Joe Moe''s 1st solo effort, MAINLAND is a bittersweet, Hawaiian-flavored confection. “Hapa Haole” (part white) because Joe Moe is. Non-gender specific because Joe Moe is not. It is filled with sometimes curious, always beautiful songs and amazing musicians and artists including notables Van Dyke Parks and Nivek Ogre (Skinny Puppy). MAINLAND was arranged and produced by Cheez Masheen (Michael Webster, Marc Doten and Brian Woodbury).
"Joe Moe is descended from Hawaiian music royalty - grandson of pioneers Louisa and Pulu Moe and grandnephew of Rose and Tau Moe. Hawaiian traditional and pop culture strings the songs on this debut solo album into a melodic lei of Cinerama scope. Similarly, the magical pull of the island homeland threads through the lives of Southern California''s large Pacific-Islander community living in the shadow of that ersatz Mauna Loa, the Matterhorn. Former lead singer of a number of experimental SoCal ensembles such as The Native Shrubs of the Santa Monica Mountains, Joe Moe''s musical ''ohana here includes high priests of contemporary music of the American southwest. Farther west. Keep paddling." - John Goss (cd liner notes)
Joe Moe says:
MAINLAND is a musical tribute to friends and heroes who have written songs I’ve sung, or wish I’d gotten to, over the years. It’s also an exotic melting pot of stories about leaving the place you were born to create a new home. About discovering why the place you’re from is called “home” and how you can spend a lifetime trying to get back there. Here too, traditions of the past negotiate with modern lifestyles. At the core is the universal struggle to find love but with the unique complication of being “alternative."
I hope you enjoy the music. If you listen to the entire cd, you will hear my heart.
Mahalo! - Joe Moe"
