My name is Carl Schonbeck and I'm a singer-songwriter/composer/guitarist with over 25 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. My songs & music have been featured on Fox's "The Wendy Williams Show", Italy Mediaset's popular "Le Iene" TV series, Oxygen's "Bad Girl's Club", TruTv's "Container Wars" and "Storage Hunters", the independent film "It's Late" as well as in various television programs in Australia and the Far East. I'm also the lead guitarist for Mary & the Quants, one of Italy's leading Sixties cover bands and have had the pleasure to collaborate, perform and/or record with luminaries such as Grammy-winning producer Scott Mathews, guitarist Stef Burns and The Ensemble Symphony Orchestra.
My current and ongoing goal is to compose music for film, television and/or other various multimedia projects while staying true to the music I love.
I was born and raised in Marlborough, Massachusetts but have resided in Milan, Italy since 1990.
