New York based guitarist
self-titled debut CD
inspired and intrigued a bunch of local progressive
rock musos. After jamming with a few, Joe finally found the right people
and put a band together.
David Penna on drums,
J. Levine on bass
Davis on keys brought Joe's solo material to life.
Harold Skeete and
Tony Savasta are now
filling the rhythm section duties. Now
as a band, AD ASTRA (Latin for "To the stars" -
inspired by the title of the closing track of Joe's
self-titled debut CD) has taken the compositional process
to another level and have completed a full band recording! With
tone and melodic sensibilities reminiscent of Steve Morse and Eric
Johnson, the focus is on compositions that are tightly structured,
eschewing the bombast and length that progressive rock is known for.
Smooth, thematic playing styles blend perfectly with soaring, uplifting
melodies. Combined with odd and shifting time signatures, you have songs
that always keep your interest and never sound monotonous.
