I’m not too cool to admit that I don’t know every awesome band or musician out there. Thats why having a homie like Bert pays off. He tipped me off the other day about a guy named Joe Pug. I have basically spent all my time since then listening to his songs and loving them all!
I contest that music hasn’t seen a lyricist like Joe since Bob. That might be a hard bridge for some to cross but its worth considering. Listen to these songs and tell me you disagree…
We need more musicians like Pug.
Musicians that sing the contents of their heart.
Musicians that are passionate about their craft.
Musicians that are raw.
I really hope Joe Pug goes places and continues to put out music like this. It may seem counter intuitive to promote a guy whose charm is partially attributed to being unknown and I am sure there are those who will be pushed off the bandwagon by an increase in popularity because they only listen to “indie” musicians. To each their own. Joe doesn’t seem like the kind of guy that would sell out for fame.
He says himself, “the more I’m bought, the less I cost.”
Next time his tour crosses my path know where I will be.
