9/20/14 What does it take to Conquer?

Have you ever thought about what it really takes to conquer something? One meaning of “conquer” is to successfully overcome.
 
Many of us go through hardship in our lives at one time or another. They may be health, financial or relationship related. When we think about it, how do we truly get through those situations? I know I have tried to get through sometimes with only minimal effort. 
 
I only go half-in. When I should be going all in…(Read Full Blog Here)

I love to make music, but I live to make music that makes a difference. I am so proud to announce that on Friday June 27th I will be returning to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester NY, for the second time. Last year I accomplished a dream of mine playing on that legendary stage and now I get to expand on that dream. This year we are stepping it up and I am thrilled to have Duncan Sheik Co-headlining with me. Duncan is known for his top 20 single “Barely Breathing” and the Broadway sensation “Spring Awakenings” that won him 2 Tony Awards and a Grammy. So awesome, right?

Being able to put on a concert and give back means the world to me. It is my WISH that you will be there and share in what will be a special night.

3/28/14 Make A Wish

Have you ever made a wish then experienced the joy of it coming true? There is no feeling like it, especially for a young child. When I was asked to write a song for the Make A Wish Foundation I was overjoyed with the opportunity. 

This Saturday I get to perform it live at An Evening of Wishes Gala at Mohegan Sun and speak about my story. I also get to introduce a video package showing how Wish kid Sierra’s wish, to visit “Harry Potter Land” in London, gave her the hope to believe in a future. Sierra’s future is one filled with dreams to be a star and to change the world. As the star of the “Evening of Wishes” Gala, guests will witness first-hand Sierra’s dreams become a reality and watch as she begins her journey to change the world, one wish at a time.

I’m so honored to be a part of this night and can’t wait to share the song with you in the coming weeks. Read more here

Happy 38th Birthday! LOVE YOU!!!!

3/7/14 Happy “Charlie Scopoletti Day!!!"

I figured you might want to start your day with a little celebration. A year ago today a dream of mine came true when I stepped on the legendary Capitol Theatre stage. As a young boy I imagined that moment in my mind so many times. When people told me it was a long shot, I didn't waver in my belief. I knew that one day I would.  

Sometimes in life we're met with resistance, sometimes the obstacles feel like a course that never ends and sometimes we feel like waving the white flag and surrendering. It's in those moments we need to push with everything we have and break through. We need to stand tall and show the world what we're made of. 
 
If I would have listened to all the nay-sayers, I would have sold my self short of accomplishing a dream and that is not ok. Keep thriving and keep striving. I am so grateful for you! You mean so much to me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support! Without you, none of this is possible!!!

What an honor it was when the Mayor of Port Chester presented me with a proclamation giving me my very own day.

3/5/14 New Recording with Oscar Winner

I've been waiting to share the news with you and I just can't wait anymore! I am back in the studio recording my new EP. YAY!!! It will be a 6 song CD, one being a song called "This Wish" that the Make A Wish Foundation CT asked me to write for them. I also will be performing the song at their "An Evening Of Wishes" Gala at the end of the month which will celebrate Wish Kid, Sierra. At five years old, Sierra was diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition - a diagnosis that can be devastating, especially to a child. But the power of a wish can turn despair into hope, fear into strength, and sorrow into joy.  

This past Sunday we started tracking the instruments for all the songs at The Carriage House in Stamford CT. I'm so fortunate to have such amazing musicians and people recording with me. One being, engineer and producer Robert L Smith who just won an Oscar for his work on Documentary 20 Feet From Stardom. How awesome is that? He also has been nominated for Grammy and Emmy. What a privilege to have his talents on this recording. Hopefully some of that magic will rub off on this new one!  

Tony Tino (Bass), John Giamra (Drums),
Charlie (Acoustic/Vocals), Josh Dodes (Keys) & Robert L Smith (Engineer/Producer)

 
Thanks to Josh Dodes (Keys), Tony Tino (Bass) and John Giamara (Drums) for coming into the session like the pros you are and knocking out these songs. Much appreciation to Sara Wise, assistant engineer and special thanks to Elisa for making sure we all stayed hydrated, fed and for capturing these moments.
This is going to be a good one my friends, Can't wait for you to hear it!!

2/4/14 We Can Beat Cancer...

I am proof!! World Cancer Day is a chance to raise our collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconceptions about the disease. 
Myth 1: We don't need to talk about cancer
Myth 2: There are no signs or symptoms of cancer
Myth 3: There's nothing I can do about cancer 
Myth 4: I don't have the right to cancer care 

Love to those we have lost, the beautiful survivors and all who are fighting!
