Charlie Overbey

Charlie Overbey may be a lifelong Californian now residing in New Mexico but his songs are forever steeped in the timeless traditions of the American South. 

Overbey once again has amassed a collection of introspective original songs that transcend the endless rock & roll party, taking yet another honest look at some of life’s most gritty moments. The result is the new LP  In Good Company.

Coined as ” The Punk Rock Spy In The House Of Honky Tonk” and hailed by Rolling Stone as an “ LA Cult Figure” Charlie’s new album In Good Company is a triumphant collection of road-hardened alt-country tunes born of Overbey’s travels successes and failures. Produced by Overbey and mixed by Ted Hutt featuring an all-star cast with guest appearances by Marcus King & Jaime Wyatt, Nils Lofgren, Charlie Starr, Rami Jaffee, Jimmy Vivino, Duane Betts, Corey McCormick, Eddie Spaghetti, Taime Downe and more! 

Overbey’s first success in the music industry came when his cowpunk outfit Custom Made Scare landed a deal with Side One Dummy Records in 1998. But before the band’s debut album dropped, Overbey had been on the run from the law for years finally turning himself in and spending a year in prison. The very same week he was released, the band hit the road immediately and toured heavily into the new millennium alongside seminal punk acts such as Suicidal Tendencies, Social Distortion, Agent Orange, Zeke, and REO Speedealer.

A side project of Overbey’s called Charlie & The Valentine Killers also toured in the late 2000s with David Allan Coe and Lemmy’s side outfit The Headcat. “It was still days of angst,” Overbey says, but the country-leaning project’s sound served as an important precursor to his current solo work.

 

Fresh off of his third Sirius XM Outlaw Country Cruise, he is gearing up for touring and has dates coming up with Blackberry Smoke, Marcus King and more to come! Look for In Good Company July 2024!
