Charles Cleyn


  1. 1.
Charles Cleyn was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. He grew up playing piano and singing songs around the supper table with the family.
“Music was always playing in the house. I grew up learning how to sing harmony and how to hold a tune.”
Over the years, Charles Cleyn took what he learned in music growing up and started playing school talent shows and local clubs in the Ottawa area. Years later, Charles found his own voice, and started writing his own music. "It took awhile for me to get comfortable with writing and playing my own songs but after every show people kept saying I should keep doing it, so I am.”
Charles is currently living in Berlin. He released his debut single on June 1st, 2018.
Editors Notes:
Charles Cleyn’s debut blends soulful choir and majestic harmonies that perfectly match his style of combining acoustic instruments and 21st century pop rhythms, like the beat on “Believe” or the swelling cellos on “Heart”. Cleyn’s EP hand holds you through a story of truth and love from his soft vocals on Dream to his powerhouse lines in Heart.
