This is “Daisy (Piano Version),” a beautiful reimagining of the stand-out from Charlie Martin’s debut solo album, Imaginary People. Last month Martin announced the deluxe edition of Imaginary People which features 4 alternate piano versions of songs from the 2021 album. The deluxe edition, is available now for purchase on CD & cassette, alongsid standard vinyl versions of the album.
“I started writing ‘Daisy’ years ago. It existed just as a piano melody for the longest time. Around 2020 finally the words came that felt right,” explains Martin. ‘I’m singing about safe travels; how vulnerable traveling can feel and how grateful I am when things go well. This past summer I lost my grandpa; made countless trips down to Gulfport, MS where he was in the hospital (along Hwy 90), and I was working on this piano project in the time between those trips. Needless to say to it was a hard time for me and my family, and I was lucky as always to have music to lean on.”
Hot on the heels of a tour with Teethe, Martin is hitting the road next week with Ichiko Aoba. All dates over in the tour section. Additionally, on October 11th at 9:30 pm ET, Martin will be streaming a live performance exclusively on his Bandcamp page, and Charlie will be present in the chat taking questions from fans. The performance was recorded live in Austin, Texas around his recent hometown debut at Mohawk.
