Chuck Brodsky is a storyteller, a songwriter, a troubadour, a modern day bard. His wit and irony, down-to-earth warmth, and quirky, rootsy, finely crafted songs tell stories of oddball and underdog characters. His songs celebrate the goodness in people, the eccentric, the holy, the profound, the courageous, the inspiring, the beautiful. They poke fun at what needs poking and sometimes challenge what needs to be challenged. They’re sworn to tell the truth.

Over the past 25 years, Chuck has performed at festivals and in concerts all across the USA, Canada, Ireland, Denmark, England, Israel, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales, and the Shetland Islands of Scotland. He’s performed three times at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and 22 of his Baseball story songs have been enshrined in the Hall of Fame’s sound recording library.

Chuck and his songs have appeared in several films and on tv. His beloved Philadelphia Phillies featured an interview with him as well as his song “Whitey & Harry” in the documentary “Richie Ashburn: A Baseball Life.” The 2003 Sony Pictures release “Radio” included a cameo by Chuck as well as his closing title track. “Moe Berg: The Song” is featured in the PBS film “Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story” (2010). Kathy Mattea’s recording of his song “We Are Each Other’s Angels” is in the film “Dear Mr. Goodlife” (1998). “Blow ‘em Away” has been recorded by David Wilcox and many others, and also appears on the Christine Lavin produced “Laugh Tracks.”

Having received worldwide acclaim for his previous albums, Chuck’s 11th release “Tell Tale Heart” was self-produced, recorded in Asheville NC, and was among the top ten most played CDs on folk radio for all of 2015. Four of Chuck’s early CDs were produced in Atlanta by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, while four of his more recent CDs were produced in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, by J.P. Cormier. In March of 2018, Chuck released his latest album, “Them And Us.”

"He’s a storyteller in the grand tradition, and he’s skilled at setting those stories to appealing music. Like the most effective storytellers, Brodsky can make you laugh and pause to think at the same time."- MountainXpress

​"A quirky wit that takes you by surprise also leads him to write spectacular songs you aren't expecting."
- Asheville Citizen-Times

​“One of the finest singer-songwriters in America. There are a lot of good ones, but when it comes down to the really great ones it boils down to a select few - he’s one of them.”
-Larry Groce, Mountain Stage (National Public Radio)

"If the authors John Steinbeck and Flannery O’Connor had been musicians, they’d probably sound something like Chuck Brodsky.”
-John Sewell, Bristol Herald Courier, (Bristol, TN)
