Growing up in a cultural Gumbo pot outside Paris, France, Evyn Charles was immersed in the sounds of the world.
He played violin in a classical orchestra, bass in a Reggae band, and has never stopped singing
Right out of high-school, he played music at Club Med resorts, starting to refine what would turn into his trademark Soulful Beach Groove style.
Following in the footsteps of Van Morrison, Bob Marley and Eva Cassidy, he combines infectious party songs with heart-tugging numbers.
His prodigious repertoire covers practically every genre and era, or as he likes to describe it “I play songs that people like.”
A typical performance will travel from Sinatra to Surf guitar, Kenny Chesney to Foo Fighters, with a side trip in his native French and some Irish favorites.
He also has a wonderful soft side and can provide instrumental guitar music.
Equally at home on a solo acoustic guitar, with a duo, trio or his band The NeverQuitters, he performs at venues ranging from neighborhood restaurants
and country clubs to festivals as well as parties, weddings and special events.
Evyn’s musical anchorage of many years has been Tony’s on the pier in Redondo Beach, California, where he plays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Tony's was voted one of America’s Best Beach Bars by Travel and Leisure magazine and CNN, and one of the 6 Best Beach Bars in America by Maxim magazine and Fox News!
Some have credited Evyn’s music with raising the profile of this iconic establishment.
Evyn’s CD “Spare Me The Details” is available at CDBaby.com or iTunes.com.
Many more original songs are available here and on YouTube.
