Stan Karcz has no reservations about revealing his heart through his songs. In the finest tradition of the Country & Pop troubadour, the timbre of his soul shines through his music.
Growing up in the city of Chicago, a first generation American, Stan’s musical inclinations were evident at an early age. His family, immigrants from Poland, were ardent supporters of his musicality. Beginning with the accordion, he quickly progressed to clarinet, tenor sax, and ultimately, the piano.
Stan honed his keyboard craft through private study at the Sherwood Music Conservatory and the Bloom School of Jazz. Today, Stan’s original songs neatly stitch a patchwork of influences; Country, Southern Rock, Pop, and Blues, into an accessible musical tapestry. He writes about life’s positive experiences, as well as its trials and tribulations. He likes to write a story with a universal message that the listener can understand.
He began writing songs at when he was sixteen years old. As his life matured and progressed, so did his songwriting. Stan has since collaborated with such luminaries as Noah Gordon, Nick Sturms, Mason Douglass, Dillon Dixon, Bobby Boyd, Chris Sligh, Mark Mackay, Adam Shoenfeld (Guitarist Tim McGraw, Big & Rich, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan) Jim Peterik (Ides of March, Survivor), Walker Hayes, Greg Barnhill, Karen Staley, Kris Bergsnes, and Corinne Chapman.
