Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, Shaul Charles Goldberg, otherwise known as HARDCHARLiE, braved the challenges of teenage life armed with a pen and paper. A classically trained pianist, guitarist, and drummer, Goldberg grew tired of playing other people’s music and recognized his need to create something raw and accessible for the masses.
While at the University of Kansas, Goldberg met a Rabbi, Zalman Tiechtel, who placed a yarmulke on his head and tzitzit at his sides. Discovering his heritage in a brand-new dimension, Goldberg dove headfirst into teachings of Chassidic mysticism and surfaced with hip hop masterworks. On the mic, Goldberg creates percussive bliss through lyrics brimming with five-thousand-year-old tradition mixed with coping strategies against modern day demands.
More than a musician, teacher, and devout Jew, Goldberg holds a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and works with teens from Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods. Such a unique blend of ability is an especially rare find in an over-saturated musical arena. As audiences awaits his newest release “DiViDED,” Goldberg hopes that he will make an impact on not only the hip-hop game at large, but on each and every one of his followers, personally.
