"Jersey Musician Records Single for New Orleans"

Jersey Musician Records Single for New Orleans

By Mix Editors

Oct 18, 2005 8:00 AM

New Jersey musician Vincent Addesa has written and recorded “The Ghost of New Orleans” and will donate all proceeds from sales of the song to Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. The song is available for download at, an online music service for independent musicians operated by Barber Shop Studios in Lake Hopatcong, N.J. The song can be downloaded in return for a donation of at least $1.

“Like most people, I was saddened by the devastation inflicted upon the New Orleans region and I want to do whatever I can to help support the residents that have been displaced and who face an uncertain future,” Addesa says. “When writing ‘The Ghost of New Orleans,’ I tried to imagine what it must be like to be transplanted from your home to someplace completely unfamiliar. I hope that I’ve successfully captured that concept and that people will join in supporting the hundreds of thousands of victims in their time of need.”

Addesa was recording his debut CD, Out of Time, when Hurricane Katrina hit. He immediately wrote “The Ghost of New Orleans,” and added it to the upcoming CD. While recording at the Barber Shop Studios, he approached owners Scott Barber and Mark Salamone with the idea of offering the song to visitors for a donation that would be given entirely to the Red Cross. After listening to the song, Barber and Salamone quickly agreed to Addesa’s proposal.

“Mark and I were inspired by the beauty of ‘The Ghost of New Orleans’ and by Vincent’s generosity,” Barber says. “ listeners will appreciate the stirring lyrics and harmony. This is a great opportunity for them to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina and enjoy a composition from the heart.”

Feeling a bit camera shy


Vince Addesa’s emotional and daring life journey molded him for exactly who and where he is today. This only child, schooled as a classic pianist in an Italian Newark home, busted out as a sexy 70’s keyboard slammer in Jersey rock/disco bands.

Transformed into a suburban executive by age 30, Vince built a successful computer company, but he most treasures the priceless friendships, which developed during the 15 years of corporate insanity. “When you meet Vince, immediately, you are enamored by his quirky presence, unique insight and complete honesty. His soul shows,” says Mark Barber of Barbershop Studios, where Vince just completed recording “Out of Time”.

Vince reveals that he was lead by God to sell the computer company in 2000. He believes he shortchanged God for many years. “I found Christianity in college, but shortly after, I fell back into life under Vince-power, not God’s”, he said. “ I always knew that God was with me, but I wasn’t always with God 100%. It wasn’t until I got back into church about 4 years ago that I really started a steadfast relationship with Jesus Christ. He’s given me better songs, a better voice and better inspiration than I ever could have achieved without Him.

“My deepest passion can only be satisfied through music.” Vince says,” I love to mix it up; Bach meets Bono, jungle drums with harpsichords, Biblical prophesy and love songs. It’s all about that unique sound, sparking emotion, enlivening the desire for more intensity. Music sends electricity through my soul.”

Vince has poured his entire being into his new CD, “Out of Time”. Vince is finally pursuing his lifelong dream and fulfilling God’s will as a singer, songwriter, and
