Demos #4 out now! 

This is my fourth collection of home demos, and I'm very happy to say my friend Amy Allen co-wrote one of these songs with me and sings on the recording. She's amazing and if you like the song you should check out Amy & The Engine because her band is bomb-ass.

While I was recording the album, there was a terrible car accident and my friend Kat Mulvaney was killed. Her mother was also killed and her father is currently in critical condition in the hospital. Her younger brother is taking care of all the hospital bills, funeral arrangements, and every other complication resulting from tragedies like this.

The album, like all my others, is pay-what-you-will, but I'm going to donate all the funds made off this particular album to the Mulvaney family in the hopes of alleviating whatever amount of the financial burden we can, in lieu of being able to help with the emotional one.

Thanks everyone! I hope you like the new songs.

We did it! 

The Kickstarter ended today at 4:30, the songs are all in their way to our mixing engineer, and Crees Lee finished our album art:

I'm preparing the Kickstarter backer rewards already! Thank you once more to everyone who pledged. This is actually happening.

We are fully funded! 

Two days ago the Kickstarter reached its goal of $12,300, which means that Brighter Moons will definitely come out this summer! I'm so ridiculously grateful and excited. We're proceeding with mixing this week, and there are still a few days left in the campaign.

Please click on the "Brighter Moons" tab to preview an unmixed, unedited track from the album.

This is going to sound really really good, guys.

Shows n Stuff 

Hi everyone,

How are you? Great! Cool cool. Me too. Yep.

Come and see me at these places next week:

Tues March 10th - I'm playing at BITR at the Red Room at 7pm. BITR stands for Berklee in the Round - a Bluebird Cafe-style performance in which four singer/songwriter people sit in a circle on stage, surrounded by the audience, and take turns playing songs. Then there's a fight to the death to determine a winner.

Wed March 11th - I'm hosting my first open mic at The Haven in JP, from 10pm until 2am or whenever the last people leave the bar. I'll be playing a set, alongside some fantastic performers which I got to choose (muahahahahahaha) and then there'll be an open mic. Then there's a fight to the death to determine a winner.

Also my friend Haley just took some pretty sexy pictures of me so I'm looking forward to getting an excuse to put those online.

x Joe
