Biography

im gary caruso im 23 years old, i hail from the east coast , just north of boston massachusetts in small town called andover, basically my music interests became almost top priority the second i was introudced to the band phish, by my elder siblings, my brother had just started to play guitar, and i heard this guy just playing like i have never heard before, he was going all over the place but keepin it slithering along at the same time, it was then i told myself, i will earn how to do that, so i started to play guitar, as with phish' departure a couple years ago, i started to hang out and play guitar for the orignal samples keyboardist, al laughlin, it is a blessing to know that kat, the things i learned about songwriting from him are just indescriable, just astronomical!! this dude could write a song and still can, he taught me MANY things, but especially the art of simplicity and how to approach it, he taught me to never stop writing, when i met him i began to really think seriously about writing my own tunes, soon after i began recording i realised i need to know HOW to record i had no idea what the hell i was doing, so last january in 2005 i moved out to california where i currently live now, i have all but finished one (or maybe 2?) classes at my schook in burbank, VIDEOSYMPHONY, where i am taking a carreer program that will get me certified as a protools operator since that is the industry standard these days, the things i have learned and continue to learn from that school are just as mindblowing then what brother al have taught me, while i still have about 3 months left in all for school im trying to take advantage of living the life of a songwriter and just writing and producing my tunes, cause i know i wont be able to just sit pretty forever an do that!! now im at a very critical stage in my songwriting, my confidence is building rapidily and the simplicity factor is is defintaly rearing its head, i have made a point to try an get put in the jam band box, needless to say my old favorite band were one of the best at it, it could also be said for me as well, playing guitar , the jam genre would be my "safest" genre so to speak, and im not looking for safe!! im looking at everything, i embrace every genre of music like a piece of a puzzle and its up to me to decide what pieces i wanna use and how i use them , after all i want you guys to notice it is MY puzzle and you can tell its mine,. ya know what i mean?
