Based around the songs/guitar of Piers Faccini and the words of Francesca Beard, the band was characterised by the interplay between their alternating voices augmentated by the soundscapes, textures and rhythms of guitarist Lucas Suarez and the percussion/electronics of Frank Byng.

Together Charley Marlowe produce an imaginative mix of soulful lyrics, humorous pop and sensual world beat sounds. Their music was once described as a beautiful mutant, fusing folk to hop, avant to pop, sung to spoken word.

“Quirky performance poet Francesca Beard fronts this bluesy, rootsy band, contributing lyrics that linger and shivering vocals which melt into guitarist Piers Faccini’s deeper tones. The group’s heroes are Serge Gainsbourg, Nick Drake and Leadbelly, but their sound is their own and utterly magical at that.”
—Evening Standard

“Charley Marlowe are one of the most refreshing and captivating live acts I have ever experienced. A perfect fusion of compelling poetry, infectious melodies and bizarre noises, all delivered with perfect taste and sensitivity.”
