Brookville, PA native Caleb Dinger has been playing piano and composing music since he was 10 years old. As a sophomore in high school he signed with an independent label and recorded his first album, “Counting Stars.”
In 2013, Caleb moved to Nashville, TN to study commercial piano at Trevecca Nazarene University. Shortly afterward, he was hired as a worship leader at Crievewood United Methodist Church, also in Nashville. In addition to his church leadership position, Caleb is a guest pianist / keyboardist with several bands in the Nashville area, a music teacher, and a collaborative accompanist.
Caleb brings a fresh and unique sound by blending styles of piano driven country folk with gospel roots and improvisation. He is influenced by Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bruce Hornsby, and James Taylor. His latest songs have garnered much airplay across the globe. Caleb's music first aired on Nashville's historic WSM Radio in November of 2016. Since then, his music has been added to the regular rotation of hundreds of country radio stations around the globe, putting him in the top 100 most played country artists in Europe in the fall of 2017.
His compositions have also received international publication. Singing the Faith + in the UK says about his song, "River": "This is a striking hymn, combining a creative use of biblical imagery with a gospel-country style of music... [It is] simple, clear, and easily singable by a congregation."
Like most artists, Caleb is continually developing his musical identity. Relying on gospel roots from rural western Pennsylvania and fusing them with legacy pop and modern country influences, Caleb is musically bridging the gap between genres with the desire to help bring people together.
