Charles Mansion is a 4 piece band based in Vancouver BC. Originally formed in Kelowna BC, aka Canada's desert, the band taps into the roots of Joshua Tree's desert rock flavors and mixes them with some psych, fuzz and a bit of grunge.
Originally formed when JD (guitar) and Mike (drums) met through their girlfriends at the time, who turned out to be sisters. Mike, being a talented drummer, having good taste in music and also not in 19 other bands, was somewhat of a unicorn... a white whale, and JD knew there was only one thing to do and that's start a band. Mike brought Brendon (bass) on board with whom he had played with in previous bands. A solid 3 piece for sure, but the cake needed some icing... enter Josh (guitar/vocals) who JD had known for years from being around the music scene.
The band clicked instantly, started writing and playing shows. They recorded and released an EP title 'Death By Misadventure' both online and on vinyl. Their follow up album 'Trash Can Mic Stand' was thought to have been lost for good, but it was recently discovered that it's been on Brendon's computer this whole time. It may or may not be released but don't worry, the boys still know all those songs so maybe they'll be released some day in a different form. In the mean time though, the band is currently putting the finishing touches on new material and will be entering the studio again in early 2022.
The band has opened for psych heavyweights Earthless and Sleepy Sun. They also cofounded Tune It Down Turn It Up, (tuneitdownturnitup.com) a multi day psych/stoner/fuzz/doom festival and workshop. The fest featured the legendary Dave Catching in it's inaugural year, following up the next year with not only Dave again but also long time Queens of the Stone Age sound man, Patrick 'Hutch' Hutchinson
Charles Mansion is planning a US tour for the summer of 2022 so stay sharp and watch out for some dates to drop
