A native of West Virginia, Charles Wesley Godwin makes cinematic country-folk that’s as gorgeous and ruggedly raw as his homeland. It’s Appalachian Americana, rooted in Godwin’s sharp songwriting and backwoods baritone. With 2021s How the Mighty Fall, he trades the autobiographical lyrics that filledSeneca— his acclaimed debut, released in 2019 and celebrated by everyone fromRolling Stone to NPR’sMountain Stage— for a collection of character-driven songs about mortality, hope, and regret, putting an intimate spin on the universal concerns we all share.
