Teen Songwriter and Musician Caleb is Today’s Honoree

Caleb14-year-old singer/songwriter/musician Caleb who is bicoastal, living in Hastings-on-Hudson in New York and recording in Los Angeles. He plays guitar, ukulele, base, drums and piano and his songs are way beyond his years.  “More Time” which addresses teen suicide and bullying has recently gone viral on You Tube with 2.5 million hits and his overall site is 4.2 million.  City Hearts charity which introduces at risk kids to the arts is using “More Time” on their website and Caleb is a supporter of the organization. He has just received a record deal and his album will be coming out in the next few weeks.  He is recording with PJ Bianco who also produces the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus.

He’s a great kid who has his ego under control and only wants to produce better music that can make a difference.  He regularly performs for free at Charity events that he supports. In April he headlined a sold out concert at the Roxy on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood that benefited the “Stop the Hate” charity and headlined again for the ASPCA fundraiser in LA last month. “More Time” and “We Run” are his most popular songs. “We Run” just went over one million views this week on You Tube.

Caleb made his musical performing debut in September 2009, at the tender age of 11 at the “Take Me to the River Music Festival” in Hastings-on-Hudson, to the delight of the huge crowd in attendance. Enjoying the thrill of a live gig, Caleb performed to packed coffee houses and local venues around the New York area since 2009.  Caleb performed live on WHUD radio in May, 2010 at the urging of highest grossing disc jockey, Catherine Michael,  on this, the #1 radio station in Westchester County, New York.

When Caleb’s grandfather died in early September, 2010, Caleb wrote an amazing song about his feelings which he was fortunate enough to sing at the funeral and again at other music venues. In early October, 2010, moved by the news of several teen suicides due to peer bullying and most notably, Tyler Clementi, Caleb wrote, “You’re Not Alone,” and dedicated it to those who took their own lives.  This catchy song was only up on You Tube for a few days when the promoter of a March for Equality to End Hate asked Caleb to perform his song live at the Stonewall Inn on October 9, 2010.

In July, 2011, Caleb began recording his original songs with music Producer PJ Bianco (the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato) in LA. The duo wrote and have recorded 11 songs to date. Characterized by his own style of indie rock, with compelling lyrics, Caleb’s songs have been on the lips of folks around New York and LA who have encountered the talented young performer.   Most recently, Caleb’s song, “Falling Over You” was a #1 hit on Tween Pop Radio and in the Top 40 for several weeks.  That song was voted #1 in the Stars of Tomorrow competition on Triple H FM radio, 100.1 in Sydney, Australia.

On February, 6, 2012, Caleb performed at Zsa Zsa Gabor’s 95th birthday party at her Bel Aire mansion for a crowd of 100.  As a result, he was interviewed by several television stations. On April 21, 2012, Caleb performed at the Roxy at the Uneeqablity event for the benefit of  STOP The Hate. Caleb’s songs, “You’re Not Alone” and “More Time” will be used in support of an anti-bullying campaign initiated by Max, a character on the hit television series, “Glee” through a charitable organization, City Hearts, in Los Angeles.
