    Episode 69: Charlie Treat

    Episode 69: Charlie Treat

    In this episode, Jerrell speaks with singer, songwriter, and guitar player Charlie Treat. Raised on a farm in New England, Treat grew up listening to the music that suited his working-class surroundings — Delta blues, country classics, work songs, and Bob Dylan records — before traveling the country as a busker, accompanied by his acoustic guitar and 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass. He eventually ended up in East Nashville easily fitting into that musical community, even as his own songs ventured into the genre's outermost orbits (Description Credit: Devious Planet Media). Charlie walks us through his journey becoming a musician and the process of working on his upcoming album The Comet.
