"Long enough I've done different kinds of music and covers. During that time I gathered many ideas for my own pieces. Now it's time to publish this! "
Charles M. Mailer is known as a percussionist and drummer in various bands (including XMas-Gala-Big-Band Würzburg) or as an entertainer and frontman of various Cover-Bands . With his own songs - self accompanied on EPiano - he proposes a new, previously unknown side of his musical activity. Songs before - between - behind and beyond the Blues - authentic - partially autobiographical - from life on the road and the ordinary daily mess between humans.
Mailer shows that blues is not always a three-chord-twelve-bar music. He takes up influences from blues, soul, country, rock, and personal experiences of his nearly 40 years of being a musician. Therefore he created his unique and creative stylemix called Blu:Soul or RhythmSoul.
Preparations are underway for the release of the first CD-production "Live @ The Studio Lounge" which is planed to be scheduled september or october this year. Some pieces were created in collaboration with the American free-lance lyricist and blues poet Freida W. Gantt from South Carolina who has contributed lyrics. The release oif the first Studio Album "Covered Up With Blues" is planed for spring 2015.
Charles M. Mailer is building together a lineup of diverse musical surprise guests for the recording sessions and bigger live performances. The cast ranges from a quartet (guitar-bass-drums-piano) to a XL-band with solo instruments such as blues harp, sax or violin.
