Charlie Chadwick

The story of The Brave begins in 2014 when we realized how stressful flying with a bass was. We immediately commissioned Charlie Chadwick to build us a bass that folds into an airline friendly case. We also just finished recording an album with our first bass but the first time we saw and heard Canard (basses must have names), our plans changed. We couldn’t release the original recordings and know that our new instrument’s sound was so much more rich and beautiful. The three-year delay in us releasing music is clearly Charlie’s fault but he also deserves credit for sculpting a gorgeous masterpiece. He frequently called us to discuss our options and customized it to be perfect for what we do. Since then, he’s continued to support us, and The Brave wouldn’t have happened without him. Thank you, Charlie.
