Charlie Puth certainly is a force to be reckoned with. Signed to Atlantic Records (Warner Music), the 24-year-old from New Jersey surfaced last year and has non-stop since delivered the hits. His first single See You Again (from Furious 7) with Wiz Khalifa garnered him a #1 and three Grammy nods.
Marvin Gaye (ft. Meghan Trainor) was one of songs of summer 2015 and current single One Call Away has shown longevity, currently at number 10 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. He is said next to be producing Selena Gomez tracks for her next album.
Puth plays his first ever show in Toronto tonight at The Mod Club, the latest in a tour which has seen him trek through North America by bus. He spent most of his morning doing radio interviews before meeting fans at HMVUnderground, signing his debut disc Nine Track Mind and posing for pics with fans before an in-house photographer.
We had the pleasure of meeting Puth twice and he was amazingly nice to stop to take a Selfie being in a rush at KISS 92.5‘s The Roz & Mocha Show and we got to chat more with him at his signing where he was genuine in accepting a compliment about his album. We honestly love it.

See our Highlights of Puth’s day including his HMV Superstore visit and show at The Mod Club:
Puth played an amazing, intimate show with a selection from his debut disc NINE TRACK MIND. It was an experience getting to witness his true musicianship, performing extended endings to some of his material allowing him to scat and do vocal flourishes. The set was v. fan-focused with his audience singing along start to finish. And at one point he even invited one on-stage to perform One Call Away together, transposed into her range!
We also got to meet his Supporting Talent, Sony Music artists Phoebe Ryan and Sophie Beem, the latter whom we’ve been raving about much of late – she was signed by none other than Beyoncé.
