One of the many great things about the Tamworth Country Music Festival is that it affords festival goers the chance to discover new artists of all ages, either busking or playing their own gigs or at someone else’s. That’s how I first saw the now 19-year-old Charlie Fittler when he was quite a few years younger than that, and I was impressed by his talent and also how much he clearly enjoyed playing music. Having released one single a few years ago, Fittler is now on the cusp of releasing his debut EP, with the first single, ‘Dying Breed’, out in the world. We spoke recently and Fittler is still enjoying music as much, if not more, than he did, amongst other things in his busy life. You can watch our chat on YouTube, or listen in Soundcloud or on the podcast. | Listen to ‘Dying Breed’ on Apple Music
