Local singer/musician Jac Jacaruso is a warm and familiar presence in Idyllwild’s music and art scene. There are two words that best describe Jacaruso, “duality” and “family” – “duality” in how his career has played out and “family” as the centerpiece of his life.

Born in Queens and raised in Brooklyn, Jacaruso remembers his parents as “the most loving and wonderful parents one could ever imagine.”

Early on, Jacaruso played with members of a band called “Topper” who played with Billy Joel. He also started playing with a major songwriter named Desmond Child, who had a band called Desmond Child and Rouge. “I formed an original band called ‘The News’ with some amazing NYC musicians and we started to make some noise around town and up the East coast,” he said.

At the same time, his day job, working in information management and technology, was also growing legs – the “duality” in his career was beginning to emerge. “I started to develop more technical skills in computer programming and the combination of music and technologies started to intersect in my life,” Jacaruso recalled. “I went back to school at night and took computer science classes and started to develop a career in this area along with my continued passion for music.

I currently work from home, travel to the East coast for business while playing local gigs as my schedule allows. I feel extremely blessed to have a wonderful family, to be a part of this very special community among many other incredibly talented musicians and artists, and to be provided an opportunity to express this side of my duality at this stage of my life. My main goal is to give something back to this community.”

For Jac Jacuruso, “duality” and “family” sum up a life well lived that continues to unfold.
