Customer Reviews

Blue Turns Black on iTunes!

Blue Turns Black is Joe's most personal and mature collection of songs to date. Blue' - like Nolan's other CD's - flaunts contemporary trends - including New-Soul cliches – to create nothing less than a Rosetta Stone of American Music, running the gamut from solo-folk ballads to horn-infused soul to pop and rock. The song “The First to Know” has already been featured in the independent film For Women Only, which has played at the Asheville, North Carolina Film Festival as well as the da Vinci Film Festival.
