Biography

Charlie Played Cello* (or CPC as their fans say) is a Los Angeles-based rock band about to break onto the national stage. The band has been together just a short time but the accomplishments are substantial: a contract with New Deal Entertainment (a label associated with the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team), distribution through Universal’s Fontana Distribution company, two songs written for CPC by Brian Holland, and tracks engineered and mixed by Grammy-award winner David Bianco (at his studio in North Hollywood) and produced by Davey Meshell. The band has developed a loyal following that has seen them perform at classic L.A. venues such as the House of Blues and Viper Room.

The sheer scope of the music spans from mainstream power-pop to nostalgic jam band to sinister post-punk anthems. CPC plans to release their 15 tracks on three separate EPs. The first, "Red" now available on itunes, features their radio-friendly tracks.The second release, "White" delivers CPC’s edgier tunes. The final EP, "Blue" reveals a more soulful, eclectic side of CPC.

Charlie Played Cello is in honor of Charlie Park, Resch and Wiebe’s wonderful friend, who died driving home from one of their early concerts.
