We Are Charlie (WAC) are an indie rock trio from Pretoria, South Africa. The band formed in late 2013.  Dylan Christie (voice and guitar) met Wesley Reinecke (drums) in high school. The two have been making music together since 2008. After a few years exploration in the music scene they found a home in the indie sound and WAC was conceived.  Rudolph de Villiers (bass) joined the band in mid-2016 to further-enrich the sound.

We Are Charlie are energetic and up-beat. Their style is one which constants highly distinct guitar melodies, drums and bass  provide a solid, groovy yet functional backbone. These instrumental elements become a foundation over which WAC convey their honest (and a little complex) message and approach to lyrics.

The Band as a whole are influenced by Artists like The Pixies, Modest Mouse, The Strokes, Fidlar, Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins etc.

We Are Charlie have been privileged to open for and played along side bands such as: Matthew Mole, PHFat, Jeremy Loops, Francois van Coke, aKing, Shortstraw, Desmond & the Tutus, Civil Twilight (USA), Sawagi (Japan), Xavier Rudd (Australia) and many, many more.


We Are Charlie music is available to purchase or stream from iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify, Shazam, Amazon Music, Google Play
