Chuck began his musical career as lead guitarist for a popular Baltimore-based band, Man’s Theory, the first self-contained African/American band to be signed by MCA records (1975) joining the roster of artists like Elton John, Bernie Taupin, Olivia Newton- John, and Lynard Skynard.
By the age of 17 his fondness for piano became a reality when he taught himself to play. From his hungry club band days in Baltimore and D.C., Chuck relocated to L.A where he performed guitar studio session work interspersed with several years touring the world with internationally known top-40 groups such as the Bee Gee’s and Shalamar. He did significant studio work with Motown artists and worked on projects for producers such as Leon Sylvers, Berry Gordy, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, in addition to working on more than hundreds of projects with various artists, producers, writers, and/or arrangers.
In 1987, he signed with A&M Records and joined the roster with Janet Jackson, Barry White and Sting and released “Just Havin Fun.” The group The Fit, (the collaborative name of Chuck and singer Vince Ebo) sold extremely well on both adult contemporary and r&b charts and whose video “Just Havin Fun” held strong in the top 20 countdown on both B.E.T.’s video soul (with Donnie Simpson) as well as VH-1 was the most requested for it’s time frame.
