He is one of Australia's best selling independent artists; yet, he remains a fresh new musical experience waiting to be discovered by a growing audience. Cary's beautiful original solo guitar music draws on the best elements of jazz, latin, folk, finger style blues and echoes of classical technique. Cary's music transcends barriers and is loved by people of all ages and backgrounds. Cary plays two, specially built, hand made Gary Rizzolo seven-string acoustic/electric guitars. The extra bass string gives a wider tonal range and more warmth allowing the subtle nuances of his intricate playing style to shine through. Cary was born in Tasmania in 1952.

Originally a primary school teacher, Cary has also worked as an ABC scriptwriter for the program Singing and Listening, and as the Musical Director with the Salamanca Theatre Company. His music has been used widely as backing sound for programs such as the acclaimed ABC documentary series, Australian Story.

He has toured internationally with a focus in Japan. Cary's concerts provide the audience with a delightful insight into the stories & inspiration behind his music, as well as experiencing his live interpretations of his compositions.
