KING CHARLES (born Charles Costa in 1984) is an English indie singer-songwriter from West London. Charles has been described as “an epic guy who is too cool for charts.”

He plays the guitar, piano, and cello. Charles is also a classically trained singer and performed in his school's choir. Having been writing music from the age of seventeen, in 2009, he won the International Songwriting Competition by unanimous vote.

After studying Sociology for two semesters at Durham University, Charles returned to London in 2007, adopted the pseudonym King Charles, and formed a band, Adventure Playground, which toured with Laura Marling and Noah and the Whale before disbanding in 2008.

He has also gone on tour around the UK and The United States alongside Mumford and Sons. After signing a global contract with Universal Republic through his UK independent label Mi7 Records, King Charles recorded his debut album, Loveblood, in Hollywood, CA.
It is set to be released 7th May 2012. (Wikipedia)
