Charley Coin is the R&B pseudonym of Will Brown, a Temple Media Studies and Production major. Will has been playing drums since he was 5 and has been writing songs since his early teen years. His passion for playing and writing music led him to start producing in high school and college. With a focus on 90s-inspired R&B, Will created Charley Coin.

Charley recently released a new demo for his song “Distractions.” The track features Charley playing all instruments and crooning a beautiful melody. The drums were tracked to tape, and that warmth comes through the song with soft guitar leads and down-tempo pulsing rhythms. Reminiscent of Toro Y Moi and John Mayer, “Distractions” is the perfect love song for a cozy late-fall day. Listen to the tune below, and follow Charley Coin on Twitter for updates on new music he is working on.
