Charles Lyonhart grabs the audience's attention as he paints vivid images of a life in despair struggling to understand the complexities of a dark and seductive world. '.... a genuine voice and one who should be heard' -- The Kingston Freeman. You realize immediately that this is not just another guy with a guitar and a song list. Charles was born in the Bronx where Poe Cottage became a shrine and it's late author an inspiration. The 60's brought him in touch with the truths of Lenny Bruce, and most tellingly, the words and music of both The Beat Generation and the Folk Rock movement. Making his way through the 70's and 80's sometimes on stage, other times as a writer and music critic for publications like Rolling Stone Magazine, he eventually turned to his true talents in life, a visionary songwriter and seasoned guitarist. In the 90's Charles became a regular at The Tinker Street Cafe in Woodstock, The Bitter End in New York City and various local music festivals. Gaining a loyal regional fan base, the name Lyonhart has quickly become synonymous with emotionally charged ballads delivered with brooding intensity backed with exceptional melodic arrangements. Whether he's playing with his band or solo acoustic, his live performances effortlessly showcase the solid craftsmanship as a truly accomplished artist with poetic blended narratives accompanied by rich acoustic textures and distinguishing vocals. 'Lyonhart sings of life and relationships, injustice and irony, desperation and triumph, striving and betrayal, folly and achievement.... having a stash of unreleased Lyonhart tunes is like having a private treasure.' -- Irv Yarg, Woodstock Times. After appearing at the Woodstock 25th Anniversary concert in 1994, he was soon signed to Continuum Records and two of his compositions were chosen for their 1995 compilation 'New Music from Woodstock, New York.' with over 600,000 copies sold worldwide. In June 1997 his self-released debut album 'Leap of Faith' was well received, selling over 7,500 copies through his website and concerts. He garnered critical praise both in the press and by fellow musicians. John Herald titled Charles 'one of the best singing songwriters' he's come across in ten years. 'Charles Lyonhart is a truly inspiring artist. His melodies both haunt and energize.' --Myra Friedman/Author Buried Alive/Authorized Janis Joplin Biography. Recorded mostly live with guitarist Steve Raleigh, his next album 'Exception to the Rule' soon followed. Singer/songwriter Richard Shindell recorded Lyonhart's classic 'Shades of Black, Shades of Blue', a tribute to the legendary Thomas Jefferson Kaye. Signature Sounds released it in early 2000 as part of a special 4-song EP entitled 'Spring'. Working closely this past year with long time friends and collaborators, Larry Campbell, Lincoln Schleifer and Denny McDermott, Charles is now putting the finishing touches on his latest album, 'Down to the Hard-Line'. From the quietly powerful words of Lyonhart's newly penned 'Days Gone By' to the screaming rock and roll rhythms of his insomnia ballad 'Any Price For Sleep', this careful artistic blending of various creative layers has yielded the very best of all those involved. The buzz is already out that this will be an extraordinary collection of songs that will put Charles center stage of the alternative folk music world. WHO IS CHARLES LYONHART?
