Charley's is my kind of place - Willie Nelson


Take a step back in time and find true Aloha.

Charley's Restaurant and Saloon, established in 1969, is an award-winning, Maui Landmark.

Charley’s is a reflection of the culture of Maui, the essence of its foods, and the warm spirit of entertainment and Aloha.

We welcome you to a favorite community gathering place and celebrated destination spot.

Charley’s is located in Paia, Maui, Hawaii; a former sugar-plantation town that serves as the crossroads to the North Shore of Maui.  Known for its large waves and ideal conditions for surfing, windsurfing and kite-boarding, the North Shore of Maui is a water playground. The North Shore is also known for its rainforests, waterfalls and hiking.

Paia maintains its small-town, old Hawaii charm, and is now a bustling destination with restaurants, bars, shopping, coffee and gelato.

At Charley’s you never know who might be sitting next to you. It’s long been a favorite hang-out for surfers, adventurers, writers, hippies, rock stars, artists, business leaders, celebrities, and all types, looking to get away and find the ultimate in Maui hospitality.

Matt Warren first debuted into the Nashville music scene as an artist in 1996 when he & his band, 40 East, signed a deal with the Nashville booking agency Crescent Moon Talent & began a fall tour of the southeast region. The band broke up before they could make a record.  His next endeavor as an artist was with his band Papa Joe in 2001. They released their debut record, "Storybook Ending", on Warren's own independent record label Stonewall Music. 

In many more ways than one, Matt Warren is a rarity amongst all of the transplants working & writing on the Row that he calls co-writers, comrades, musical peers & partners in crime, more specifically, in that he is 1 of maybe 10 current artists & writers who are true locals & Tennessee natives, born & raised in Nashville.  In 2002, Warren made his professional staff writer debut onto Music Row's elite published songwriter scene when he signed his first deal with House of Fame & the Muscle Shoals, Alabama music icon & legendary Fame Studios founder, record producer, Grammy winner & Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Rick Hall & his two sons Mark & Rodney.  Matt's first cut as a House of Fame writer was “Puttin’ Memories Away”, co-written with Gary Allan & featured on the Oprah Winfrey show when Gary was her guest.  That song was the beginning to a brutal yet beautiful journey down a long & treacherous road to the amazing place he is now.  Twelve years later, Warren has securely established himself firmly into the music scene as an extremely energetic & talented artist & a successful, well known & well respected award winning hit songwriter.  He has had one song recorded by Americana music icon Jim Lauderdale & one song recorded by Pittsburgh blue collar rock legend & Bruce Springsteen co-writer & band mate, Joe Grushecky.  Warren is the recipient of 2 ASCAP Awards for most spins in a year (2009, 2013).  In 2009, he won the ASCAP award for the top 10 hit "Learning How to Bend".  In 2013, he co-wrote the ASCAP award winning #1 smash hit & all-time biggest selling Gary Allan single ever, "Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain)", which was also nominated for the 2014 ACM song of the year award.  He has 6 songs on the brand new Gary Allan record soon to be released.  He also co-wrote the lead single for Robert Randolph & The Family Band’s 2017 hit single “Love Let It Do What It Do” with Robert Randolph, Chris Gelbuda & Patrick Davis, which was a 2018 Grammy nominated record for Robert in the “Blues record of the year” nominee. 

Warren made a critically acclaimed record "Self- titled" which was released in the Spring of 2014 on his own independent record label United We Jam Records with his business partners Daniel Loper & Alan Bradshaw.  "Self-titled" is produced by Grammy, CMA & ACM multi-award winning musician & artist Tom Bukovac.  It was tracked by Grammy Award winning engineer/producer Justin Niebank & mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer/producer Mills Logan.  Matt’s band features Steve Gorman on drums (The Black Crowes, Trigger Hippy), Audley Freed on guitar (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow), Tom Bukovac on guitar, slide guitar & keys (John Fogerty, Trigger Hippy), Michael Rhodes on bass (Ray Charles, Willie Nelson), John Lancaster on piano, Rhodes & Nord (Gary Allan, Will Hoge), Johnny Neel on Hammond B-3 & piano (Allman Brothers, Blue Floyd), Nick Buda on drums (Col. Bruce Hampton & The Code Talkers, Hank Williams Jr.), Jedd Hughes on guitar & beer (Rodney Crowell & Emmylou Harris) & Pat McLaughlin on guitar (Johnny Cash, The Subdudes).  The record features vocalists Hillary Lindsey, Sarah Buxton, Pat McLaughlin, Carey Ott & Bonnie Bishop on back-up vocals.  "Self-titled" is out now & available for purchase.

As of April 2019, he is currently working on his new project with his brand new band Goodfoot.  Music and tour coming to the masses in the very near future.
