Charlie Landsborough is back with Silhouette , a stunning new album of brand new recordings, with a dozen self-penned songs.
As history shows, Charlie shot to fame in 1995 when he was featured on prime-time Irish TV, singing what has become his signature song What Colour Is The Wind . The song subsequently reached # 1 on the Irish charts, leading to success in Scotland and the rest of the UK, before
spreading to Australia and the US. He has recorded albums in Nashville, won many Country music awards and has had his songs covered by legends including George Hamilton IV, Daniel O Donnell, Jack Jones, Pat Boone and Foster & Allen.
Silhouette follows on from his 2012 album Destination and is released to coincide with his UK tour. The album was recorded in Spain and the UK and sees Charlie at his very best with a blend of jaunty, uptempo country tunes, along with his trademark deep and heartfelt ballads...his traditional and much loved sound. The CD booklet includes the lyrics to his own compositions.
Charlie was inducted into British Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011.

Now, don't get me wrong, he's not breaking any barriers here, but he steers clear of the nauseating sounds perpetuated by others (who shall remain nameless), and when you factor in his own strong songwriting ability, you usually end up with an enjoyable release. And this one is no different. He's put out close to 20 albums now, and although this one leans even more heavily on the ballads, it will be a real treat for his fans, who still flock to his shows after all these years. It's the self penned material that comes across best, as befits a man who has written songs that have been covered by George Hamilton IV, Daniel O'Donnell (damn it), Jack Jones, Pat Boone and Foster & Allen. After all, no-one really needs to hear another version of 'Cold Cold Heart', 'City Of New Orleans', or ' Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain', no matter how well done they are.
So it's the likes of 'The Fool In The Mirror', 'Rivers And Streams' and 'Windin' Down' that come across best, and timed as it is to coincide with his UK tour, it will be lapped up by his always strong fan base.
A VERY FINE LINE - After the gradual introduction of the musicians we have a mid-tempo ballad.
NEVER GOING BACK - A typical thought provoking ballad.
COLD COLD HEART - What a pleasant surprise his rendition of this Hank Williams classic is. Quicker tempo than expected, with a hint of The Drifting Cowboys thrown in.
RIVERS AND STREAMS - A Spanish/French feel for this love song, with a modicum of Birkenhead thrown in, as a sweetener.
FOG ON THE BRAIN - Something I suffer from a lot. A pulsating rhythmic rocker, handled to perfection.
I COULD NEVER STOP YOU LOVING ME - A love song with a somewhat reflective message.
CITY OF NEW ORLEANS - This train song travels along without any major hold-ups. The gentle rhythm keeps you on the right track until the end of the journey, err I mean song, sorry.
`TIL I GAIN CONTROL AGAIN - Sung with warmth and feeling, sympathetic accompaniment.
THE FOOL IN THE MIRROR - Another fast-paced track with a solid beat.
IS THAT YOU? - Beautiful flute introduction, which the proceeds to wind itself around Charlies lyrics, giving an almost Indian feel. A haunting ballad.
STARTING AT THE BOTTOM - A slower rhythmic toe-tapper.
BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN - His friend, Willie Nelson, would be proud of this interpretation, there is no doubt. The song is sung with a warmth and sincerity, rarely found these days.Read more ›
