Biography

Born on a hog and walnut tree farm in Illinois, Margaret Caruso made her way to Boston via Seattle. Here she can be seen jetting to rock n' roll engagements on a blue motorcycle. Although Berklee College of Music brought her to the East coast, it's the music scene that keeps her around. (Kirkland Cafe, Virgin Megastore) Margaret's debut album Joy Machine was made with the help of some of Boston's finest players. Among them were drummer Ken Schopf www.toadfish.org, bassist Stephen Desaulniers of the Ray Mason Band, guitarist Gaku Murata go.berkleemusic.com/gaku and banjo player Eric Royer www.guitarmachine.com. The New York Times has called her one of Boston's "favorites" as well as [something] to do at night.
