Charles Wesley Godwin “Strong” – Listen

Strong‘ is the most recent single from Charles Wesley Godwin’s latest album ‘How the Mighty Fall‘ (outon November 5th), a follow up to his 2019 debut ‘Seneca‘.  The West Virginian has a voice full of a woody resonance, like a clapboard peppered with grit.  It’s the perfect vehicle for a song like ‘Strong‘ which celebrates being a survivor, and more than that – a picking it up dusting it down and going again model of endurance.  It marks Charles Wesley Godwin of one of the new potential saviours of alt-country – there are no big hats here, but there’s a feeling that is so much more real than that.  File alongside Tyler Childers or Colter Wall.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
