"True Love's Tears is a Masterpiece, performed Beautifully by Michael Caruso and written with longtime collaborator Randy Sharp. It is the sweet marriage of music and lyric not often seen in today's music. The lyric actually tells a story, a sad one. Someone older reflecting on life and explaining to someone not so experienced the harsh reality of True Love's Tears. How Would you know unless you have been where I have been, known what I Know and Cried True Love's Tears. Total Genius. Reminiscent of Beatles Harmony and Brilliance. Five Star, writing, music and delivery. It gets no better than that. "

Thank you and I will download your music and share this post with my friends and family!"

Scary strings and stuff. vocals are gravely and edgy, truth be told, this something I think we all have thought said or done, Michael captures the other side of what humans can be, like if the devil ever starts to pray, we will be in trouble. perhaps we already are, good one, recommended listening, but could be addictive added to station”
