Q So, who exactly is Charlie Hole? A I’m a singer/songwriter from Bournemouth. Q In your eyes, what makes a good songwriter? A I think honesty is important: honesty, integrity and truth. People can see straight through a dishonest songwriter. If you tell the truth through your music, I don’t think you can go far wrong. It’s about making a connection with the listener, making them feel like they can relate, as though you’re singing about their life, and not your own.
