Gopherwood is pleased to present this fine group to our stage for the first time. They cetainly have been lighting up stages in northern Michigan for a few years now, so we think it's time they came to Cadillac.
Charlie Millard has been entertaining Northern Michigan diners, audiences, fundraisers, and festivals with his piano playing since he was 14 years old. His first album, Hattie Jane, came out in 2012. His growing popularity has him traveling all over the state so we are lucky to get him back!
Charlie co-founded Hattie Jane Records with his song writing, record producing, and playing partner, and father, Jerry Millard. With percussionist Michael Binienda, they have formed a trio that has been thrilling crowds wherever they stop to play, with influences like Tom Waits, Patrick Watson, and The Kinks. He has developed a unique sound, voice and thought-provoking lyrics/poetry of his own with tones of an indie-Americana style that is reminiscent of a Seventies’ folk/rock, singer/songwriter.
Singer-songwriter Charlie Millard is a complicated mix of yesterday’s vintage and current musical Americana.”
