Chuck Fresh is the American-born son of Latvian immigrants. His parents. along with the rest of his melting pot neighborhood, all had strangely delightful accents, many of which Chuck emulated on the telephone and in drive-thrus to unsuspecting victims. Little did he know those characterizations would someday lead to a very lucrative career! Fresh became one of Philadelphia’s leading DJs. Today he's one of the top voiceover talents in the world, currently an announcer on Sirius XM radio. Fresh wrote the published books Party Games and How To Be A DJ, along with 15 other self-published titles based on his crazy experiences. Pursuing a career in marketing with Time-Life in the early 2000s, Fresh learned the music, book, and film business. He opened a marketing company which helped several folks achieve prominence in sales and performance. Fresh is the writer and producer of three indie music projects, so he’s well aware of indie music industry trends. Along with Felicia B, Fresh produces and co-hosts the hit podcast and national radio program, Indie Originals Live.
