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 being a church music director, Caleb is a guest pianist / keyboardist with several bands in the Nashville area, a music teacher, and a staff accompanist at Trevecca University. He often shares how the many creative groups he is a part of helps him grow in creating his own art.
Caleb brings a fresh and unique sound by blending styles of piano driven folk with gospel roots and improvisation. He is influenced by greats like Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bruce Hornsby, and James Taylor. His 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 radio stations around the globe, putting him in the top 100 most played artists in Europe in the fall of 2017.
Some of Caleb’s compositions have 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. He is musically bridging the gap between genres with the desire to help bring people together and help others find a sense of community, healing, and belonging.
