Charlie Puth Details
Born in the small town of Rumson, New Jersey, Charlie Puth is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. Much like many other millennials, Puth started his career via the internet. Taking a page from Justin Bieber’s book, Charlie Puth created a YouTube account and published his first video in December of 2009. Less than two years after creating that account, Ellen DeGeneres signed him to her record label, “eleveneleven”, and Puth went on to perform on her show. In 2013, Puth graduated from the Berklee College of Music, where he majored in music production and engineering.
It wasn’t until 2016 that Puth’s debut studio album, “Nine Track Mind”, was released. The album quickly rose to number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart and Puth’s career really took off. His debut album’s lead single, “Marvin Gaye”, was a huge hit in several countries, as well as “One Call Away”. Puth has since collaborated with hit artists including Selena Gomez, Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes, and Wiz Khalifa.
With over 2.1 million followers on Twitter, Charlie Puth’s fanbase is youthful and widespread. He offers inspiring words to others around him; he once tweeted, “To all the young producer songwriters out there. You don’t need a $500 an hour studio to make a special record. Cherish the day, go home tonight, play some chords, sing, rap, whatever on top of it, put some drums on it if you want, and share the beautiful colors of you.”
In 2016, Charlie Puth was nominated for three Grammy Awards including, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. “Voicenotes” is his sophomore studio album, released in 2018.

His lyrics are borderline cheesy, but they work – take this line, for instance, in his song,“Some Type of Love”: “When we’re old and gray and our faces changed, there won’t be a moment when my heart don’t feel the same. That’s some type of love… that’s some type of love.”
