Rockwired Radio Profiles #548 - Joseph Pagano

You can call JOSEPH PAGANO's debut EP GRAVEYARD OF DREAMS a  CD that was a lifetime in the making. The road to rock n roll glory was paved early on when his high school band JUNIOR'S FARM won a BEATLES sound-a-like contest at BEATLEFEST. From there the kid had a knack coming into contact and striking up conversations with such rock n roll luminaries as STEVE MILLER, DURAN DURAN's ANDY TAYLOR, GARTH HUDSON of  THE BAND and ROB HALFORD of JUDAS PRIEST.  However it was a meeting with jazz guitar legend STANLEY JORDAN who inspired PAGANO to let the world in on his solo work.  Equally inspired by the MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSE through the BERKLEE ONLINE COLLEGE OF MUSIC, GRAVEYARD OF DREAMS is a heart-on-the-sleeve rock album that mixes storytelling with fine songcraft.
