We listen to a ton of music every day, and every once in a while, we have the pleasure to come across something truly special. This is definitely the case of Charlie Zahm and his brand new release, “Sing Me A Song Of A Lad Who Is Gone”.
Throughout his extensive career, Charlie managed to stand out as a great soloist, bringing the feel, sound and spirit of Celtic music to stages throughout the USA. His deep, baritone vocals have been described as “once-in-a-generation” and Charlie received praise and accolades for his work.
His most recent album, “Sing Me A Song Of A Lad Who Is Gone” is a tantalizing combination of folk intimacy and Celtic melodies, making for a vibrant, yet timeless sound. This release features 11 tracks, from several songwriters, as well as a stunning rendition of traditional “Cam Ye O’er Frae France.”
Charlie set out to really capture the sheer beauty of these tracks, while adding his own stamp and personality to these performances. This release also embodies Charlie’s extremely diverse background as an artist and performer.

The opening track (the album’s titled track) unfolds with a beautiful introduction, which sets the mood right for the entire arrangement. The song later evolves organically, making for a truly impressive dynamic and emotional build-up. The production of these recordings really serves the artistry well, adding clarity and focus to each and every single performance, making this album a truly must-have for fans of contemporary Celtic music.
