So… I have an EP in the works.  It’s going to be 4 or 5 songs and it’s titled “Navigation of the Heart.”  After the “Somewhat Unplugged” EP I wanted to do something that has a little more of a “rock” edge to it.  I’ve been sitting on a few of these songs for a while now.  So please keep an I out for it.  Aiming for a July release.  Other than that, I’ve been writing a lot and already have a song I want to put out as a single after the EP.  Hope all is well!

New EP "Somewhat Unplugged" 

Hello everyone!  So I thought it would be cool to put out an EP with a more stripped down sound using mainly all acoustic instrumentation.  Acoustic guitars, cajon, bongos etc. The work is very much a DIY project having played all the instruments myself while also recording and mixing the tacks at home.  I definitely have a lot to learn on the mixing side of things but I think it turned out pretty good.  Besides the fact that it’s a money saver, I really enjoy the freedom of recording at home and being able to experiment and capture inspired performances without the stress of being in a professional studio with the clock ticking.   

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out what I’ve been up to.  I hope you like the songs! 


Appropriate Notes 

Joe Steele's new release "Appropriate Notes" is certainly appropriately titled.  The words, the melodies, rhymes and notes flow through Joe's songs in what seems to be an effortless manner.  From snappy lyric driven jams to soulful ballads, Joe Steele is a well rounded artist with a unique sound and raw talent.  In a time when our world truly needs it, he brings us the song "Much Love."  A tender, well written jem on this album that reminds us to choose kindness and that giving love to others can go a long way.
