Charliepapa was formed in Merida, Venezuela in 2001 by Mattia Medina (lead vocals, guitar), Osheye Rebolledo (bass guitar), Felix Hoffmann (drums) and Jonathan Bellomo (guitar).
The band has three studio albums: Quinta Giuliana (2008), 20.000 Leguas Cuadrilateras (2011) and Y/O (2015). Their music has been described as intuitive pop/rock with potent melodies and sincere lyrics.
The band was named after the acronyms “C” and “P” from the nautical phonetic alphabet which means “I am proceeding to your assistance” as response to the “S.O.S.” distress call.
Currently Charliepapa is promoting their third studio Album Y/O produced by Carlos Imperatori (Los Fabulosos Cadillacs), Rudy Pagliuca (La vida Boheme) and Hector Castillo (Roger Waters, Beck, Gustavo Cerati). Y/O was doubled nominated to the 2015 Latin Grammy Awards.
