What to Expect
Typically a performance is live and consists of a minimum of one hour and maximum of three hours. During that time, depending on the client's preference, I will sing and play a set on guitar, ukukele, piano, or upright bass. Combination sets are also common, in which I play two or more of the aforementioned instruments throughout the set.
Charlie Shea is a composer, artist, and musician from Olathe, KS. She was performed by the Kansas City Symphony as a senior in high school, and her career in music has taken off from there. Charlie currently focuses on symphonic composition and solo music performance, as well as painting and digital art. Her solo music has seen success in local coffee shops and bars, and also online. Her art has been sold throughout the United States and Canada, and Charlie plans to someday sell globally. When she's not being creative, Charlie is a full-time mom her beautiful one year old, Violette. She is also an advocate who fights against the stigma for mental health as well as recognition and recovery, specifically with Schizoaffective Disorder and Schizophrenia.
Her famed musical compositions include the Kansas City Symphony-performed work "Realta Cosan" and the Lavoisier Project-performed "Exulansis" and "Excelsior". As for her paintings, Charlie considers her best to be "Magnolia", "Zelephanteb", and "Enouément".
Additional Booking Notes
My sound equipment is standard, but heavy. If you are able to provide a PA system or amplifier, that would be much preferred and appreciated. However, I am self-sufficient and able to provide sound equipment as long as there's an outlet to plug in to. Also, I will need a stage or space in which to perform. For those hiring my additional skills as a contrebassist, please keep in mind that I will need enough space to fit me, my bass, an amplifier, and two microphones. Thank you for your consideration!
