Hacia tiempo que no buceaba por MySpace, a no ser que algo me llamara mucho la atención. Supongo que si lo hace Fede y Lito de vez en cuando yo debo hacerlo :P El jueves estuve mirando un par de cositas, y estoy segura que hay muchas cosas que reseñar. De momento os dejo con un artistas que hace temas de esos que siempre me gustarán, sobre todo cuando empezaba a escuchar y prestar más atención a la música. Un poco sonido Lifehouse, diría incluso que Richard Marx...
El Joe Brooks del que hablamos en este post en de Estados Unidos, lo remarco porque hay un jovenzuelo por el Reino Unido del mismo nombre, del cual probablemente también hablemos en el blog.
Rock / Pop / Alternativa
Los Angeles, California
Info recogida en su MySpace:
Joe Brooks (b. Steven Joe Brooks in Quebec City, Canada) is a Los Angeles based epic/pop singer, songwriter, producer, recording artist, pianist and guitar player.
His music blends alternative, pop and rock into one mainstream sound.
Joe's musical path began in a suburb of Vancouver. Devouring everything on radio, he spent most of his time writing and recording songs using an old piano and a pair of 4-track recorders.
Answering an ad in a local music newspaper, Joe connected with a record producer and got his initial start in the music business. Joe's songwriting skills gained significant radio success in Canada, and a nod from the Canadian Juno Awards.
In l999, Joe moved to Hollywood, California where he began collaborating with writer/producer Tim Feehan. "I came to Los Angeles primarily to work on my own material, but when the opportunity came up to write for teen-queen Tiffany, the harder rock direction she was pursuing really appealed to me".
Billboard Magazine declared Tiffany's The Color of Silence, as one of 2001's best pop records. It included ten tracks co-written by Joe, and prompted extensive touring throughout the US and Asia.
After the tour, Joe returned to California and began writing and placing songs for a variety of network and cable television shows including: The Hills, Ugly Betty, Men In Trees, Pepper Dennis, Ghost Whisperer, Brothers & Sisters, My Name Is Earl, Desperate Housewives, Laguna Beach, Jack and Bobby, Summerland, One Tree Hill, Behind The Music, and True Hollywood Story.
In 2006, Joe decided to focus on his own musical perspective, and returned to writing, recording and performing his own songs.
Music Connection Magazine described Joe as an "exceptional talent" and rated his EP one of 2006's top 25.
In the mornings of 2007, Joe began work on a new self-produced album, by seeking privacy down in the parking garage of his apartment building, where he sat in the back seat of his Chrysler with a cup of coffee and a cracked Seagull acoustic guitar, crafting new songs for hours at a time.
Then, in a studio set up only a few feet from his kitchen, Joe immersed himself in the recording process, playing every instrument except drums, which were performed by renowned drummer Chris Frazier.
In early 2008 Joe Brooks emerged with his latest collection of original material entitled Time Machine.
Most recently, Joe's songs Strange and Lift You Up were featured prominently on the MTV hit The Hills.
In addition to writing and producing his own album TIME MACHINE, Joe has written songs for Tiffany (The Color Of Silence, Dust Off And Dance), Julie Wood, Krayzie Bone (of Bone Thugs N Harmony), Nancy Weisler, Agina, and Mojophonic.
