Globe Hall Presents Charlie Burg on Saturday, November 5 —
Where were you the first time you heard Charlie Burg’s Infinitely Tall? Or, rather —where will you be? What does that place mean to you? Hopefully it’s somewhere special.
Infinitely Tall is about spaces —the ones that make, break, shape, and uplift us. The debut album marks a shift for the Metro Detroit, Michigan-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
Across this album’s 15 songs, Charlie augments his bedrock of lo-fi soul and lush indie-pop with exciting new textures:the forward motion of driving post-punk, sparkling electronic abrasion, and the melodic grip of romantic 90s indie-rock. Burg, who plays nearly every instrument on the record, marries the golden-era perfectionism of his early music with an enticing new fondness for chaos.
In the touring world, Charlie created a foundation for himself through supporting artists like Ashe, Moonchild, and Jeremy Zucker in 2019 across the US and Europe. He even traveled as far as Indonesia to play Jakarta’s renowned Java JazzFestival. These strong beginnings led to sold out headline dates playing 500+ capacity major market rooms in Spring of 2022.
Infinitely Tall is Charlie’s first music since 2020, and first body of work since 2019. Built from the ground up, it’s an ode to home that, hopefully, feels like a home for you —wherever you may be. On the heels of this new record, Charlie is gearing up for his first proper headline tour of the U.S. and Europe, followed shortly by major festival appearances coming in 2023.
