Some were born with the natural inclination to produce rhythm and sound, while others, hone their masterful artistry through the gift of formal study and discipline. Chuckey Robinson hails from the blessing of both worlds. Born with the gift to instinctively hear and create unique sounds, Chuckey polished this masterful gift while attending North Carolina Central University, where he studied music and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music Industry and Jazz Studies as well as a Master’s degree in Jazz Composition. His music has also been featured on networks such as The Word Network and ESPN, to name a few.
For several years, he traveled as minister of music with renown speaker and best-selling author Bishop George Bloomer. During this time, his gift made room for him to assist in live tapings and event-planning with Christian Networks such as TBN, The Word Network, and INSP. His musical prowess has afforded him the opportunity to travel and serve with many other legendary artists and renown ministries: Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Paul Morton, Marvin Sapp, Kim Burrell, Thomas Clay, Jessica Reedy, Judith McAllister, Maurette Brown Clark, LeJuene Thompson, Hezekiah Walker, Dorinda Clark Cole, and more. He has also had the pleasure of playing alongside artists such as Mulgrew Miller, Roy Hargrove, Branford Marsalis, Joey Calderazzo, Brian Blade, Cyrus Chestnut, Nnenna Freelon, and René Marie.
Chuckey learned to play the piano and drums at three years old. When asked to describe his passion for music, he promptly responds, “Music is artistic air—a necessity for inhaling our daily dose of positivity and productive living.” His unique style of music defies the norm, banishes boundaries, and dares to cross genres to unveil the soulful, sophisticated, and intentional fusion that reigns supreme to the signature of his inimitable musicality and sound.
His innate business acumen inspired him to create the production company, C.E.R.J., providing another avenue to allow others to also delve into their creative gifts to create the untarnished message of positivity through sound.
