Music has inspired Char Avell from a tender age. Much like his mentor, Mumzy Stranger, he has grown up in a Bangladeshi household in the heart of East London. His path to a musical career, has come from the harsh realities that surrounded him constantly and the major setbacks he had in his life, such as being homeless at a certain point in time and losing his father at a young age did not stop him from fulfilling his long lived passion of becoming a singer. The pain and suffering in his life made him stronger and inspired him to start writing down his emotions lyrically and grow as an artist spiritually.
Char’s talent not only lies in writing heartfelt song lyrics but in his very unique smooth ‘RnB’ vocals. Mumzy Stranger discovered Char in his neighbourhood and took him under his musical wings, to mentor and assimilate his sounds with the culturally unique music that Mumzy had already cultivated and mastered.
