Hi I'm,

Carl Pariso

I am an Actor, Musician, and Composer who is passionate about creating and performing musical theatre and pop music. I recently organized a cabaret of all my original musical theatre pieces that fall under the genre of Horror.


WHo Am I?

One Actor. Four Instruments. Unlimited Ideas.

I'm an Actor/Musician/Composer that was born and raised in the farmland of Montague, New Jersey. Yes, it does exist. I started singing, playing piano, guitar, and bass at a very young age. Then, went on to front, and songwrite for several bands during my highschool years, which eventually led me to pick up percussion. After watching Fred Astaire dance with Ginger Rogers in the movie "Swing Time" for the first time at age 17, I qucikly caught the musical theatre bug, and decided to go to University of Delaware to major in Music Composition, with a concentration in Voice, and a minor in Theatre Performance. While down in Delaware, I immedaitely found myself as an aprentice at my own university's professional theatre: The Resident Ensemble Players. During my time in Delaware, I had played roles such as "Boo Radley "in To Kill A Mockingbird, "Bobby Strong" in Urinetown, "Prince Eric" in The Little Mermaid, "Matt" in The Fantasticks, and many more.


I moved to NYC in 2016, and hit the ground running. During my time in NYC, I went on The National Tour of "Cabaret" playing Clifford Bradshaw. I wrote, produced, and performed in my own cabaret of my original musical theatre songs. I also, wrote, produced, and starred in my own Film Short titled "Truth on the Stoop." I ended my time in NYC playing bass for the pop duo MIDLO. 


Currently, I am living in Nashville pursuing a career as a songwriter. My single "That Girl" was released March 2021and I am recording my own Singer/Songwriter EP which is looking to release in late Summer of 2023. 


You Didn't Hear It From Me...

Charming and handsome, yet wonderfully confident, Pariso allows every audience member to see the world created in Cabaret.

Pariso's gentle voice is pure magic!

His body carries the essence of his spirit whenever he moves with a song.

Pariso is disarmingly accessible in naïveté, humility and idealism.
