I asked Joseph Masciello if he would create a theme song for Handshake 2.0. He did.
Joseph Masciello composed the music and wrote the lyrics to "Handshake" and Jarred Foresman directed and filmed the Handshake music video. I love "Handshake" and I've posted the video on Handshake 2.0's second and third anniversaries. Expect to see it again when Handshake 2.0 turns 4.0.
With delight, Handshake 2.0 announces the August 10, 2011 release of Joseph Masciello's first album, Holy Mother Earth.
The music and lyrics for the 17 songs on Holy Mother Earth are by Joseph Masciello. Leah Clark delivers vocals on 11 tracks and other songs feature Rick DePirro, Kenny Custalow, and Dominick Pages. Joseph is the solo vocalist on "For a Season."
I asked Joseph what it felt like to release an album. He kindly replied, "Waves of joy are washing over me to see the album being positively reviewed and now on iTunes and other sites. I've been a professional musician since 1967 and this is my ultimate musical experience. My friends Nick Pages and Leah Clark contributed greatly to making this album the success it is."
Holy Mother Earth is available on iTunes and CD Baby. Songs from the album are getting play time with host Alvon Griffin on WMNF 88.5, Tampa, Florida. Joseph Masciello is already at work on a new collection of songs.
A heart-felt handshake of congratulations to you, Joseph!
