My high school love, Joseph Esturo, had big dreams. When we were 15, he told me he wanted to become a poet. I laughed at him and told him he wouldn't be able to support himself financially as a poet. Yeah, just call me a dream crusher.
He adored The Cure so much so that I would joke that he loved The Cure more than he loved me. Joe owned everything Robert Smith had ever recorded. He collected photos, magazines, books, everything and anything.
Joe had big hopes. He hoped to make music people could actually relate to. He hoped to record an album. He hoped to record a video. The other day I received a text message and link to his very first real video. I couldn't help but smile. Joseph Esturo's dreams are now reality and I'm so proud of him. He followed his heart and made it happen.
Joe's melodic, emotional sound is reminiscent of the music we once loved. Sure to make your skin tingle, "Spy vs Spy" is a track you will want to hear again and again. Check out his first single, "Spy vs Spy" a melodic tease from his upcoming independently released EP, Anyone's Guess on Igloo Records in stores late summer, 2011.
