My name is Carl Schonbeck and I'm a songwriter/composer with over 30 years of experience. My material combines the warmth, eclectic spirit and melodic innovation of classic rock, blues, soul and vintage soundtracks with today's rhythmic innovation and production values and I'm happy to say some of them have been featured on PBS, Fox's "The Wendy Williams Show" and HLM's "The Killer Truth" among others. I've also had the honour to collaborate, perform and/or record with luminaries such as Grammy-winning producer Scott Mathews, Huey Lewis & the News guitarist Stef Burns, Italian Rap-Rocker Achille Lauro and The Ensemble Symphony Orchestra. During 2020 I had the great pleasure of recording the album "60s & 70s Rock Revitalized" for the German BMG/Klanglobby production label with the production assistance of Martin Sponticcia.
My current and ongoing goal is to write songs that stand the test of time and stay true to the music I love.
