Glasgow’s Hometown Promotion Sound System crew have booked Southend’s rising star of the reggae scene, Charlie P, to headline their next date.

Still in his early 20s, Charlie P started doing talent shows and gigs when he was still in short trousers and has clearly honed his talent.  His 2014 single for Glasgow’s Scotch Bonnet label, Nice It Up, has now had over 1 million hits on YouTube.

Check out the documentary clip above for a full Charlie P story and grab a ticket for the gig here.  Support on the night from Tom Spirals (live) and the Hometown crew.
