A sixth-generation Texan, Charlie Robison hails from tiny Bandera, Texas. He and his brother, noted musician Bruce Robison, found an interest in music early on, and by the age of 15, Charlie and his brother began playing gigs around Bandera. Later, he made his way to the Austin scene, where he was a part of such bands as Chapparal, Two Hoots and a Holler, and The Millionaire Playboys. In 1995, he released his debut album, Bandera, followed in 1998 by Life of the Party, his first disc on Sony’s Lucky Dog label. In 2000, Charlie became part of history when the “Unleashed Live” Record was recorded at Gruene Hall for Sony’s “Lucky Dog” label. The album is a combined effort with Bruce and good friend Jack Ingram, and culminated with the successful Lucky Dog tour of the US. A second studio effort, Step Right Up, was issued in 2001 followed by his album, Good Times, in 2004. Charlie’s self-produced album, Beautiful Day, was released in 2009 followed by his 2013 release, High Life.
