A Breton man's journey!
“…a folky orchestration, an energetic groove with a 100% Celtic vibe to it!”
Charlie Le Brun (born in January 1988 in Rennes) is a French singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Brought up in a traditional family from the western region of France called Brittany, Charlie started speaking the local Celtic Breton language from a very young age (with French and English). A diligent and talented student, Le Brun joined the National Conservatory for Music of Rennes in 1996, where he began singing and went on joining the Regional Youth Wind Orchestra on the classical flute in 1999.
During his teenage years, the singer then shy and reserved, started to compose his own songs, with the dream of someday performing on stage like his pop and folk idols Alan Stivell, Yann Tiersen, Sinéad O’Connor, The Chieftains and The Corrs.
In 2008, the Frenchman decided to start a musical career, in order to share his passion for his native Celtic heritage: Charlie was then soon rewarded by numerous awards, including ‘best performer’ and ‘best composer’.
In collaboration with The Corrs’ producer Billy Farrell as well as with producer Alex Borwick, the prolific young singer continues to share his passion and his love for Celtic music. He brings listeners on a unique musical journey, through a repertoire that includes some of the most beautiful songs from his native Breton region, depicting a universe of Celtic legends, faraway lands and love stories…
Le Brun also interprets his own original songs, inspired by the rugged and wildland of his native Brittany: combining pop music and traditional instrumentations, these authentic songs of a Celtic pop-folk influence, include lyrics in Breton, French, English and Irish Gaelic. A leading artist of the new generation of Breton pop musicians, Charlie has now become a very sought-after singer performing at international venues including New York, Melbourne and Shanghai.
