Charlie A’Court

Planted at the crossroads of roots and soul, Charlie A’Court possesses a mighty voice, fierce guitar work and contemporary songwriting that is felt by fans across Canada and beyond. His latest album, A’Court, Spiegel, & Vinnick, is nominated for Blues Recording of The Year at the 2024 East Coast Music Awards. Also known as the International Roots & Blues Kitchen Party, this fully acoustic album sees A’Court in a wonderful, synergistic collaboration with Australian blues legend, Lloyd Spiegel, and Canadian roots/blues icon, Suzie Vinnick.

Often stylistically compared to mentors like Eric Clapton and Otis Redding, Charlie has always been recognized for exploring his musical horizons. As a five-time ECMA winner and eight-time Nova Scotia Music Award winner, Charlie has earned awards for Blues, Pop, and R&B/Soul Recordings of the Year, and recognized as Entertainer of the Year. A’Court has also received multiple Maple Blues Award nominations including Male Vocalist and Songwriter of the Year.

This fall (2024), Charlie will release his newest album. “San Palarino” is an Americana-driven deep dive into growing older, emotional well-being, and the collective weight bearing down on humanity. Featuring co-writes with some of Canada’s top singer/songwriters including Matt Andersen, Terra Spencer, and Colin MacDonald (The Trews), the music is draws directly from his influences like, Martin Sexton, Melissa Etheridge, Hot House Flowers, and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit.
