Charlie Landsborough shot to fame in 1995 when he was featured on prime-time Irish TV, singing what has become his signature song “What Colour Is The Wind”.
The song subsequently reached number one on the Irish charts, leading to success in Scotland and the rest of the UK, before spreading to Australia and the US. He has recorded albums in Nashville, won many country music awards and has had his songs covered by legends including George Hamilton IV, Daniel O’Donnell, Jack Jones, Pat Boone and Foster & Allen.
Charlie’s 2012 album ‘Destination’ was recorded in Spain and the UK and includes more than a dozen self-penned songs. The 16 new recordings see Charlie at his very best with a blend of jaunty, uptempo country tunes, along with his trademark deep and heartfelt ballads… his traditional and much-loved sound.
The album also includes an appreciation by actor/comedian Ricky Tomlinson, as well as the lyrics to his own compositions.
