CharlesTheFirst's Ascent Tour

The prodigious moniker of young music maker Charles Ingalls, CharlestheFirst is a Sierra Nevada-based producer who fuses the nature-inspired poetry of his mountainous hometown with mesmeric, sweeping music production. Telling stories through his compositions, his chilled out beats contain elements of hip hop as well as experimental electronica, airing on the side of the psychedelic. 

Released in late 2018, Ingalls' latest offering is The Ascent, an album that conjures the summit from both above and below an imaginary bass camp, a narrative driven by an ascent into uncharted terrain. Filled with his trademark foley samples and ambience, his new material brings nature back to his fluid basslines  and ethereal synths, forming a compelling soundscape that takes the listener far beyond the dance floor and on a beautiful, humbling, unpredictable and mysterious journey. Be apart of this grand sound adventure when Ingalls brings The Ascent to ears across the US on tour.
