Chuck SJ is as in your face as anyone you have ever heard, continually challenging views on equality, sexism, sexuality, capitalism, the family unit and anything else they wants to address..."-

Brutally honest well thought out lyrics and fingers that shoot around the fretboard with incredible ease".

Chuck is a Queer Folk Punk DIY Musician hailing from Brighton, UK. Although their roots lie in folk punk, Chucks guitar playing extends far beyond the contemporary and expected style of an acoustic guitarist. 
 

Chuck SJ has been a staple of the Brighton music scene as both a performer and promoter as well as the indomitable lead singer of revolutionary punk band Echo & The Beats. June '16 - June '17 Chuck wrote a song a day for a year, releasing the tracks to subscribers each month. In September '17 Chuck successfully raised the funds to record XII. A double disc 50 track album recorded entirely live in one day at AudioBeach Studios. Chuck has recently started a new two piece queercore trans band called BYENARY 

Being a visible supporter of gender equality and an active member in the LGBTQ+ community, Chuck wears their identity proudly, on a mission to give people the representation that those before us never had. Chuck is currently working on a new solo album exploring their journey as neurodivergent transgender person.

People can often be subject to judgement and prejudice once they outwardly speak out against the heteronormative society that has been built for us. Once we seek others that we can actually relate too, we are often accused of putting ourselves in a box. For me, it is the opposite. I feel more free than I have ever felt in my life. For me, Non-Binary isn't a label I have decided to start using, it's a means for freedom that I never had until I discovered it. Using Queer hashtags and going to queer events isn't an attempt to create a division. It is a means to feel like a human amongst humans. Those with do not have to worry about such a concept, should never take someone else's longing for freedom as a personal matter.
