“The Deal” is the first single taken from “Honeybirds”, the first solo album for the Italian/American songwriter Joseph Martone, already known for a bunch of full-lenght released in the past decade as Joseph Martone and the Travelling Souls. The desertic on-the-road setting of the video are a perfect introduction for Joseph’s nomadic spirit, and well reflect his love for Ennio Morricone’s “spaghetti western” soundtracks. “The Deal” video was directed by filmaker and visual designer Salvo Delle Femmine. Special guests are Ilaria Graziano (Yoko Kanno, Francesco Forni) at vocals, Taylor Kirk at electric guitar, Ned Crowther at bass, Pietro Amato at keyboards / french horns and Jonathan Maurano (Epo) at drums. The album “Honeybirds” will be released worldwide March 20th, 2020, and it’s been produced by Taylor Kirk from Timber Timbre. Joseph Martone is an Italian-American songwriter who draws on the sounds and rhythms of these two environments and cultures to create his own unique style of music. His songs are honest, often painful explorations of his childhood and adolescence spent between Italy and the USA, painting pictures of his extraordinary life and featuring a colorful cast of characters who have contributed to his story. These are songs of love, pain, family, friendship, betrayal, time and memory. For Honeybirds, Martone has enlisted Canadian musician Taylor Kirk (Timber Timbre) to produce, and used the help of long-time collaborator and co-writer Ned Crowther (The Fernweh, Smokey Angle Shades). Honeybirds was recorded between Napoli (Trail Music Lab Studio) and Montréal (at Sky Barn Studios owned by Richard Reed Parry from Arcade Fire). It was mastered by Harris Newman (Wolf Parade, Frog Eyes, A Silver Mt. Zion, Vic Chesnutt, Astral Swans, Carla Bozulich). The themes and sounds of the record have taken a darker, more reflective direction, with Kirk bringing a majestic, wide screened scale to Martone’s work, delivering a true emotional weightiness to the performance of the songs.
