)-- New Take on Critically Acclaimed Song 'Disaster' Leaves Powerful Impression for Up and Coming Artist
Singer/Songwriter Joshua Stallings has one mission as an artist - to make music meaningful again. Today, marks the arrival of Joshua's highly anticipated debut single, Disaster. The song was originally performed by JoJo, a modern pop icon, who's music has been an inspiration to Joshua for many years. He partnered with British musical composer Jamie Cleaton on a new piano instrumental of the critical acclaimed song. Stalling’s original work has been garnering attention for two consecutive weeks trending on ReverbNation's pop charts in anticipation of the release on iTunes.
Stallings has fostered a love of singing for most of his life. He grew up in Riverside, CA and the Prescott, Arizona area and has often taken comfort in his love of music and the freedom of expression that music can offer. He has a strong interest in self-improvement, research, and hard work when it comes to his career. He has worked tirelessly to learn the industry inside and out, has self taught himself basic guitar and piano, produced all of his own graphics, and has written hundreds of songs, capitalizing on personal experiences, both negative and positive.
On July 14th, 2012 Stallings accomplished a personal life milestone - recording his first song at Epicentre Recording in downtown Phoenix. The experience was documented in the "The Making of Disaster" which can be found on YouTube.
“Recording my first song has been a much anticipated, frustrating, incredible, and ultimately life changing experience. I wanted to record this song because I love JoJo and want my fans to see my ability to make music my own, I want them to understand who I am as an artist,” stated Stallings.
Stallings is under the management of Tony Felice PR & Image Management, an international publicity and talent management firm. “Joshua's talent is an incredible gift. If I were JoJo, I would be honored for Joshua to cover my song,” explains Tony Felice.
"Music is my life's passion, it is something that I live and breathe. When I write music, I try to give a voice to emotions that people are afraid to state. I want people to feel connected to me and more importantly - to themselves. Music has been a constant lifesaver and has taught me so many lessons. This relationship that I have with music is what constantly inspires me to push forward and continue to purse my passion," stated Stallings.
Disaster is now available on iTunes and www.joshuastallings.bandcamp.com. All proceeds raised from the sale of Disaster will go towards the recording of Joshua's debut album, Loud and Clear.
