Charlie and the Foxtrots are a gang of seven new-folk musicians who’ve recently been creating a lot of buzz in their local Nashville scene as well as nationally. In January 2013 Chas Wilson (vocals/guitar) recruited each of the ‘Foxtrots’ one by one into the current line up: James Varner (drums/vocals), Matt McClure (bass), Jeremy Webster (piano/vocals), Andrew Mcpheters (banjo/mandolin/trumpet , Josh Ramos (guitar/harmonica/banjo/mandolin), and Rob Hutchison (fiddle). Their name, Charlie and the Foxtrots came from the NATO phonetics for CF, “CharlieFoxtrot,” which is military slang for “Cluster F***;” an aptly chosen name considering the complexities of conducting a band with so many members. Charlie and the Foxtrots thread their poppy and energetic writing style in with the country and folk instrumentation reminiscent of Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, and Local Natives.
The Big Bad Wolf” is the second single off of Charlie and the Foxtrots’ upcoming album Golden, set to release on July 8th.
