With the release of his self  titled EP, Joe Mysterio takes a fresh approach to genre crossing to give the record a life all its own. Lush with addictive progressions, a passionate indie vocal approach, and pop overtones, the record boasts the aesthetic of pop rock anthems. 

The first single, “Tricks", immediately grabs you with it's infectious pop groove, followed by it's building arrangement giving way for a powerful chorus that allows it to breathe as it plays on. 


"'Tricks' is about one girl in particular I had been speaking to for about two months, who I had great vibes with while we were talking. One day we planned to actually meet in person, but out of nowhere she never spoke to me again and I felt that she had been playing tricks on me the whole time. When I was writing the lyrics initially, I had some normal heartbreak lines you would find in a lot of songs, but because of the situation I decided to have some more fun and actually have the lyrics reflect a theme of magic. I began looking up magician terms like sleight of hand, mechanics grip, and referencing the famous Houdini in the chorus of the song. With this theme, I started creating a character out of this girl and painted her as an evil magician out to cast her spells on me and everyone else she can wow with her magic" explains the songwriter of his single. explains Joe of his single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding of where Joe Mysterio is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

 

"The single has everything you may find when you listen to a Joe Mysterio song. I like to be very percussive with my rhythm guitar playing and have bass lines in close syncopation with it. All lead guitar melodies that I write are with the intention of grabbing the listener and having them remember that melody perfectly. Some guitarists that influence my playing are Johnny Marr, Nile Rodgers, and John Frusciante. While the lyrics may either be humorous or more dramatic and personal, the overall song tone is upbeat and catchy, adding to the humor I like to face all of life's challenges with." says Joe of writing the record.  
 

The Joe Mysterio project has been in the works since Joe was only 17. In the beginning the songwriter  was simply looking for people to start a metal based project. By the end of high school he lead a band in covering Green Day songs and received excellent feedback from the performance. It was then that he knew he wanted to write his own songs. 

 

Soon after, he attended  the University of Texas in Austin and during his time there, started working on recruiting other musicians to work with. Although it seemed like it might be easy in Austin, it turned out to be more difficult than he expected. 

 

It wasn't long before the artist took matters into his own hands and began teaching himself home studio production. Focusing on songwriting and  recording technique, he finally had 3 songs he felt were all worth recording professionally. It was then that the Joe Mysterio EP was finally born. The release is a testament to where he is at with his musical journey right now. 

 

Joe Mysterio is available now for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and the artist is always working on new material for upcoming releases.
