Album Description

Michael Charles - 19+ (2 CD + 1 DVD in a triple CD package)

COVID-19 resulted in the demise of my 2020 touring schedule.  My thirteenth consecutive tour spanning the USA, Canada, and Australia would not happen.  Therefore, to stay united with my following, fans, audiences, and fellow musicians during the pandemic, I retreated into the studio alone, with no engineer, no typical crew hovering about, to video record some songs to premier weekly on the social networks.  The videos received a tremendous reaction and the audio from the first nine sessions eventually became the downloadable album, “19”.
The weeks turned into months but at the end of three months a light shone at the end of the tunnel.  Still not able to tour, we, with much caution, brought the band into the studio to informally record just for the sole purpose of entertaining over the internet. The views, once more, astounding.  Unfortunately, after four weeks we went back into full shut down mode and the sessions came to an end.  
Now after thirteen longs month of quarantine the reality became apparent, these thirteen sessions were the “2020 tour”.  Even though these raw videos and recordings were originally created only with the sole intention of broadcasting them on the social networks, and never to come out on disc, it was after the months turn in to a year plus, the decision did eventually come about to release all the video recordings and more, onto CD’s and DVD, developing into the project you are reading about right now, 19+.
19+ will play a unique part in my sixty year career as it moves forward my discography, but even more importantly, becomes a testimonial, a historical reference, and an explanation of my work during the pandemic and reveals how I glued 2019 and 2021 together.
Michael Charles (from the liner notes of 19+)
