Karl Sanger

Karl Sanger has been in and around the music business all his life. Born & raised in Rochester, New York, the son of a computer systems analyst & homemaker, one of four brothers. Gifted at an early age with a golden ear, he began playing in his native New York club scene, studied at some of the finest institutions & soon began to fuel a love affair with music that has lasted his lifetime. After attending Nazareth College of the Arts, Karl began his professional life as a musician where he honed his musical craft & played in numerous bands. Karl’s saxophone, keyboard, emcee & vocal talents would later take him on tour to the West Coast where he relocated in the 80’s. After tiring of life on the road, Karl took a break from touring to use his business skills where he spent several years in hotel management culminating with a position as General Manager of a 300 room hotel in the Disneyland area. Karl soon realized that if he was going to work 60-80 hours a week, it might as well be in his own business.  

Thus, in 1990, he combined his business know-how with his love of film, television, literature, music, & entertainment. The result was Sanger Talent Agency & Music Unlimited, a licensed & bonded talent agency including a film & music division representing LA’s finest actors, screenwriters & recording artists in addition to an entertainment company, booking all types of talent for casinos, special events, concerts,  corporations, conventions, private functions, etc. Karl’s diverse life experiences, voracious appetite for reading, & work ethic also helped him to develop his craft as a writer.  After writing 10 screenplays & teleplays, he  wrote his first non-fiction book, ABSOLUTE POSITIVITY, an Inspirational Story of Positivity, Prayer & People.  Since it’s 2/25/13 release, the book has received 5 Star reviews & is experiencing strong sales, climbing as high as #7 on the Amazon.com Inspirational  book new releases. 

And the train  continues to  gain  steam  as KSP played to a packed house in Long Beach & received an equally warm welcome from the audience during the ABSOLUTE POSITIVITY CD Release / Kickoff Event on 3/24/13.  Sizzling sax melodies, distinct tone & versatility from instrument to instrument help Sanger bring excellence, electricity, passion & an abundance of energy to expectant audiences. Sanger's technique & proficiency is expertly complimented by his unbridled showmanship & ability to work the crowd.  Karl cherishes personal time with his wife of 21 years,  his 3 beautiful children & niece at their home in the Los Angeles area. In his "leisure" time, he enjoys reading, movies, sports, playing  in his church orchestra &  praise teams as well as  studio recording, disc jockeying, & special time with friends.  A renaissance man, Karl considers himself a crazy compilation & contradiction of business knowledge, creativity, & artistic talents. He strives to live each day with an attitude of gratitude.
