“Someone Else’s Dream” is the brand-new EP by singer/songwriter Charlie Hole, due for release October 6th. Still in his 20s, Charlie has already won praise by global superstar Rod Stewart, identifying him as an emerging talent who has written a “beautiful song”.
Watch the very intimate and stripped down version of the song below.
Though born in the seaside resort Bournemouth, it was London that inspired Charlie to write the first track from the EP “The City”. He moved to the capital at 19, experiencing first-hand the beauty and struggles that living in London can bring. The EP “Someone Else’s Dream” expresses his feeling of being lost and found whilst maintaining a determination to achieve his own dreams: “I think this EP has a certain soul-searching about it; I had been living in London, having a beautiful time and learning about all the world has to offer, but at the same time experiencing huge setbacks and frustrations in my career and personal life. This is a coming of age record; I was searching for some kind of clarity and definition in life, some kind of certainty in the midst of all the confusion. It was that time where you’re trying to work out who you want to be; holding on to dreams and praying that they don’t end up breaking you.” Charlie Hole
Now Charlie is taking his music not only on the road, but also into living rooms across the UK and Europe. For over 10 years, he has played more than 1000 gigs and opened for world-class performers such as Billy Ocean and Steve Harley.
