Born in L.A., Charles Burton has been playing blues, country, rock, and roots music for over 40 years. After making his initial mark on the L.A. scene, he relocated to Honolulu for much of the 1980s, and then spent most of the 1990s living and working in Tokyo, Japan before relating back to California. Burton has released several CDs and won the San Diego division of the 2009 International Blues Challenge. The Charles Burton Blues Band release Sweet Potato Pie was nominated Best Blues Album at the 2013 San Diego Music Awards.
Burton also does annual European tours, where he headlines everywhere from clubs to festivals, as well as doing a Scandinavian tour with Maury “Hooter” Saslaff (Big Jack Johnson & the Oilers) where they played over 200 gigs in seven months.
