Lawrence A. Carastro had one simple goal in life: to protect and to serve. As a young man, LA got his dream job, only to have it taken away prematurely. A few strange turns of fate later, Carastro found himself in federal prison for drug trafficking. During his prison stay and in the years that followed, Carastro traveled down a road to redemption that led him from three hots and a cot to earning a PhD from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Today, he has achieved his goal to protect and to serve as an electrical engineer working on projects that keep Americans safe with the United States Navy.But he took one hell of a road. Carastro, now 67, documented that road he traveled in his memoir called “The Bus Ride Back.” The title refers to the 20-hour bus trip Carastro took to Miami after he was released from prison. His storytelling earned his memoir first-place for best nonfiction in the 2019 Indie Originals Book Competition. We sat down with LA Carastro to talk about his book, and his crazy, adventurous life.

Remember, our creator's competition is going on NOW at Just Cruise by Kassidy LynneKassidy Lynne is a Country singer/songwriter from Seattle.

Here’s beauty queen Kassidy Lynne …Bayamos by Raising CadenceHailing from Orlando, Fl, Raising Cadence formed in early 2014 from the remains of older local bands but with bigger hopes and an even bigger sound. Along with the musical meaning of Cadence, the name derives from a mutual friendship the band has with a man and his daughter and how their relationship became a model to live by. The band has released two EP's 'Northbound' and 'Take Me Higher' and are currently releasing more music such as 2018's single 'Leave It Alone' and 'Bayamos'. Big things are to come from up and coming band Raising Cadence.My Soldier My Son by Debbie BarnesDebbie Barnes is a Country singer songwriter from Brevard County FL.

She moved to Nashville, TN in 1994 and proceeded to take guitar lessons and joined the Nashville songwriters association to better hone her songwriting skills. She resided in TN for 10 yrs and recently moved back to her hometown of Cocoa Bch FL where she continues to write and perform originals and cover songs with her trio Aisle 4.Down by Barefoot ModernBarefoot Modern was born in 1998 in Winston-Salem, NC in the form of a ginger-bearded baby named Caleb Luh’-Zhern. Caleb burst forth from the womb with 9 months’ worth of songs already written. Flash-forward 8 years and 200 miles north, and you’ll find Mini-Robert (Beverly), with oversized glasses and feather boa, pounding out piano pop songs at an elementary school assembly in Goochland, Virginia. Back south in Oak Ridge, NC, we see Tegan Dean, Barefoot’s angelic lead singer, dribbling a soccer ball in her driveway, for hours, a song always on her lips. And close by in Jamestown, NC, Hunter Evans is flashing through childhood with his insane Bolt speed and Spidey-like acrobatic skills; on the rare spotting of this cheetah-child, he’s wielding a guitar. A few years later, Caleb, Hunter, and Robert met at high school, where they formed the garage-grunge band “The Bliss Trip.” They kicked butt and had some success for a few years until 2017, TBT morphs into Barefoot Modern. They won some awards, and are ready for more. You Don’t Deserve Me by Ginger“Born and raised in the little mountain town of Robbinsville, North Carolina, Ginger has been singing since she was old enough to stand. Now based out of Savannah, Georgia, Ginger is best known as the lead singer of the rock band Liquid Ginger, her new solo album “Fly on the Wall” quickly reminds you why she is a Georgia Music Award-winning vocalist.“Fly on the Wall” is all about: that secret, hidden life we all share full of heartbreak and love, fear and pain, triumph and hope. Ghost In The Mirror by Darren DPaul Wise [darren.wise.12] Proud endorser of PRS Guitars and Mesa Boogie published songwriter.

Seas Unknown by Alto KeySeas Unknown is a fun indie folk song that wraps up the complex themes of identity and fate in an upbeat, catchy romp.

From Roanoke, VA….@shaundoylemusicThe Haze by ReleaserStartup four-piece Releaser has started performing ahead of their debut record. Put it on your short list. The record too. There are certainly positives to take - from traversing the Chicago rock landscape from band to band. The experience gained. Living on stage. Ever honing one’s chops. But almost every band dissolves. Not because the songs suck – that part’s up to you. No, it’s a vibe issue. The way people make stuff together. In any work – in any life. And it’s the right people and the right fit that have eluded these four guys all that time. Until now.Releaser met and assembled with the common objective to deliver you the highest quality songwriting and live performances that their decades of collective grind and know-how could muster. The music is effective. The lyrical content is honest – something too many artists have abandoned in favor of sounding important. The vocals and melodies will have you singing Release in your head at work like a boss. Releaser.Sanctuary by Suzanne DeeAt age 7, Suzanne Dee found her passion in horseback riding and she was on her way to making it to the Olympics. Her dreams came to a halt in 1996 where she suffered a serious surgical neck injury. With her family’s help and support, she found an interest in learning the guitar as part of her therapy. Although she struggled due to her lack of strength from the damage, she found determination to continue fighting through it. As time passed, she continued to strengthen and the guitar not only helped with her...
