Biography

A distinctly intriguing character, Chuck Mosley is singer and songwriter and a pioneer of the music genre commonly referred to as “Rap Rock”. Mosley was the original front-man of the groundbreaking and highly influential band Faith No More. He joined the band between 1984 and 1985 replacing Courtney Love (Hole) as lead singer. He was featured on their debut album We Care a Lot and on their second, Introduce Yourself.

After parting ways with Faith No More in 1988, Mosley went on to form a new band, Cement. Cement released two albums: Cement and Man with the Action Hair. Both albums were distributed by Dutch East India Trading. The band toured the United States and Europe promoting their music. Mosley also spent a brief stint as lead singer in revered hardcore punk band Bad Brains.

In the early 90’s, Mosley relocated to Cleveland, Ohio. He has spent the last several years writing and compiling new material while raising his two daughters Sophie and Erica.

Throughout his hiatus, Chuck has continued to be cited as a major influence by prevalent groups such as Korn, Limp Bizkit, and others. During this time he was featured in Billboard Magazine in spite of the fact that he hadn’t released a record in several years. His original recording of “We Care a Lot” remains as popular and relevant as ever. It is currently the theme song for the Discovery Channel show Dirty Jobs and it was featured prominently in the major motion picture Grosse Pointe Blank (starring John Cusack, Dan Aykroyd, and Minnie Driver).
