BIG LOUD THANKS GODWIN
3/29/23

Big Loud Records has welcomed Appalachian country-folk singer Charles Wesley Godwin to its roster. The Morgantown, West Virginia native draws his influence from the likes of Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Ryan Bingham, Willie Nelson and Chris Knight. His previously released albums, Seneca and How the Mighty Fall, put his love for country-folk front and center.

“I first heard about Charles last year from my brother Eric [England]; fatefully, the timing aligned perfectly with when our company was exploring endeavors in alternative genres, branching out into Americana, indie, folk, roots, and more,” Big Loud Partner/CEO Seth England shared. “I was blown away immediately by Charles' undeniable talent, grit, songwriting ability, and distinct perspective; it truly sets him apart. Big Loud is excited to stand proudly with him and his team as we launch a new chapter for our company and bring this body of music to the world.”

Arthur Penhallow Jr. of True Grit Management, who manages Godwin alongside Reed Turner, added, "The most important thing to Charles was finding a partner who would fully support his artistic vision. Big Loud is clearly committed to that and their passion for Charles' music is unmatched. We look forward to working with them during this exciting next phase of his career.”

Godwin is looking ahead to a massive tour this year, which is packed with headline club show dates in addition to support slots on tours with Zach Bryan and Cody Jinks. Find the dates here.
