A&R Pick of the Week: Charlie Burg
Our in-house A&R scout Sam has selected Charlie Burg as his Pick of the Week
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Tame Impala and (just maybe) Deee-Lite, Charlie Burg fuses elements of Bedroom-Pop with funk to create, what he calls, "conscious Indie-Soul" music. "To Dance Is To Love" is his latest instalment of this fusion, with a "Groove Is In The Heart inspired" bassline to fit.
Charlie Burg is featured on 4 influential Spotify playlists this week
The Syracuse-based, Detroit-born singer, songwriter and producer has amassed over 2 million streams in total from his catalogue so far, which dates back to 2016. The 22-year-old has seen a huge 345% increase in his playlist followers this week, pushing his total to 424,000. He is featured on four influential playlists; Butter, Rainy Days, COLORS' Weekly Releases and nourish.selected. Charlie is capitalising from such strong playlisting too, with his direct followers growing at a rate of 3.48% to 5,700 this week (Instrumental Music Scouting Platform).
