A note from Chuck about his upcoming album....
Hi Friends -
I’m working on a brand new CD (my 12th). I have a really good batch of new songs, and a few amazing musicians playing with me. I hope this ends up being your favorite record of mine. I think it’s going to be for me.
If you could please spare a few minutes and watch my video and read what my project is all about, I’d appreciate it. It’s a huge undertaking, and you can be an important part of it.

You, my incredible tribe of wonderful fans & friends, have stood by me the past 25 years. Let’s do it again! Thanks!
Chuck Brodsky is a storyteller, a songwriter, a troubador, a modern day bard. His wit and irony, down-to-earth warmth, and quirky, rootsy, finely crafted songs, tell stories of oddball and underdog characters. His songs celebrate the goodness in people, the eccentric, the holy, the profound, the courageous, the inspiring, the beautiful. They poke fun at what needs poking, and sometimes challenge what needs to be challenged. They’re sworn to tell the truth.
Over the past 25 years Chuck has performed at festivals and in concerts all across the USA, Canada, Ireland, Denmark, England, Israel, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales, and the Shetland Islands of Scotland. He’s performed three times at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and 22 of his Baseball story songs have been enshrined in the Hall of Fame’s sound recording library.?
Chuck and his songs have appeared in several films and on tv. His beloved Philadelphia Phillies featured an interview with him as well as his song “Whitey & Harry” in the documentary “Richie Ashburn: A Baseball Life.” The 2003 Sony Pictures release “Radio” included a cameo by Chuck as well as his closing title track. “Moe Berg: The Song” is featured in the PBS film “Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story” (2010). Kathy Mattea’s recording of his song “We Are Each Other’s Angels” is in the film “Dear Mr. Goodlife” (1998). “Blow ‘em Away” has been recorded by David Wilcox and many others, and also appears on the Christine Lavin produced “Laugh Tracks.”
Having received world wide acclaim for his previous albums, Chuck’s 11th and most recent release “Tell Tale Heart” was among the top ten most played CDs on folk radio for all of 2015. Four of Chuck’s early CDs were produced in Atlanta by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, while four of his more recent CDs were produced in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, by J.P. Cormier. His March 2015 release, Tell Tale Heart, was self-produced and was recorded in Asheville NC. His new CD, Them And Us, also self-produced and recorded in Asheville, will be released in May 2018.
