Charles Newkirk

Charles Newkirk

Charles

grew up in Raleigh NC, listening to the sounds of gospel at his church.  He would watch the excitement of the musicians as they played their hearts.  This sparked an appreciation for the emotion and sanctity of music.  Though he did not play at the time he would marvel at the power music had to change one’s mood.  He began to try different instruments.  It makes sense that he would end up playing guitar seeing that his father played.  There were three other guitarist in the church.  All of them with different styles of play.  One had a background in funk, another blues, and the other R and B.  His father played old time gospel.  This gave him a great appreciation for different styles of music.

With plans to go to college for engineering Charles made a change to pursue music.  He proceeded to attend NCCU for a BM, concentration in jazz performance.  Jazz was not his passion but was a great foundation to understand a facilitate learn virtually any style of music.  He completed his studies and his music journey began.

Charles has had an opportunity in the last 10+ years to work with various artist and cover bands, as well as give back to the Church that inspired him musically.  He has had opportunities to teach, lead bands and produce. He is now playing with the Eg Peters Band and has found a great fit to play with other experienced and well seasoned musicians.
