Consulting Services for the Independent Artist
Charlie Faye is a lifelong musician, songwriter, and recording artist, who has used her experience to help others move forward on their unique paths for over a decade. She carries a strong belief that when it comes to working with artists, nothing should ever be cookie-cutter, because every artist's strengths and goals are different. She began doing consulting for musicians in 2011, and specializes in project management for record releases.
Faye's strong management skills and innovative way of doing things were gained by her experience as an artist. She put herself on the map when she did a 10-month residency tour, living in a different city each month, putting together a band of local musicians, and recording a new song in each city. Later, her retro-soul girl group Charlie Faye & The Fayettes garnered major media attention and critical praise, rose into the top 20 on the Americana Radio Chart, and landed her a publishing deal with Rough Trade, getting her songs placed in TV shows like Riverdale and Girlboss. Faye also worked as a music supervisor on the independent film WINDSOR.
Faye has enjoyed speaking on and moderating panels at conferences like Folk Alliance International, AmericanaFest, Austin Songwriters Symposium, and The Annual Steinbeck Festival. She has also dedicated her time to working on projects related to affordable housing for artists. Charlie Faye has completed Austin Music Foundation's Leaders in Austin Music program, and sits on the Musician Advisory Panel for ATX Musicians.
