What made you move to Atlanta, GA over LA or NYC?
Well, I originally move to Atlanta to attend undergrad at Morehouse College; and I’ve been here ever since. However, I would love to move to Los Angeles, New York City or London, when the time is right.
Who inspired your choices in fashion? Your look is closely related to Lady GAGA, Elton John in his early days, Diana Ross & even Cher do you agree?
Yes, I feel like I have a relatable style to celebrities who have a high end avant-garde style. However, my mother is someone who has always inspired me through her fashion; she dared to be different and wasn’t afraid to take risks when it came to fashion.
Tell us about your music what genre would you classify it as?
My music is in its own lane honestly, I haven’t really classified it in a genre a little hip hop, pop, psychedelic (Jimmy Hendrix). My music really is just created to inspire and open people minds to the world around them
Who is CharlieXile?
Charlie Xile stands for killing close minds. He’s bold, he’s strong, he’s himself. There are people out here in the world also like Charlie Xile but may not have all the courage to come outside and live proud, so he’s here to create a safer and easier pathway for them to live and express themselves with no fear.
Besides music what else is CharlieXile good at?
CharlieXile is good at fashion design, poetry, modeling, I also play the clarinet and a dope photographer
What’s one thing you want your fans to know about you?
I’m a free spirit it took me so long to get to this point of not caring about what people say or do. My peace being in my own lane is what makes me happy at the end of the day. A free mind is a free spirit and with those qualities I can create on a different level and embrace happiness.
