Things to Do at Sunrise
'Ambitious, visionary and ultimately gorgeous. Charlie North is the Gods' nectar of ambient music.' Nick Luscombe, Flo- Motion, London's 104.9 Xfm 'Charlie is wide screen musical genius.' Gordon Loncaster, Virgin Radio 'With this kind of album, anything is possible.' Lindsay Wesker, Music Editor of MTV Networks Europe 'A really lovely piece of film and a great track.' Briggy Smale, Jo Whiley Show, BBC Radio One 'Really lovely music ...atmospheric and haunted.' Justin, Sleep Thief Raised in Yorkshire, Charlie grew up surrounded by music. He started playing in bands and performing at concerts from an early age. A chance meeting with a record producer meant that he pressed his first record at the age of 11. "We sold the record to the other kids at school, it taught me a great deal and showed me that there's a lot more to the music business than just making music" notes Charlie. After school (and armed with two diplomas in sound engineering) Charlie took up residence as studio manager with the influential dance label UDG. Based in Leeds (and distributed via Eastern Bloc) this extremely successful time saw the label release a series of highly influential underground hits. Tracks such as 'On Your Todd' and 'Freebase' would go on to receive critical acclaim from both the underground and mainstream music press. Charlie later moved to London and became involved in a variety of studio sessions, engineering and producing at Abbey Road, Swanyard, and Mayfair studios. He was also lucky enough to be one of last musicians to ever perform live at the original Marquee Club.
