Charlie Kendall is a freelance guitarist, producer, songwriter, and guitar teacher splitting time between Charleston SC and New York. He studied guitar performance and songwriting at Berklee College of Music in Boston with guitar luminaries including David Tronzo, Eric Gales, Wayne Krantz, Julien Kasper, Jeff Lockhart, Tomo Fujita, and Woody Mann.

Charlie’s sound can be described as eclectic and diverse, not restricted to any one genre. Originally from Charleston SC, Charlie grew up with a deep appreciation for Blues, Gospel, Bluegrass, Country and other roots music, but has been ever-evolving over the last decade of his professional music career to include all genres from Classical, Jazz, Pop, Country, Rock, Hip-Hop, Reggae, and everything in between.
Charlie has extensive private event experience providing customizable high end acoustic and/or electric guitar services ranging from ceremonies, cocktail hours, and rehearsal parties… to upscale solo jazz performances and specialty ensembles. He’s enjoyed years of national touring and has licensed music for Discovery Channel and Bravo, as well as an appearance in HBO’s “The Deuce” with his band Chameleon Culture.
