"View From My Room" is a portrayal of human insecurity and struggle between ego and higher self. The marriage between Charlene's unique voice with its lyrical twang and Greg Johnson's acoustic/electric guitar strums, takes you on a journey that is honest, heartfelt and tinged with an edge of anger. The music itself blends folk, alt.country, pop and rock elements in the sonic territory positioned between Shawn Colvin and Jewel.
"View From My Room" (nominated "Best Folk" by the Orange County Music Awards) was produced and recorded by Paul Stebner at Slack Boy Studios in Tustin, California. The album features nine originals and one cover song-an alt.country version of Dave Alvin's "Border Radio" with guest appearances by Kerry Getz, John Bazz (bass player of The Blasters) and Alex Armstrong on riquinto guitar. Other notable Orange County artists that lent their talents include Steve Carson and Marnie Ann on vocals, Don Reed on dobro, Randy Rusk on guitar, Jon Mattox on drums (Young Dubliners) and Carol Roman on piano.
In 2005, Charlene and Greg with their son, Shane, finally gave in to wander lustings of music on the road. They sold their house and most of their belongings in Southern Calif., quit their stressful jobs and hit the road in a 36 foot RV to promote "View From My Room." The goal was to tighten their performing chops and experience America together.
After that life-changing experience the intention could only be to live authentically and continue to grow-writing songs that are honest along the way. They have since settled in Colorado with a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains as a daily reminder to live life to the fullest.
