Charlie Farley’s music may be described as Alternative Country, but his home and inspiration for the music he writes are the backwoods and dirt roads of DeQueen, AR. His music resonates with his fans, as it’s lyrically diverse but always portrays real life. “A song should hit you in one way or another. Party hard, love harder. There isn’t a middle ground with my music,”
In December of 2017 Charlie reached an extraordinary milestone with one million streams a month on Pandora’s platform. Touring the last year with a dynamic live show that is authentic and gritty, the numbers are reflective of his growth as an artist. Charlie Farley’s artistic journey seems to have no middle ground as well, considering it was a fluke submission over the internet that actually landed him a contract with Nashville’s Average Joes Entertainment. The Debut CD “Hog Heaven” released in 2014, produced the hit song “Stabbin Cabin” which was quickly picked up by the CMT TV Series, “Party Down South”. Soon the industry was buzzing about Charlie Farley and his new breed of "country rap", and then... he left. Zero to turbo had left Charlie with no balance. Concerned about his children, his family, and not being able to process the intensity or speed of the growing spotlight he decided to retire from the music industry. While home life became normal again, the desire to create and grow as an artist with no outlet had flipped the switch in the opposite direction. Again, no balance. Coming to terms with the need to be present in both family and music, Charlie decided to make his career fit his life and found the right balance.
The 2015 Sophomore CD, “All I’ve Been Through” proved his songwriting ability by being chosen for the Nashville YouTube Spotlight Series with his song, “Concrete Dreams”. In addition to writing hits for artists such as Colt Ford, Charlie co wrote the song, “Reload” which was curated for the televised event series UFC Tonight. Currently his song “Exposed and Get Exposed” is on The Outdoor Channel’s hit fishing series, The Timmy Horton Show. As a versatile performer he created the Bonfire Party; an intimate acoustic based show, as well as a full throttle five piece band show. This variety of performance offerings enabled him to break through as a true touring artist in 2017. True to form, Charlie is releasing a dual single; Drinks And Dreams, Feeling Like I Love It, " Perhaps a little unconventional, but to Charlie it makes total sense. "The music industry changes everyday, it will make you crazy trying to keep up with trends and changes. I just listen to the fans and how they want the music delivered." With 150m+ aggregate streams and over 335,000 monthly listeners across digital radio platforms, Charlie's fans are most definitely listening. Farley’s unique style of country is definitely on the rise; and with the new upcoming CD release in late spring, there is no limit as to what 2018 will bring this very talented and centered artist.
