Who is Charlie Puth
Charlie Puth was born Charles Otto Puth Jr on 2 December 1991 in Rumson, New Jersey. He is the elder son of Debra Puth, a music teacher who also wrote commercials for HBO and Charles Puth Sr, a builder and real estate agent.
When Puth was two years old, a nearly fatal dog bite incident left his right eyebrow permanently scarred. At the age of four, his mother started teaching him how to play the piano and exposed him to classical music. He began studying jazz when he was young and joined a summer youth jazz ensemble at the Count Basie Theatre’s Cool School in Red Bank, New Jersey, when he was twelve.
Before earning his diploma from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School in 2010, he attended Holy Cross School, Rumson, and Forrestdale Middle School.
