Charlie Tipton remembers the first time he picked up a guitar and his early years playing electric guitar and honing his craft as a songwriter as he learned the instrument. Now performing both as a solo artist and with a full band, Tipton is aiming to release an album later this year. Charlie Tipton visited the WYSO studios for an acoustic set and spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about developing his craft as a songwriter and the differences between performing solo and with a band.

What began as Tifani Tanaka and Kyle Melton experimenting with some demo recordings soon turned into a full-fledged band with Melton's King Elk bandmates, Tyler Bellingar and Andy Smith, filling out the remaining instrumentation. Now Dear Fawn is poised to release its debut EP, I Played the Queen, on Dayton-based Gas Daddy Go Records. The band visited the WYSO Studios to perform live and talk about finding their sound as a group and the recording process for I Played the Queen.
