Charlie’s solo performances have the energy and fun of a rock show, while maintaining in intimacy that makes for an entertaining and memorable evening. It has been said of his solo performances that it’s easy to forget that there is not a full band onstage! Charlie continues to be one of America's most original and compelling musical artists. He takes the stage alone, and leaves the stage with a roomful of new believers.
Charlie Farren emerged onto the national scene in the early '80s as lead singer and guitarist with THE JOE PERRY PROJECT. In that band Charlie established himself as one of the hottest young singers to emerge from the Boston music scene, writing the hits 'Listen To The Rock' and 'East Coast, West Coast’ and 'I've Got The Rock And Rolls Again'.
In 1986 Charlie, along with Dave Hull (Joe Perry Project) and John Muzzy, formed FARRENHEIT and released a self-titled debut album on Warner Brothers, produced by Keith Olsen. Three singles from that album, 'Fool in Love', 'Bad Habit', and 'Lost in Loveland', as well as video exposure on MTV, established FARRENHEIT as one of the premier new rock acts, and winning them the opening slot for the sold-out BOSTON Third Stage tour in 1987.
Now working on what will be his 17th CD, Charlie has been described as contagious, displaying a candor rarely demonstrated by former arena rock stars. “It's clear he has not lost the ability to captivate a room full of people no matter what the size,” writes Tom Dempsey of SoundCheck magazine. His live solo performances remain the perfect forum for his remarkable talents.
