Hi! It's Charluxx.
It’s taking me an awful long time to become Charluxx.
Sexy Funk, my up and coming first album... is actually my second album.
The first, I never got to record.
I started writing music in my 20s. I made an album, wrote all the songs, music, lyrics, played all the instruments with a keyboard that I rented from Italmelodie in Montreal. I recorded with an Atari Mega ST computer using a Music Sequencer called Cubase. I put all my ideas on computer disks, recording tape and on paper... and nothing happened. Submitted a song to a Canadian music fund program, somebody stole it (I heard it on the radio a few weeks later.) Played a funky bassline to a musician I knew ...he stole it. I had a crisis. I couldn’t afford musicians and studio. I shelved the whole thing.
The music was always there though. Throughout the years I have recorded a lot of song ideas.
To be quite candid, I felt I wasn’t quite ready yet. I needed to further my musical education. I’ve been listening. Studying. Understanding.
Now I’m ready to unleash. And it is something unique. But the musicality was there from the start.
So, to honor the 20 year old me, I am going to finish and release the album “Blue Sky From The Window.”
I’m also writing a book that chronicles the journey, and showcases all the paintings I did in that productive era.
My second album is already written, so it will have to wait a bit, but might be my third record. There is some serious gold in there. I can’t wait for you to discover it and help me applaud this talented “unknown” musician.
Stay tuned, stay funky!
Peace and Love,
