Pop | Australia


Having released three singles over the last 18 months, ‘Hard For Me’, ‘Arizona’ and ‘I Suck At Being Lonely’ – all of which have accumulated 7 million combined streams and the last of which earned her a Top 4 positioning at Eurovision Australia Decides in 2022, Sydney based pop chanteuse, Charley released her debut EP 'TIMEBOMBS' in June 2023, which earned her her debut on the ARIA charts.

Music has always been a source of empowerment for Charley. Growing up in a family of musicians, she gravitated towards performing and song writing as an outlet of self-expression, even starting a band with her cousins while in high school. Charley’s fascination with song writing continued solo, evolving into a therapeutic, cathartic outlet, as she grew up and took on new experiences. Her first major heart break encouraged her to take song writing more seriously, and since then, it has been full steam ahead.

Charley’s travelled to Nashville and Los Angeles to collaborate with international writers, made her live debut supporting artists such as Stephen Sanchez, CXLOE, May-A and Rebecca Black, performed at events including Isol-Aid Festival, and had her debut single - ‘Hard For Me’ - attract attention on streaming, radio and online, including coveted support from Spotify, Apple Music, Side Note, NME, Pilerats, Life Without Andy and more.

Recently Charley was awarded the AMPAL Emerging Songwriter Prize in the APRA AMCOS 2022 Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition.
