ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Charlie and the Rays is fronted by sisters Rebecca Stobbe (guitar/vocals) and Jordan Stobbe (bass guitar/vocals). They originally got their start busking at Seattle’s iconic Pike Place Market in their High School years with best friend from childhood and original founding band member, Gracia Bridges. This was the catalyst that inspired them to take their music to the next level and transition from street to stage. In the years following, they built a full band and established themselves in the historic and tight-knit Seattle music scene — but ultimately found themselves pulled toward the larger waters of the Big Apple. 2018 saw the release of their self-titled debut album Charlie and the Rays.

That’s Where You Were Born is their new creative endeavor, driven in part by a desire to focus on stripping back to the basics and re-acquainting themselves with their roots. “Our sound has evolved quite a bit since our founding,” explains Jordan, “We have incorporated horns, mandolin, and heavy keys in past recordings, but with our new record’s sound we paired down to just the core instrumentally, which accentuates our harmonies and songwriting.” This EP is rich with allegorical storytelling, narratives of love, and tellings of dissent around the political injustices of our current landscape.

An intentional record filled with the spirit of revolution and inspiration, That’s Where You Were Born is a taste indicative of the many courses to come. When asked about the project, Jordan had this to say: “I think my greatest hope for this record, is that people really feel the inspiration behind the melodies and the lyrics. I hope that the songs move people, and get them thinking, and make them feel the way I feel when I listen to songs that inspire me.”

"— sisters Rebecca and Jordan Stobbe and childhood friend Gracia Bridges lend masterful harmonies to inspired arrangements, crafting a collection of songs that pay homage to ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s rock while establishing an authoritative voice all their own." - The Big Takeover
