Charlie Simpson - Young Pilgrim Cover

Charlie Simpson steps out on his own...

With Fightstar on an extended break, Simmo’s taken the opportunity to release a collection of his own personal musings that steps away from the social commentary of his day job, and delves deeper into his emotional psyche. With a more stripped-back acoustic vibe (although still a full-band effort), ‘Young Pilgrim’ is a hauntingly beautiful affair, that paints Simpson as a jack of all trades; a songwriter capable of tugging your heartstrings and not just a frontman. The highlights come where Charlie’s voice is at it’s softest, as in ‘Parachutes’ and ‘Thorns’, but overall, this a solid, refreshing and somewhat unexpected output from Simpson.
