308 GHOST TRAIN is an original rock act housed in Cortez, Florida with a sound based in the best of rock’s past and an uplifting and inspiring artistry for people of today. We call it “Fresh Retro" Rock with a Classic Vibe”. 308 GHOST TRAIN makes music for music fans of all ages who’ve become disenfranchised with current trends and long for music with more alignment to the mainstream rock genre, music with substance and memorable style. The first EP, “Born In The Wild”, started releasing singles on May 24th, 2019, featuring five songs. The new EP “Somethin’s Goin On” has released singles starting with “Bleed Over Me” on June 3rd 2020. The music has garnered over 50 million plays on Spotify and SoundCloud alone in the past 9 months.
308 GHOST TRAIN was founded by POSI Award-winning songwriter and vocalist Anthony “Train” Caruso, an intense and deeply spiritual performer. He pulled the name 308 GHOST TRAIN, from the Gospel of John 3:08 (“The wind blows where it pleases, no one knows where it comes from and where it is going but its in everyone born of the Spirit”), the Holy Ghost that moves in Caruso’s heart, and the unstoppable vehicle whose name he carries. The music he writes carries a message of hope, love, inclusion, spirituality, positivity, and patriotism that our world needs and Caruso feels that the wind has been pushing him towards this project his whole life. Even though the backing musicians can vary, The Ghost and Train remain constant. Regardless this versatile outfit has helped 308 GHOST TRAIN draw comparisons to John Fogerty/CCR, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, and John Mellencamp. Their sound is organic and timeless, built upon artistry and the human experience.
Train is an electrifying frontman capable of creating an immediate bond with an audience and authentically communicating emotions to his fans. “My passion for being the vehicle for songs from a divine force is the most humbling and honorable gift in the world,” he says and it’s clear he means it. 308 GHOST TRAIN is growing quickly and magnetizes listeners with a walk back in time that actually leads to a better place in the future for rock music. Get onboard today and stay there. The band members for the 308 GHOST TRAIN are Anthony “Train” Caruso (Vocals) Angel Soto (Guitars), Dave Taylor (Bass) and Nate Kintner (Drums).
Jer@SBS says: "This is…hmm…how should I put this? This is the best I’ve personally ever heard from 308 GHOST TRAIN, and a song "My Love's Lost" that’s strong enough to crossover into the speakers of just about every household on the planet in some way".
Keith @ Indie Band Guru says: "Music has a way of coming to people when they need it. This is often in a form of healing sounds or emotional lyrics that can pull the listener from a dark place. Our friends from 308 Ghost Train are back to continue this mission with a brand new EP Next Stop No Brakes".
