About Overstood

A family affair plus one, the Thompson's have been playing music for most of their lives. Charlie Thompson, formerly of The Parrots, and Flyin' Blind, is revered among local musicians. He has played in bands that opened for The Allman Brothers, The Byrds, The Marshall Tucker Band, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

Charlie's oldest son, Cortie, is an established singer/songwriter as well. He has written music for the past ten years and has played with bands in Charleston, Clemson, and Big Sky, Montana. His brother Matt Thompson, an experienced surfer who frequents the warm waters of Costa Rica, developed much of his unique songwriting style by combining his love of reggae and funk with his ‘rock and roll’ genes. Evan Bivans, formerly of Jump Little Children has joined the band on drums. Evan's wide musical background and experience are a great addition.

Overstood is entertaining packed crowds at local venues such as Johnson’s, O’Malley’s, Henry’s - Mount Pleasant. Their CD is flying off the shelves – come out and meet the band in person and experience some of Charleston finest music!
