"Strange World"

"Not your usual songwriting, not your usual lineup--Joseph Blaise and his band will soon be locked up in the Ann Coulter Memorial Reeducation Camp for Unusually Smart and Perceptive Musicians, so: See them now, hear them now, and above all buy their stuff now before the Great Darkness envelopes everything."
- Charles M. Young, Rolling Stone

"Strange World EP Review"

"Composed and formatted on a three-inch compact disc, “Strange World” packs more punch than its small size would have you believe. This New York City based singer/songwriter writes music that is adult pop-rock with tremendous string arrangements and great melodic vocals. I like that he allows his songs to be littered with odd tinkering sounds of odd bleeps and bleats, all of which uniquely juxtapose the more traditional sounds of adult alternative. His lyrics are addictive and laden with pop hooks. I love the piano parts, which give it a sense that you’re walking through Central Park on the first day of summer encountering the wonderfully unique personalities that wander through the park."

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Joseph Blaise studied classical piano from age 6, and completed his first "chick song", Endless Dreams by 14. By 16 the chick had dumped him. And so as it would be, the songwriting process was born. Throughout high school and college Blaise continued to create and collaborate leading multiple bands through a growing arsenal of original piano-pop songs. He shimmered against the trenches of New York City's notorious "dive circuit" playing keyboard in a jam-pop band called The Northerners and then suddenly disappeared into the shadowy underworld of open mics and coffee shops. Nearly two years later he burst back into the NYC music scene as a solo artist with a newfound creative freedom, a littany of untapped musical ideas and, after months of auditions, his own rocking band courtesy of Craig's magical list. These days Blaise is cranking out songs in some of the city's finest venues and recording a full-length record to be released this spring.
