Eddie Owen Presents: Charles Wesley Godwin w/ Special Guest Taylor Alexander
Advanced tickets: $20 ($25 day of show)
Charles Wesley’s sound is shaped by the time weathered hills and hollers of his home. Charles is a singer-songwriter born and raised in West Virginia. Nowadays, if you want to find him, you’d look in any dive bar, café, or live music venue in Appalachia.Charles didn’t find music at an early age like many other artists. It wasn’t until he was nineteen that he picked up a guitar and began singing songs.
He did however, grow up trout fishing in Upshur County streams, hunting on the Allegheny ridges, tagging along with his grandfather on the farm, and listening to old-timer’s talk about their days in his grandparent’s general store. Charles Wesley’s father was a coal miner until his birth and his mother was a schoolteacher. Little did he know, this background would come to play a major role in the songs and stories that captivate rooms full of listeners today.
He’s grateful to have shared the stage with artists such as Shooter Jennings, David Allan Coe, Luke Combs, Tyler Childers, Sundy Best, Waymore’s Outlaws, Aaron Watson, Colter Wall, and many more.
Whether he’s performing solo for a room full of patrons who’ve quieted to a barely audible murmur or a music hall full concert goers breaking in their boots to the rhythm of a Union Sound Treaty tune, Charles Wesley turns heads and opens ears everywhere he plays. His stories strike a chord in all of us and his voice gets the point across with a genuine authority.
