"Joe MIralles Trio"

Glorious Night is the first track on Narrow Path, the new album from Joe Miralles. The hopeful vocals and taut drum, bass, and guitar arrangements makes for a track that is equal parts 1990s alternative and 1970s singer-songwriter. While this introductory single would easily make its way onto radio / playlist rotation, I feel that the backing instrumentation far outstrips the quality of the average radio track. There is a density to this arrangement that will ensure listeners continue to find new twists and turns even five or ten plays in.

Blue has some impressive guitar work that begins the track, after which the bass and vocals rise up into prominence. The act is able to whip in more of their influences during this second song on the EP; bits of Bon Jovi and Springsteen can be heard during this outing.

Narrow Path is an absolutely epic track that looks to the halcyon days of progressive rock and John Denver-esque storytelling to make for a cut that will resound loudly with listeners long after the EP ceases to play. It is during Narrow Path where the vocals take a focal point; standing boldly above the instrumentation, these vocals are able to easily connect with fans.

I Owe You has a traditional sort of sound that succeeds to a bouncy bass line, charismatic vocals, and on-point piano and drums. A bit of strings added into the mix establishes I Owe You as a late-album track that is nigh-perfect.

Break would be a great track to introduce fans of Umphrey’s McGee or NRBQ ; there is a bit of jam band mixed into a funky 1970s rock backdrop. The tracks on Narrow Path provide a solid introduction to the Joe Miralles Trio. Make it a point to check out their main domain or Facebook for more samples of their music and updates/news from the act themselves.

"Press Release Joe MIralles Trio"

Philadelphia Singer/Songwriter Joe Miralles is back again with a new EP titled “Narrow Path”. The EP includes five new songs that were recorded at the Hacienda Studio in Phoenixville, PA by the Joe Miralles Trio. His new band includes Gary Houk on drums and keyboards, Nick Priessnitz on bass guitar, and of course Joe Miralles on vocals and guitar. This body of work was orchestrated over the last few years, and could easily prove to be his best compositions to date.

Joe also enlisted the assistance of Cliff Hillis, who produced the album and also played guitar on some of the tracks. Mike “slo-mo” Brenner added pedal steel and Rosie McNamara-Jones played fiddle on some select tracks. One of the highlights of this recording is the uplifting “Glorious Night”, a song about discovery and new Beginnings. The haunting and direct “Narrow Path” also delivers a very strong message. A previously released single in 2016 that received airplay from both regional and national radio stations, “Blue”, is also a part of this project.

The EP “Narrow Path” is sure to be a success for the Joe Miralles Trio. In support of their new release, the Joe Miralles Trio will be touring regionally throughout the Northeast
