Charlie McKittrick is a fully independent singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist based in Port Sydney, ON. He is currently touring in support of his forthcoming release Right This Way. This marks his first full-length album. The ten song collection of all original tunes will eventually be available in CD and LP formats and will be released digitally,
worldwide on all streaming platforms May 2023.
As a solo artist Charlie finds that a mixture of folk, country and alternative rock sounds are what come through at the moment when writing. He kicked off his solo career with the release of Two Hearts, a 4-song EP, in 2018 and has been releasing singles each year since including some Christmas tunes.
Charlie also drums for international touring and recording Celtic rock group Tartan Terrors. Three of his own songs made it onto their latest release, including the title track Here's To Tonight.
When he's not on the road performing, Charlie provides drum instruction at Long & McQuade in Gravenhurst, ON.
Being outdoors and physical activity are among Charlie's favourite pastimes, perhaps only second to listening to vinyl records - of which he has many! Camping, fishing, swimming, hiking, running and biking are his favourite activities during the summer months. In the wintertime skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating are his go tos. And all year round is the perfect time for a couple fingers of single malt Scotch and the occasional hand-rolled cigar... around a campfire whenever possible!
