Known for his crazy guitar-slapping techniques and great live performances, accomplished Americana singer/ songwriter Charles Law and his band Jagged will be performing live as they celebrate their official album release of “Choices” on the AFIRMRecords label.

The album contains a wide range of talented musicians which include drummer Stevie DiStanislao (from Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Gilmour) Christine Ellis (Martha Davis/ Motels) with guest appearances by Kevin McCormick (Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, David Crosby), Bruce Lett (Ernie Watts Quartet) Jeff Scott Evans (Blimp), 

Tim Gibson (Zero D,) and a duet with Delaney Gibson (Wheatus). The album release party is a free event and will start at 4:30pm ending at 7:30pm.  Following their album release party, Charles will perform in Austin at this year’s SXSW Music Festival followed by a national tour which will include Nashville, San Francisco and the Bowery Electric in New York.

A 2012 International Songwriter and 2009 MAVRIC Music Awards nominee, Charles Law performs his own brand of what has been referred to by fans as  “California outlaw” and is known for his unique guitar spanking technique, reminiscent of the late Michael Hedges.  Charles’ songs have received airplay on such outlets as NPR and CMJ radio outlets with his songs reaching #1 in Brooklyn, NY, #3 in Whittier, CA and #6 in Chicago, and have also had his music in the third season of the MTV show “Made.”  His past performances at San Francisco’s Union Square, The Citrus Festival, The Balloon Festival, Burning Man, and the Ventura Theatre opening for Neville Brothers are highlights for Charles whose consistent performances have garnered enthusiasm of fans and noted musicians alike.

Charles Law and his band Jagged became favorites of local radio station show 95.9 Octopus Rock Revolution, and soon were teaming up with 95.1 KBBY’s club promotions.  Noted veteran musicians began flocking to Charles’ performances to sit in. In addition to the artists performing on the album, such artists as Jimi Christie (Lucinda Williams), Julie Christensen (k.d. lang) , keyboardist Tilford Jackson & producer David Bianco (Coal Chamber) have recorded or played shows with Charles Law in the past.
