Charlee Bravo, originally from Detroit,Michigan but lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for 15 years He started his musical career there by the age of 18.
His name "Charlee Bravo '' actually came about from just laying out and thinking. His real name is Chris Brown. He really wanted to keep my initial CB.
“I knew I couldn't use that name as an artist…after I tried the names Cystyle and Chris Laron. I came up with Charlee B... with the double E to make it more unique.”
Right before he recorded his first Album ‘Over the Top’… the Bravo actually came from a fan at a show of his.
“When I finished my set a fan screamed out'' Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Right then and there Charlee Bravo was born. “
Charlee’s music aims to say ‘I will be different’.
He wants to make his own wave and not follow the crowd. Versatility and the ability to grow and connect with people on an energetic and mental level is his top focus.
“I actively email, network at events, and of course on social media. I'm really big on street promo and connecting with people in public.I ask questions and I'm not afraid to ask who the biggest whale is in the room so I can connect with them and tell them what I'm looking for and what I need.”
His number one goal is to become a superstar in the music game and I mean number 1. But he also plans to own his own label and inspire other artists to perform at their full potential and become an inspiration not only in music but in overall life worldwide.
“I literally do this for me. I wake up and I automatically have this drive to be seen and to just put my artistry in the world. I want to show people it's ok to be you and express yourself in the way you feel is comfortable for you, not instagram, a label, family, friends, etc.”
One person that brings great influence on his music is Lil Wayne. From rap to rock it's been nothing but growth and evolution as a person and music. At 39 years old Weezy is the only artist to truly evolve through every generation.
“He still has some of the best bars and styles I've heard even among the newer artists coming out. Weezy to this day keeps me on my toes and pushes me to be even better every project I push out.”
How do you Meditate?:
“Personally I go outside and stand in the sun...take in deep breaths. I soak in the rays and relax my mind and feel the peace and natural energy and vibes.”
If you could magically get rid of a bad habit, what would it be?
“Easy and self explanatory... Procrastination. It kills drive, energy, and all momentum. I would simply get rid of it.”
What was the first song you fell in love with?
“I would have to say my all time favorite song would be one of my own creations. My first Album Over the Top featured a song called Snapshots. The hook goes "Take a snapshot save all your memories of me". This song was the first song I created and knew I could absolutely be a star in the music field. I sat in my car with the A/c on and soaked up this melodic beat and began writing straight from my heart...I spoke about how I felt at that moment about everyone around me, my musical situation and my one wish in this world, for those around me not to forget me and to save me in your mind. I was maybe in the car for 15 mins and I was so intrigued that the entire song was written... I was in absolute shock. I wrote this beautiful piece as a beginner which when I listen today it still impresses me. This was 2014.”
This isn't a shy profession and networking is key.
He also throws his own events and showcases to further spread the attention with other artists.
“I'm willing to talk to and work with who I need to so that I can continue to create opportunities for myself, while others are coming to me.”
