Skyline Sessions

Live In Studio: Charlie Faye & The Fayettes

Austin-based band contemporizes the ’60s girl-group sound.

Charlie Faye & The Fayettes merge ’60s soul-pop in the vein of girl-groups like the Ronettes and the Shirelles with a contemporary sensibility. Usually backed by a full band, Faye and her Fayettes (Akina Adderley and BettySoo) used a recorded backing track played on a record player for their performance in our Geary Studio. They visited Houston Public Media while in town for a concert at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck.
