The Story Of Me

Charlie Millikin HEADSHOT.jpg

Born into a family of musicians, singers and songwriters, Charlie's unquenchable passion for great music and melodies seemed only natural.  He grew up listening to Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, and The Doobie Brothers among others, so it’s no surprise that by the age of 6 he was singing and performing with his siblings for family and friends.  It wasn't until high school though that he really got the bug, and flourished.  At 18 he picked up the guitar and hasn't looked back, playing solo gigs while working and attending school.  

In 2013, 2014 and 2016 Charlie was contacted by the producers of the TV show “The Voice” and invited to audition in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville.  He also recently won “Best Original Pop Song” and “Best Original Singer/Songwriter Song” in the 2016 Ohio Music Awards AND the overall Grand Prize in the Songdoor 2016 International Songwriting Competition with his original song “Change Me”.

 Charlie continues to grow as a performer, and now incorporates “looping” into his live shows.  By looping he can accompany himself not only with acoustic guitar, he can also create a drum track, bass and other instruments, giving him a full band sound.
