When Charlie Lang performed his first public single "Remember Me" at the 2003 Project XL State Finals, his talent of singing and playing the piano was still unknown to even some of his closest friends and family.
After wowing the crowd with a heartfelt solo piano ballad, it was clear that his music was not going away.
Raised a Suzuki Method classical piano student since kindergarten, Charlie broke away from classical piano in high school. He began focusing on a jazz and rock style while incorporating some of his own lyrics and melodies.
He wrote more frequently and recorded a solo piano demo later that summer which consisted of a few originals along with popular covers. His songs began to take shape as he added other instruments and parts to his songs, and he was soon performing originals with local music groups.
"At that point in time," Lang says, "I was like a bubble waiting to burst. I had all these songs, ideas in my head and had to let them out or I was going to go crazy."
So Lang went to work. Feeling the need to be in control of his music, he went into the studio as his own producer and engineer while bringing in musicians to record his first full band album.
"I knew exactly what I wanted, so the songs surfaced the way they played in my head. There was no blindness to the approach, and for that, I think this album truly represents me."
Lang is currently performing locally as he promotes the release of Standing Away From You. His fresh and new piano rock sound is causing a stir in his hometown music scene. Lang's emotional performances have helped to rapidly build his fan base with noteworthy gigs at the University of Indianapolis and the 2004 Indiana State Fair, but Lang insists he's just begun.
"I'm proud of music and I want people out there to have an opportunity to hear it." He laughs, "A lot of people joke, saying, 'How good of a record can a 17-year-old kid make?'"
Charlie Lang promises he will surprise you.
