4 Reasons Why Charlie Puth’s Nine Track Mind Will Turn You Into a Love Survivor
Listen to tracks that soothe the soul and heal the heart
If you think Charlie Puth just another pop act that caught fire on YouTube and then later scored a handful of global hits over the last two years, think again. The man knows music.
On a full scholarship, Charlie honed and polished his musical genius by completing a degree in music production and engineering from the Berklee College of Music. Notable alumni from the university are Quincy Jones, John Mayer, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, just to name a few (He’s in great company, but if some of the names don’t ring any bells, brush up on your music history, pronto.).
The 24-year old singer/songwriter/producer is legit and he made sure to showcase his talents on his first studio album, Nine Track Mind. But with hits like “Marvin Gaye” (featuring Meghan Trainor) and “One Call Away”, the album not only proves that his tracks not only soothe the soul but also heal matters of the heart. So, whatever it is your heart is dealing with, just count on Charlie.
