Charlie Overbey (& The Broken Arrows)
From the smoldering ashes of some of LA's coolest bands erupts Charlie Overbey And The Broken Arrows.
Charlie spent years evolving as a musician, from Sunset Strip band Big Bang Babies to cowpunks Custom Made Scare to Deadbolt and Charlie And The Valentine Killers. Now he has emerged -- not entirely unscathed -- as a pretty serious songwriter. Thoughtfully chosen veteran rockers Jimmy James (Hangmen, Masons), Dave James (Superbees), Jordan Shapiro (Supersuckers), Joe Ginsberg (Chuck Ragan) -- and the new kid Charlie Nice – round out Overbey's stellar new band The Broken Arrows. Charlie says, "We've all lived a lot, we've all toured a lot, and we've all loved and lost a lot. I believe this is the key to a group of dudes that can relate to one another, and hang with mutual respect as a cohesive traveling unit and as a Band Of Brothers. Only with this kind of bond can the magic translate on stage. The Broken Arrows have that magic.” With their debut record The California Kid Produced and mixed by Charlie The infamous TED HUTT (Lucero, DKM, Old Crow Medicine Show, Chuck Ragan etc) is set to be released Jan 2015.
Charlie Overbey And The Broken Arrows have started playing shows and gearing up for some heavy road work including the European and Asian markets. THE BROKEN ARROWS shine big from the influences of former greats such as early Tom Petty and Springsteen, The Allman Brothers, Jackson Browne and Thin Lizzy.
