Lonely C (aka Charlie from Soul Clap) presents his debut solo album Charles & Tribulations. The album is a body of music born over a 5-year period during which Lonely C has charged forward amid life’s complications. Questions of identity, of love and relationships, of ego, and how to maintain balance and sanity through it all come bubbling to the surface across this primarily self-written, performed and produced album. Lonely C can be heard singing, playing guitar and keys, drum programming and arranging on Charles & Tribulations, while Brooklyn-based keyboard wizard Morgan Wiley of Midnight Magic provided additional production, elevating the original demos into the finished product we hear today. The album also contains features from a host of special guests: Grammy-winner Kendra Foster, known for her work with D’Angelo & The Vanguard as well as Parliament-Funkadelic, sings her heart out on Hold Up and Aint Worried — the latter also graced by songwriting and trumpet performance from the great Greg Paulus from No Regular Play. On Folks Be Lyin', we get a taste of dance music’s most infamous alien, the tragically departed Sa’D "The Hourchild" Ali. We're premiering the sixth track from the album, titled Sickness 4 Your Thickness, a crossover track of classic & deep house that works its magic with a combination of a deep funk bass, floating synth, repetitive vocal and a steady straightforward beat.
