ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hey everyone out there in cyberland. My name is Joe Stone and I was born in 1977. (Have fun with the remedial math). I am an independent musician releasing my first real recording here on the internet, after lots of frustration dealing with record companies. This album was made for only $1,000 (not including equipment) at a home based studio in L.A. The music is alternative/rock led by the piano but harpsichord, Wurlitzer, and synthesizers make their appearances as well. I am hugely influenced from soundtracks by Elliot Goldenthal and Goblin and many more. My first 14 songs are pretty somber this time out. I think they are best to listen to in that soundtrack frame of mind. Feel free to create your own melodrama movie in your head. The album "Wall Dreams" deals with the themes of monsters (the human and the other kind) domestic turmoil, lost loves, lost lives and ends with the song "Pensacola" which is lyrically just a fluff song that is deigned to end the journey in a safe place. People are a lot more responsive to the lyrics than I expected (in a good way). Check out the above mentioned "Worn Down" on the music page. Each song however, has its own voice. Growing up in Florida (gateway to whatever the hell it is) and in some pretty bizarre circumstances gave the inspiration for the material which pretty much speaks for itself. Please recommend it to your friends if you think they'd like it and please keep piracy down since I am still a starving artist. My second record is already done and will be released soon. I delved into percussion on that one and more piano acoustics. Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. Many thanks from me and my demons.

Wall Dreams' first review
"'Piano does not mean light-rock broadway ballads', says L.A. based independent musician Joe Stone. In fact, he proves that it can be the centerpiece of alt rock music on his debut album Wall Dreams. After being frustrated with dealing with record companies, Joe decided to go it alone and produced his own album for under $1000 (not including equipment).

Wall Dreams is a full length record featuring a whopping 14 tracks. Judging from the samples on his MySpace page, the lyrics are dark and the music is intense. Apparently there is some debate as to which track should be the featured single from the album. Put my vote down for Worn Down which is a track that is uniquely Joe Stone. I love the layers of sound on this song, definitely a track to slip on some headphones to fully appreciate.

I'm looking forward to hearing some tracks from Joe's second album, which will feature some percussion work."
