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. My songs have been featured on PBS, Fox's "The Wendy Williams Show" and HLM's "The Killer Truth" among others and I've also had the honor to collaborate, perform and/or record with luminaries such as Grammy-winning producer Scott Mathews, Huey Lewis & the News guitarist Stef Burns 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.
My current and ongoing goal is to write songs 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.
