Charlie Played Cello / Bio

"A mix of 90s alternative, classic rock, new wave and power pop with an old-school surf throwback. Think Weezer, The Cars and Tom Petty with a touch of The Beach Boys"

"Infections melodies and catchy rhythms-- it's a 90s alternative sound with an almost surf like tinge."

Charlie Played Cello* (or CPC as their fans say) is a Los Angeles-based rock band about to break onto the national stage. The band has been together just a short time but the accomplishments are substantial: a contract with New Deal Entertainment (a label associated with the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team), distribution INgrooves/Fontana Distribution company, two songs written for CPC by Brian Holland, and tracks engineered and mixed by Grammy-award winner David Bianco (at his studio in North Hollywood) and produced by Davey Meshell. The band has developed a loyal following that has seen them perform at classic L.A. venues such as the House of Blues and Viper Room.
