Bio

Charlie Waldren is a Sydney based solo artist creating indie-dance & sweet-tender moments under the moniker Poolroom. Newest single "Find A Way" is the next offering from his forthcoming new EP “mood~ring” and continues the good times with a wink & a nod to Prince &.

" 'Find A Way' is a conversation with a misogynist. I wrote it whilst reading 'Sexual Politics' by Kate Millet. The prominence of misogyny & sexism that goes unchecked in everyday life is bewildering. The patriarchy benefits & privileges cis men like myself & we have the responsibility to dismantle it. That said, no one deserves a medal just for treating people equally. The song invites misogynists to listen, learn & love."

Poolroom.’s forthcoming EP is a 5-track collection of cute upbeat tunes set to the theme of colours. Entitled “mood~ring” the music, performance, and visual aesthetic of the EP are linked in tone & vibe showcasing Waldren’s consistency in communicating his art to adoring audiences.
