Charles the Emperor’s “Food Fight” recording is about the transition from child to adulthood. Everyone is questioning what their future looks like, and whether they admit it or not, things are not the same as they used to be.
Combining elements of Electronic, Alternative, and Indie music, the up and coming producer/songwriter known as Charles the Emperor is a genre defying force to be reckoned with. Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, Charlies sound is as diverse as his surroundings.
Charlie started his music career at the young age of 14. Sampling different environments and instruments using his Iphone, Zoom Field Recorder, and Ableton, he began uploading various songs to soundcloud in 2014. It wasn’t until 2019 that the pieces of the puzzle really fit together as he premiered his own Vocals on his latest single titled “Food Fight”. Now at Age 19, he feels his identity is undoubtedly his own. Inspired by the individualistic elements that make up who Charlie is, and the environment around him, he has truly found his sound.
Charlie’s Instagram/IGTV series entitled “Saturday Sounds” in which he creates snippets of songs by recording various things in his surroundings, has become a foundational part of how he approaches music. The series is posted weekly and provides Charlie’s audience with a small but well received amount of consistent content. “Food Fight” for example, was created entirely with sounds recorded from his bathroom.
As Charlie continues to grow and evolve, he strives to bring his listeners a thoughtful, cinematic and impactful experience. His first Single off of his Debut EP “Food Fight” Entitled “Food Fight”, holds a nostalgic light atmosphere that is energetic and exciting for the listener. With his follow up single “Lunch Time” set for release January 26th 2020, and the rest of his EP following shortly after, he hopes to envelope much of the same energy.
