Family Ties, Charles Wesley Godwin's third album and first with Big Loud, is a portrait of home, of relationships, of lessons learned and lived. Perhaps most exciting, the 19-track release showcases a tunesmith at the peak of his powers - melding melody with memories, workmanship with wisdom. 

Godwin demo'ed the songs that would become Family Ties on a Tascam 4-track (thanks to his love for Bruce Springsteen's seminal Nebraska) and then recorded them at one of his dream studios, Echo Mountain in Asheville, North Carolina, before he signed a record deal.

He recorded the album with his long-time band, the Allegheny High, and long-time producer, Allegheny High guitarist Al Torrence.
