Coming off a four year stint as the bandleader on Last Call With Carson Daly earlier this year, Joe Firstman is getting back to his roots and releasing El Porto on January 26th via Rock Ridge Music. The songs are sparse and comfortable, with a rough-hewn relaxed tone that sounds an awful lot like an artist coming into his own. “I think this era right now will serve as a more prominent cornerstone that even the earlier music, because the earlier music is harder to define,” Firstman said. “This music, it’s easier to recognize the traditional qualities, and it’s easier to recognize even the sincerity. I feel like this is where it is all beginning, and it will all kind of orbit around this center, this nucleus.” Firstman plans to tour in 2010 with White Buffalo, Ernie Halter and more!
