Description

“New Songs For Old Souls“ is Joe’s first studio album for Linn Records, following his signing to the label in 2014. The album comprises twelve songs with ten terrific originals by Joe, including three thrilling big band numbers: “Nobody Cares Like Me“, “Pocket Song“ and a new version of “Gold On Silver“, previously heard on “Songs On Film Live“.

Joe’s seamless ability to mix contemporary style with a fond nostalgia for the Golden Era of Gene Kelly and Louis Prima means his ‘old soul’ finds a perfect match in these ‘new songs’. Joe’s trademark catchy hooks and clever lyrics (full of intricate rhymes and clever twists reminiscent of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter) create an instant familiarity.
