

Built on the foundation of the folk / alt-country I Americana sound that Charles Ellsworth has become known for Cesarea is still at times a departure of sorts. While keeping his lyrical focus on strong vivid story telling Ellsworth opens up musically and explores different areas of the blues, psychedelic, and post punk worlds he has only flirted with in the past. At its core Cesarea is an album about the growth that comes from change.

Charles Ellsworth, the southwest born and raised Brooklyn transplant escaped the harsh NYC winter to return to his roots in Arizona and record his first release since his 2015 Wildcat Chuck Charles EP. Ellsworth teamed up with producer Bob Hoag (Courtney Marie Andrews, The Format, Gin Blossoms) and the result is Cesaréa.
