Cary Shields is an international gypsy of mystery. A musician, actor and songwriter who has played for audiences worldwide and taken the road less traveled. His travels have offered him the chance to play alongside the likes of Brian Johnson of AC/DC, Rami Jaffee of the Foo Fighters and Wallflowers, Jill Scott and Boy George to name a few. He starred on Broadway in the hit musicals RENT and Taboo and Off-Broadway in Greenwood-The Musical.
A CD of his music was sent into orbit on one of the final Space Shuttle missions (STS-132). He now has the unique distinction of being able to truthfully proclaim that his music is “out of this world”. The reviews write themselves.
Mostly he’s on Earth, touring Europe, Asia and North America sometimes solo, sometimes with a band of Romanian gypsies. With a repertoire of over 400 songs in a range of styles he thrills audiences far and wide.
Whether it’s a an audience of thousands in an historic Broadway theatre or a dive with sticky floors and an audience of four semi conscious frat boys, Cary is a passionate performer who leaves it all on the floor. The beer stained, foul smelling floor. Depending on the venue.
