For the past two years, M has celebrated the success of British acts at the legendary SXSW festival in Texas with interviews, videos and reviews. This year we spoke to some of the bands that received British Music Group funding to travel to the showcase, and we invited SXSW veteran Vic Galloway to comment on the showcase.
Today's artist is Charlie Simpson. Taking a break from his band Fightstar, Charlie recently released a solo album Young Pilgrim, which showcased his more folky singer-songwriter side.
PRS for Music will once again be going to SXSW and are involved in several activities, including two panels and a showcase at the British Music Embassy.
Charlie Simpson took time out to talk to M about the way he approaches songwriting, whether it’s with his band Fightstar or on his new solo project Young Pilgrim.
The singer and songwriter also enlightens us on his influences and who he’d most like to work with.…
Fightstar frontman Charlie Simpson caught up with M magazine and performed this very special impromptu acoustic version of his song Down Down Down in a boozer in Hoxton, East London.
