Country Music recording artists, Tim Charron, brings a bit of Country Rock with a Twist of Lime to the FNSW stage, Nov 12.
The beach life is the good life for this Rhode Island native. Growing up on the East Coast set the sound for Charron.
At just 14 years old, Tim and his buddies formed a band and he began his music career. His first show was at his high school for a MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) event. He wowed the crowd by coming out to the stage to the same intro that Elvis Presley used for his shows. Charron still uses the same intro for all of his shows to this day. Tim is not only a talented artist, but a huge advocate for young kids who are bullied with his Livin’ The Dream Anti-Bullying Campaign.
If you asked Tim to name some of his greatest influences he would cite musical greats like John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Nirvana. However, one of the greatest influences on his life (and in his music) has come from Mother Nature herself, the beach.
“Growing up in Rhode Island was great,” Tim said. “Half of the time we were in the city, and the other half we were in the sticks. We were always summering at Matunuck Beach in Rhode Island and that’s where I developed my fascination with the beach/ocean lifestyle.”
This lifestyle has permeated itself into the singer’s sound propelling him to career that has led to sharing the stage with Bret Michaels (Poison), Willie Nelson, the Charlie Daniels Band, Clint Black, Sara Evans, Dustin Lynch, Rodney Atkins, Darryl Worley, Randy Travis and many other artists who have reached the peak of the musical mountain.
The shoreline six-stringer still brings his theme song and zest for the stage to his live shows today. While promoting his album Chasing The Sun, which features country mega star Jason Aldean’s band, Tim has become a champion and warrior of the road, taking his ‘Trop Rock’ sound up and down the East Coast, to the West Coast, and Internationally with stops in the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Costa Rica and Germany.
The Nashville resident will be teaming up with Jason Aldean’s band again for his next album and will also be working with #1 hit songwriters Clay Mills (“Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” – Darius Rucker, “Beautiful Mess” – Diamond Rio, “Fall” – Kimberley Locke) and Marty Dodson (“Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” – Billy Currington, “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven” – Kenny Chesney, “Let Me Down Easy” – Billy Currington) to write the songs for the album (along with writers from Clay and Marty’s songwriter coaching forum, Song Town).
“I am on fire to entertain people. Nothing makes me happier than whipping a crowd into a singing, stomping, screaming frenzy! For me, it’s the ultimate high.”
When he’s not entertaining massive crowds, or recording songs that make you want to dance and sing, Tim can be found connecting with one of his first true loves, Mother Nature. Splitting his time between Nashville, TN (where he’s been for seven years) and Florida, this performer has plenty of opportunities to discover new outdoor adventures, travel and enjoy sports such as beach volleyball and basketball. Tim never passes up an opportunity to get out on the water either, citing paddle boarding, jet-skiing and boating/sailing as some of his favorite pastimes.
