Charlie was a British rock band that was formed in 1971 by the singer/songwriter Terry Thomas. The group was most active as a recording unit from the mid-1970s to 1986. Charlie never charted in the UK but had four minor hits in the US: "Turning To You" (1977) "She Loves to Be In Love" (1978), "Killer Cut" (1979) and "It's Inevitable" (1983). The group's second album, No Second Chance, began the practice of having a photograph of a female model as the album's cover.

Charlie was a British rock band that was formed in 1971 by the singer/songwriter Terry Thomas. The group was most active as a recording unit from the mid-1970s to 1986.

Charlie started out from the ashes of the British band Axe (Terry Thomas, John Anderson, and Nicko McBrain). This version was short lived however, as Nicko left due to personality clashes (later to become the drummer for Iron Maiden) and Steve Gadd came in. They released their first album, Fantasy Girls, in 1976 to good response, but in reality, they were still searching for their sound. That all came together perfectly on the next album.
The group's second album, No Second Chance, began the practice of having a photograph of a female model as the album's cover. "Turning To You", from that album, was Charlie's first chart entry, peaking at #96 in the US. Thomas also produced the album, with John Anderson. All future Charlie releases were produced by Thomas, usually in association with one or more band members.
