On July 6, 2009, Charlee Drew debuted on Phonezoo.com. Nearly 3,000 ringtone downloads in three days; contributing to the massive ensemble of 70,000+ ringtones already available on Phonezoo.com, the singer put up his three most popular songs: “Sugar Rush”, “Do You Love Me”, and “Run Away” respectively.
“When your phone rings, I sing!” the singer rejoiced.
With over 25,000 total ringtone downloads on Phonezoo.com, Charlee can add the brood of Phonezoo users to his U.S. fan-base. This English guitar-playing, pianist is an unsigned singer and songwriter but he manages to have thousands of visits to his websites from all over the world for his put-it-on-repeat worthy music. Achieving over 250,000+ music plays on his website CharleeDrew.com, his original track “Sugar Rush” has recently been added to the MySpace online series soundtrack of “Freak”. It’s no surprise that he was crowned “the U.K.’s new hottest unsigned singer” by various online blogs.
“Uploading my tracks to Phonezoo has really helped me gain some loyal followers over the big ocean. It is amazing yet bizarre to think that so many people are walking around with my tracks on their phone” commented Charlee. “I feel warm and tingly inside, and a little bit excited that I am the first international feature artist on Phonezoo!”
