UCSB Arts & Lectures Presents: CHARLEY CROCKETT
“Some voices are unmistakable. True modern troubadour Charley Crockett has one such voice, and he knows how to use it.” Grammys.com
“Prolific, stylish and uber talented, Charley Crockett is an old-school country music superstar in waiting.” Independent (U.K.)
Like nothing you’ve heard or seen before, Charley Crockett is a genuine Texas original. Tapping into Americana mythos in his music, his distinctive, earthy signature earned him the 2021 Americana Music Awards’ Emerging Artist of the Year honor. “Drawing from traditional hillbilly mountain music, vintage soul and R&B, Crockett’s old-school country music twang – as well as his exceedingly dapper dress sense – harks back to another era” (Independent, U.K.). Crockett traverses the uplifting, hard, sweet, complex and delicate aspects of songs and life itself.
