Charley Roy was born and raised in New Jersey. Despite growing up with no musical background, Charley became enamored of rapping after a chance occurrence led to him being offered to his cousin’s place during a studio session. Like many up and coming artists, Charley pours his heart and soul into his lyrics, using them to send messages to his fans. The content of his lyrics is mainly autobiographical, drawing on real-life experiences but told from a perspective that would allow anyone to relate. Charley has done many performances and even headlined his own showcase featuring various artists including singers, rappers, and poets. Here is his story.

Sherman showcase event 

What’s your recent song and what inspired you to write it ?

It’s called lessons, just hearing the beat it sounded real somber but hopeful. This past year has been a rollercoaster for me so just hearing that sound it kinda took over.

What job do you think you would be doing now if you didn’t have your music career?

I cannot see myself not making music, career wise Im in the process of obtaining a degree in psychology. I would like to work with kids I actually coach kids in basketball. I coach kids in a clinic called Pocono youth stars.

If you were to give someone advice on life or how to start songwriting, what would you say?

Why did you decide to become a rapper and why?

I didn’t really have someone to inspire me to want to do It, and the music was really terrible and going south. So, one day I was like let me try it.It was actually my cousin who was trying to rap.  I would go with him and one day he did not show up and I was already in the studio. I was with this other dude that invited us there so we just did a song called “I don’t live in a dream.” I loved the beat and got addicted to it, felt as though this was something I needed to do and from their I started rapping.

What are the main inspirations for the lyrics you write?

Being truthful, I always say what I have to say, but I try doing it in the cleverest way as possible. Saying the same thing using different words. Everything that is happening in my life is what I talk about.

How does music make you feel ?

Musics like someone you have history with someone you really love, but hate at the same time. It’s stressful, and you put a lot into it. As an artist you cut yourself open for people to see, and you use that same music to heal yourself in the same process.,
