Music Business Spotlight: Charlie Coffeen

If you missed Studio 300’s recent Music Business Spotlight, you’re in luck. Watch it below for a wrap up of our month-long Music Business Month where we spoke with music industry insiders.

We recently had the chance to sit down with keyboardist and composer Charlie Coffeen to get an insight into the music industry. Coffeen, a Chicago native, is best known for his work with the Chicago based hip-hop/soul group Sidewalk Chalk, where he spent 10 years as the band’s leader.

Coffeen has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists such as D’Angelo, ?uestlove, De La Soul, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jean Grae and Action Bronson, to name a few. You can also watch a video of Charlie Coffeen and his 12-piece orchestra paying tribute to one of his biggest influences, the legendary hip-hop producer J Dilla.
