Chuck started taking piano lessons when he was four, and wrote his first song shortly thereafter. His music career, however, began much later, when he attended Yale University and took to performing his songs publicly. His unique songwriting, piano stylings, and impressive vocals found a receptive audience among students and locals alike, and he quickly became a regular on the Connecticut coffeeshop and music festival circuit. In 2003, Chuck recruited a full-time band, and recorded his debut album, the self-produced "People, Places, and Flings", over a period of six months at studios in both Connecticut and New York. With an impressive array of backup musicians and vocalists, "People, Places, and Flings" showcases Chuck''s engaging voice and playing style, as well as his striking talent for melody and lyric-writing. His music is sometimes compared to Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright, and Billy Joel, but has a sound and insight all its own. Chuck currently resides in Seattle, where he performs regularly.
