The short of it...
Charlotte Pike is a husband/wife duo rooted in Nashville, TN. Brent & Lauren Gafford are both Georgia natives who have since found their new home in Music City. Performing together since 2013, the two have naturally meshed their harmonies to create their own unique brand of original country music – a style that is undeniably commercial, yet retains the more organic sounds of the 90's Country music that served as an early influence. Although still fresh to the Nashville scene, Charlotte Pike is far from a new-comer on the stage, combining over 450 live performances to date. Aiming to add on to the recent songwriting success - including one Billboard #1 - the duo is headed back into the studio to record their sophomore release in the Spring of 2021.
& the long...
Brent and Lauren met in 2013 during their senior years of college at UGA and Auburn University, respectively. Brent had already been gigging as the front-man for his band, the Brent Gafford Band based in Athens, Ga. The two instantly hit it off and thus a romantic and a musical bond pursued. Lauren soon became a full-time member of the band, adding a new layer of harmony as the band settled into the Atlanta music scene. Fast-forward eight years and 450+ live shows later, The band has landed opening slots for several national acts in Michael Ray, Corey Smith, Deana Carter, Mitchell Tenpenny, Josh Thompson, Jon Langston, and Muscadine Bloodline to name a few.
Brent and Lauren have slowly worked towards transitioning into a duo over the last four years in Nashville. The two wed in April of 2018, so the transition to a duo has been a natural progression. With so much experience performing together, they have naturally meshed their harmonies to create their own brand of original country music – a sound that is undeniably commercial, yet doesn’t undermine the organic twang of the 90’s music that has served as an early influence. Brent and Lauren are now ready to make their mark as a duo, Charlotte Pike – a name that commemorates the place both literally (residing off Charlotte Pike in West Nashville) and figuratively - representing where they are now in their pursuit of good songs in Nashville, Tennessee. The duo released their first debut singles in late 2019 and 2020. Charlotte Pike is set to record their sophomore release in the Fall of 2021.
