Charles Costa’s recording story began in 2010 when a few months after a near-fatal skiing accident he won Grand Prize at the International Songwriting Competition for a piece called ‘Love Lust’.
Soon after he signed to Universal in America and relocated to LA where he made his debut album Love Blood with Matthew Wilder (No Doubt, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson). It was a remarkable time that produced a remarkable record, but it wasn’t true to Charles’ artistic roots, so he decided to leave his label and management to find out what was. The result is Gamble For A Rose, where his multi instrumental talent shines against riveting lyrical power. Produced by Marcus Mumford, the album is scheduled for release in the U.S. on January 22, 2016
