How did you come by your stage name?
John 3:08 describes the Spirit as being like the wind which blows where it, pleases. It comes and goes when and where it wants and is there for everyone. The Ghost (Whom Train refers to as his Musical Director). Train is lead singer, Anthony Caruso’s nickname.
Train feels that the SPIRIT is moving him on this musical journey – down this particular “track” –because He, in turn, wants the Train to move his listeners with his music and the messages he brings to them.
There is also a double meaning in the name. The visual of an actual train infers a moving vessel that is inclusive, in that it is large enough to have enough seats to accommodate anyone that wants to come aboard.
308 GHOST TRAIN’s music and messages are inclusive, with melodies and rhythms that are energetically infectious and with lyrics that promote unity, positivity, inspiration, spirituality, and patriotism.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
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.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
“Train” draws from all the usuals like The Beatles The Rolling Stones AC/DC but his 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 are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
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?
