Charlotte Martin could not stay away for long. When we last saw and heard Char live, on a full scale tour, she was getting ready to be a first time mom as well as writing a brand new record. You know, that music thing she does. She must have known that we missed her very much...missed that energy of her live shows. That feeling of connection via her music with everyone around as we all watched and listened to her blow us away. Fast forward to fall 2009. Charlotte releases a very unique CD, 'Piano Trees,' a collection of instrumental piano pieces spanning from 2005 to present. She wrote this music to inspire the creative creatures in all of us. And it is certainly beautiful. Pure creativity evoking emotion and feeling without a word. Even without lyrics, Charlotte's music will move you.
The 'piano trees: mad fast acoustic tour' is a very quick, 4 show east coast run of shows which Charlotte played in support of 'Piano Trees' as well as to reconnect with her fans and share some new music. It's going back to the roots in a way...straight-up unplugged piano. And these were some very special shows as you will see and hear from the recap pages below.
If you were at any of the shows and would like to contribute to this page, please email your reviews/photos/video to me at jules[at]darkest-limits.com and I will put it here. Click on the active links below to view the show's page. Thank you for checking it out! Much more to come!
