Meet the Authors



Founder, Editor-In-Chief

Based out of San Diego, CA, Charlie is a huge fan of both hip-hop and jazz. He typically focuses on his favorite records from Blue Note, CTI, Death Row and the Native Tongues collective. Music has been one of his biggest hobbies since the 7th grade, so he founded the Tenth Man in order to channel his passion and share it with an audience. He’s also an avid NBA fan, posting occasional player profiles, opinionated editorials and general thoughts on the upcoming seasons. In the long run, his biggest goal is to build his own personal version of “The Pyramid” – or an in-depth examination of personal favorites from each genre.

Feel free to message Charlie with any comments, concerns or questions regarding the site.

Michael has spent most of his life being engaged with music in any number of ways. Playing jazz piano, near-continuously looking for more music to discover, be it contemporary or classic, and writing are the three clearest connections. He is also passionate about design of all sorts, with a focus on architecture; politics, both past and present; and cultural criticism of all varieties. His favorite artists are The Necks, Nicolas Jaar, and Joanna Newsom.
