I was just looking through some old pics and came across this…It’s some artwork of mine that I did a long time ago now…it was originally just a doodle that I drew by hand… I often doodle:) I then scanned it into the computer at some point. When designing the original CD artwork for “But First…This Song”(Now recently released as “The Godsend Sessions”) I was going to use this for something…probably somewhere on the inside booklet…I guess I will still use it for the physical release of my CD ”The Godsend Sessions” which should be coming soon.
Some time back…I was a member of a website called talentdatabase.com and I titled the work “A Musical Mind” and uploaded it there…it was then given an award and featured on the main page! :) Some of my wonderful artist friends and also many artists that I began to meet online showed me alot of support and encouragement and seemed to really like it and wanted to see more of my work and so called “Doodles”. The website soon shutdown and disappeared…but then I put it up on deviantart.com…It is also available at my cafepress store as a ceramic tile coaster…and from what some friends and fans have told me it really looks cool as a design for that…like a mosaic tile…My deviantart link is: http://joegande.deviantart.com/Please visit and comment and if you have a page there with your work let me know and connect with me there…I’d really love to know what you all think and get some feedback…Thank you!Love,Joe
Just found out today…been so busy lately and finally got around to my Youtube inbox and discovered a great message…
My video from Youtube is now featured on my friend Katherine Corrigan’s awesome website GoAskKatie.com! Thank you Katherine!:)

To my fellow artists, and for music fans as well …If you’re not doing so already…Bandcamp is a great website to sell music… and to also buy it…very simple and fast to set up…with so many great options…and the artist recieves 100% of the sales…and also recieves the funds instantly…that’s right…instantly…to your paypal account…no middle man, no commission or percentage taken, no waiting for your payment for weeks or months…no miniums to reach before getting paid…noe profit or ad revenue sharing, no paying the man a huge chunk of your profits…which is something everyone…all artists and music fans alike should really dig!
This site is truly revolutionary…and such a breath of fresh air and relief I might add…especially for those of us struggling and working so hard trying to simply make a living at what we love to do and feel we are born to do…I’ve been doing my thing for a long time now…and have tried it all…probably almost every website out there for selling your music! :) lol…they certainly come and go…have their heyday and rise and fall in popularity…they all have great ideas and have their forte…and special niche or feature that you as an artist like or music fans like…and…as far as exposure goes…I believe you really need to be everywhere…think of it as having many satellites out there reaching people, discovering new listeners, gathering and then bringing them all back to your place…which is your website, blog or even facebook or myspace...where you can then interact…and build a strong community…

Thanks to all that tuned in,joined us in the chat room there, called in or caught the show later...I really appreciate all the kind words, thoughts and messages about my music!:)
I think this is the first time I've done one of these phone in podcast interviews...and after this experience I think I will definitely be doing some more...
Leasa was an awesome host! We talked about some things...she played a few of my songs and people called in... So glad I got to chat with one of my longtime online friends...the talented Singer/Songwriter Tommie Brewster!
Thanks for calling in Tommie and for your awesome questions!
I Loved chatting with everyone in the chat room too..it was great!
Many of you that really know me may know that I'm not that fond of the phone in general and can be pretty phone shy:) Unless of course I happen to be rambling or ranting and raving about a subject that I am passionate about!:)LOL
Except for when I am singing...I think I sound pretty goofy...you know..like when you're a kid and you hear yourself played back on a tape recorder for the first time and don't even recognize yourself and say "That's me?"!:)
But...Leasa asked...and she made me feel really comfortable about the whole idea...so I thought that I would give it a shot...Here is the result...

Joe Gande - BUT FIRST....THIS SONG (The Godsend Sessions)
Every once in a while I run across a rocker that I just can't take my ears off of.
Joe's finely crafted high-energy CD tunes, vocal and guitar skills far exceed the "average band" these days... in fact, cuts like "Can't See My Life" take me back to my earliest experiences with bands that made the heart soar.
It's really nice to hear such strong talent in today's (often) diluted energy field... none of that on Gande's efforts, to be sure!
There is a superb taste of the unique on tunes like "Lost Her Head", though I would have preferred it be a bit longer than 3:44 (especially that funky/dow-un bass line that's drivin' it).
The tune that gets my vote as favorite on this set of songs, though, is the 6:08 "Godsend".
Artist names runnin' through my head like Joe Cocker (for the vocals) and Robin Trower...
as I listen to the swirlingly cosmic guitar lines at about 3:00; absolute KILLER rock with the kind of punch that will drive you straight into the edges of the oblivion you've been seeking all these many years!
This is more than just being "impressed" - I'm inspired by Joe's excellent music, & give him my MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, especially for listeners whose roots reach out of the "normal jazz mode" into the kind of stellar energies that drive the universe. He gets an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.98, too.

New Review featured now...Written by Paul Ruth of "The Independent Music Scene"...Joe Gande
Joe Gande is a rock, hard rock, blues artist and songwriter from New York, New York. His music holds the excitement that you would expect from the genre. Basically the sound is the full package. It is dynamic, soulful, smooth, but heavy. A great layer of sound the intensifies as the songs go on. Joe provides an experience for just about anyone who likes music. It is not common that I find a person of this kind of talent. Check out more info on his official page: http://www.joegande.com/
Songs I like are "25 Hours", and "Brighter Day". they can be found at his Reverb page: http://www.reverbnation.com/joegande
I just came upon this today on the Melodic Revolution Records Website...and it made my day!:)

"Was just listening to Joe Gande's music...mind blowing...I feel Kravttz has a lil competition coming" x
"Hi Joe..I really appreciate your songs...they speak to me and I love it...You have something that stands out in your music. I am a huge Lenny Kravitz fan and you have a quality in your music that is similar to Lenny...the passion shines through and the lyrics are very real. I think you have the 'raw energy' quality and it transfers into your music... I don't need to see you perform to know that you captivate the audience. Actually the more you listen to the more mind blowing it gets. Plz link on myspace.com/jazmkz and I will put u in my top frenz."
