Event InformationCharlie Straw is thrilled to unveil his debut single St. Ives alongside ‘The Road To St. Ives’ - a mini documentary showcasing a month-long trip from Edinburgh to St. Ives, as Charlie sofa-surfs his way through the UK to play 30 live dates in 30 days.
St. Ives has very quickly amassed over 350,000 streams (+ a top 5 placement on Spotify’s UK viral chart), and is a fascinatingly assured introduction to this young artist. Its delicacy and sense of slow-building atmosphere is matched with a stirring, fragile vocal. It sits comfortably along the homespun wooziness of For Emma, Forever Ago era Bon Iver, coupled with that Ben Howard or James Vincent McMorrow lulling sense of emotion and intimacy.
Charlie Straw on St. Ives: “Around the time I was leaving school, I had my first ‘real’ relationship - on first listen St. Ives perhaps sounds like a heartbreak song, but really it’s just me missing an old best friend.”
The documentary offers an excellent opportunity to gain a glimpse further into the early world of Charlie Straw as he begins to tell his story from its infancy. In the company of friends, Charlie weaves up, down and across the UK, relying on the kindness of strangers to offer the group a roof for the duration, and forming new relationships in the process. Its touring at its most raw and simple, and details the opening moves on film for this promising new voice.
