As suggested by the name of this blog, the independent music scene is full of hopeful, talented people who want their music to take them to a career of touring, seeing the world and playing tunes. In some cases though, independent musicians simply write because they want to, safe in the knowledge that their day job will sustain their creativity.
Joe Rhinewine, a clinical psychologist from Portland, Oregon is a case in point. His music clearly isn’t looking for a wide audience, just perhaps a small band of like-minded individuals who appreciate his skill and sense of humour. As shown by his new track ‘In the Box (Put It)’, his is a sound not destined for radio. However, there’s enough quality here to pique the interest for his new EP.
The ‘Songs from NowHere’ EP is out now on Amazon.
