If you ask Mike Charette what style of music he is, he will tell you his genre is music. “I’m soul, pop, rock, funk, blues or jazz all at once. My voice is my instrument brought to life by the emotions and lyrics I have written”.
The singer/songwriter from Sudbury, Ontario has been playing music for the past 15 years and just released his first studio album called This Is Me, and it truly is him in all his styles and sounds, with a voice that needs to be heard.
We caught up with the soft-spoken Charette at the White Water Galery in North Bay, his first of three CD release parties to celebrate this album. The next party will be held at Little Montreal in Sudbury on Friday Novemeber 17th and Simcoe Street Theatre in Collingwood on Saturday December 2nd.
In this interview, Charette talks about his background, the making of the album and more. Please view and have a listen to his music. You won’t be disappointed!

Hello everyone! My name is Linda and I have been a fan of Canadian Music for as long as I can remember. That counts for way too many decades than I want to admit to! I have three primary passions in my life, music, photography and writing. When I can combine them all, I feel I am right where I should be. Though I can appreciate all genres of music, my particular favourite is Country. Canadian Country is moving in leaps and bounds. I love how it is progressing and I’m thankful that I can be a small part of it.
