San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2004
Bay Area based musician, Joe Caprice, has been selected to perform at the Independent Music Conference (IMC2004) in Philadelphia, PA. Joe Caprice is honored to be one of the first ten performers to be chosen by IMC2004, which will announce the rest of the performer line-up on July 4th. The Independent Music Conference takes place in September and bills itself as a "revolutionary new kind of music conference" which focuses on "empowering musicians to achieve indie success."
A true independent artist, Joe Caprice, has recently self-released his debut CD, "Acoustic" which features ten thoughtful and emotionally charged songs which underscore the bittersweet beauty of life. On "Acoustic" the music speaks for itself. With minimum effects and tweaking the songs are laid bare. This honest and heartfelt debut CD builds an intense emotional bond with listeners who can relate the songs to their own experiences.
"Joe Caprice has done something that not everyone has the ability to do," says Jeanette Drake, music reviewer, Indie-Music.com, "He completely captivated me... This was love at first sound!"
In an indie music success story, a local commercial radio station picked up Joe's single "Pretend" within one month of the albums release and has been giving it regular airplay. Joe's music is connecting with listeners who describe it as "dynamic", "intense", and "mesmerizing". In addition to fans, Joe's new album is also being welcome by some within the music industry.
"How refreshing to hear a recording that is just great songs, performed by a dynamic musician, and left in a pure acoustic rendition that reminds us of a time when artists really could deliver their material," says Warren Denis Kahn, two-time Grammy nominated mixing and mastering engineer. "Well... it's back. Sit back and enjoy! I sure did working on this record."
As an independent musician, Joe Caprice knows first hand the challenges that artists face in producing, marketing and distributing their work. The IMC2004 Conference, which is an educational and internetworking event, bringing together emerging artists from around the country and throughout the world, is an ideal place for Joe to perform. IMC2004 and Joe Caprice embody the maverick spirit that drives the truly independent musician.
