- What and who were your early passions and influences, What inspires you to make music?
The love for my craft came at a very early age. I knew I was always destined for this journey because its who I am and not just what I do. I draw from all the usuals like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC but my most distinctive influences song style, vocally, and performance-wise probably tend to lean towards John Fogerty, Bon Jovi, Matchbox Twenty, Springsteen and Mellencamp.
- On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
308 GHOST TRAIN lead singer Anthony “Train” Caruso developed the unique idea for this new project coming off a win for the 2019 POSI Song of The Year Award in the Social Justice Category at the POSI Music Festival and Awards Ceremony held in Tampa, Florida.
The POSI Music Festival is known for promoting and celebrating music with messages of positivity, inspiration, spirituality, and unity. His performance of a newly cut original song led to a standing ovation and sparked a deep interest in booking around the country and set in motion a movement that is gaining steam every day.
- What has been your biggest challenge as a Musician?
The greatest challenge right now is to figure out how to get on the road and touch as many people as possible worldwide. This is an arduous part of the journey. My greatest attribute is my ability to connect with my audience/fanbase whether there are 20 or 20,000.
I am a relentless pursuer of my endeavors and as tenacious as they come. The nickname suits that personality the saying is “Either get on board or get the Hell out of the way!

- Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
