Named Indianapolis’ "Best Jazz Musician" of 2015, 2016, and 2017 by NUVO Magazine, Charlie Ballantine is a professional guitarist whose music stems from the traditions of folk, jazz, and blues. His fluid, eclectic sound combines jazz, surf, blues, pop, country and folk-rock, and was described by Vintage Guitar Magazine as “beautiful and complex, ranging from melodic journeys to raging heavier sounds.” He weaves together twangy Americana with traditional jazz and heavy reverb to create an unprocessed sound full of melancholy and drama. He released his first album, Providence, in 2016, and his widely anticipated fourth album, Life is Brief: The Music of Bob Dylan, will be released in April 2018.
