Born and raised in New York City, Carl Gershon’s entire life has been dedicated to musical pursuits. Gershon, a graduate of both Northwestern University and the School of Audio Engineering NYC, scored internationally distributed films, toured as lead guitarist in several bands and has now released his first batch of songs as a solo artist, not only writing and co-producing all songs but performing all vocals and instruments (guitar, bass, synth, drums, programming, saxophone) as well. His sound springs from the same fertile soil that inspired Quincy Jones to recruit Eddie Van Halen to record his mind-melting “Beat It” solo, the Neptunes to channel their beat-making studio wizardry into the white-hot rock fury of N.E.R.D., and Depeche Mode to go back into the studio to record extended dance floor ready “night versions” of their ubiquitous singles.
