Charlie Apicella is an Eastman Guitars Featured Artist.

“Apicella is a lithe, swinging guitarist with an affinity for the contrasting styles of both Grant Green and Wes Montgomery…An all-around impressive debut by a guitarist of substance.”

Mark Gardner, Jazz Journal

“Apicella is a no-nonsense player of unquestioned chops and whose soul drips from each note… This is “organic” music, and Apicella is an exciting young player.”

John Heidt, Vintage Guitar Magazine

“What I love about Iron City’s CD is the tight ensemble playing and well crafted solos. As a member of Grover Washington Jr.’s band we had the nickname “The Locksmiths;” we were so tight, yet responsive to the soloist. I feel Charlie’s compositions capture the flavor of our music in the 1970s where you put the groove first.”John Blake Jr. Violinist and recording artist with McCoy Tyner and Grover Washington Jr.
