English musician Charlie Simpson has a strong musical pedigree dating back to one of his mother's ancestors, Sir William Sterndale Bennett (1816-1875), who was a distinguished classical music composer of the romantic school. Charlie first shot to fame as the lead guitarist of Busted, who were one of the most popular pop acts in the UK during the mid 2000s. Unfulfilled by the pop star lifestyle, Simpson formed the rock act Fightstar in 2003. Following three studio albums, Fightstar initiated an extended hiatus in 2010, allowing Simpson to focus on his solo career. This is the lead single from his debut solo full-length album entitled Young Pilgrim, which was released on August 15, 2011. An acoustic-driven record, it was heavily influenced by the 1970s Americana music Simpson listened to growing up.
