Charlie McNeal

FamilyHIS VOICE IS DEEP, RESONANT AND SEEMS TO CARRY THE ACHE OF A THOUSAND HEARTBREAKS. THE FACT THAT HES A YEAR AWAY FROM HIS 18TH BIRTHDAY MAY SURPRISE SOME, HOWEVER SPEND 10 MINUTES WITH CHARLIE AND IT ALL MAKES SENSE. THE PHRASE OLD SOUL IS A QUALITY OFTEN ASCRIBED TO YOUNG ENTERTAINERS, BUT MCNEAL WEARS IT WITH EASE. HE HAS AN UNCANNY KNACK FOR BRINGING A SONG TO LIFE WITH A DEPTH OF UNDERSTANDING AND AUTHORITY THAT BELIES HIS YOUNG YEARS, AND THAT GIFT SHINES ON HIS NEW ALBUM RUNAWAY TRAIN.Country music can make you feel a lot of different things, McNeal says. It can make you dance. It can make you cry. Its really versatile and I love that. I want to make music that moves people. It was actually a time of sorrow that taught McNeal the impact music could have and spurred the young artists desire to launch a career. No one knew that I had a secret desire to be a singer. But we had a death in our family and folks were at the house, crying and hurting. I pulled out my guitar and started singing. Immediately I saw the affect it had on people-- -that I could help alleviate some of their sorrow just by singing songs-- -thats when I knew what I wanted to do. A California native, who grew up a couple hours from the seminal Bakersfield music scene, Charlie was heavily influenced by the music of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam. I listened to them a lot, says McNeal. I got a lot of my musical inspiration from them and guys like Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Johnny Cash, along newer artists like Cody Jinks, Ward Davis, Sturgil Simpson and Colter Wall. They are proof that traditional country music is alive and well.Hes seen that impact first hand as hes performed in venues around his home state, building up an enthusiastic fan base. People are not only drawn to the rich, impressive timbre of his voice, but also the insightful, emotional songs he writes. He writes a lot by himself and with his sister, Corrin. She is fun to write. She loves stories. They recently wrot
