“I’m looking forward to playing some intimate acoustic shows in England in May. I’ll be performing several songs off ‘Survivor’s Guilt’ for the first time, as well as a bunch of songs from my other projects.” Caruana says. “I found what I love to do long ago.” he continues, “Writing, recording and performing music, traveling, and making friends and memories. I don’t think I’d truly be happy doing anything else. When you look at it that way, what else is more important than to be happy with your life and how you choose to live it?”

Speaking of what inspired the songs on ‘Survivor’s Guilt’, Caruana explains “I feel lucky to be here and I want to live life completely. I want to respect the dead by making the most of my life. Every time we lose somebody we must be thankful to still be breathing and have a chance at anything. Life’s not always a picnic, but it’s all we have.” This sentiment, perhaps more than anything else, is the essence of ‘Survivor’s Guilt’: Caruana, seizing what life has given him, and making the most of it. He’s certainly expressed himself powerfully in the past as a founding member of The Movielife and I Am The Avalanche, but the songs he’s crafted on ‘Survivor’s Guilt’ are striking pieces of evidence that Caruana has pushed himself creatively far beyond anything he’s ever written before. “This is my debut full-length record,” he says, “So it’s a huge thing for me. This has been a goal of mine for my entire career, but I’m really happy that I waited this long to make this record, because I had to live life for a while before I was ready to write these songs.”
