“Chuck Brodsky can sing, fingerpick, and strum with the best of ’em … a storyteller, and a riveting one at that … an underlying tone of warmth and compassion runs through all his carefully observed narratives.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine
Chuck Brodsky is a storyteller, songwriter, troubadour, and a modern day bard. With only his acoustic guitar and his voice, he’ll draw you in with genuine, down-to-earth warmth and his quirky, finely crafted songs.
Using wit and irony, set to haunting melodies, he tells the stories of oddball and underdog characters through his syncopated guitar strumming or sweet finger-picking.
His songs celebrate the goodness in people - the eccentric, holy, profound, courageous, inspiring, and the beautiful. They poke fun at what needs to be poked, and sometimes they challenge. They’re sworn to tell the truth.
Influenced by Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Lowell George, John Hartford, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Greg Brown, The Rolling Stones, and Nic Jones, Chuck started writing songs in a style that is very much his own, yet pays homage to the traditions.
Since 1995, each of his ten albums has been critically acclaimed - most recently his 2013 release The Baseball Ballads 2, which was named to MOJO Magazine’s top ten list of Folk albums for 2014.
Four of his early CDs were produced in Atlanta by Kristian Bush of Sugarland, while his most recent four studio recordings were produced in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, by J.P. Cormier.
His March 2015 release, Tell Tale Heart, is self-produced and was recorded in Asheville.
Chuck Brodsky has performed three times at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and 20 of his celebrated Baseball story songs have been enshrined in the Hall’s sound recording library.
