So after a few years of hard work I am so happy to finally present you with my brand new EP Regeneration. The EP is currently available to download directly from My Website as well as major distributors like iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and Apple Music.
In case you haven’t been able to tell in the build up to this release, I’m really proud of these songs and I’m so glad that I’m now able to share them with you all. I also have to say a massive Thank You to Samantha Dorrance, Alex James Ellison and Al Howell who all gave me their time, talent and enthusiasm to make an appearance in one way or another on the EP.
The music industry is in a strange place right now and I understand that I am by no means a well known artist, which means there will be a lot of people who are unwilling to take a risk and download Regeneration straight away. If you visit the Regeneration Website you’ll be able to listen to the whole EP on a Spotify playlist, that way you can check it out and see if you like it before you take the plunge. If you enjoy it and feel like you’d listen to it again then please do consider downloading the EP.
Despite the fact that making music has become increasingly easy and accessible over the last decade or so, it actually still costs quite a bit of money to pull it off properly. I by no means expect to make any money of this, but it would be nice to break even so if you feel like helping me out I would be eternally grateful.
For those of you who have come to my live shows, commented on my videos and posts and have been waiting for this for a long time… sorry it took so long! Whoever you are, if you liked the EP or even just a single song from it, let me know! You’re always welcome to start a conversation with me on Twitter or leave a Comment on my Facebook Page. Yes I write music because I want to, but the main reason I record it is so I can share it with you. I make music for you guys to enjoy so if perchance you had a good time listening to this EP please do get in touch – I will always be happy to hear from you.
And now that I’m done talking, here’s the official press release…
A Brand New Six Track EP From Singer/Songwriter Josef Pitura-Riley!
The long awaited follow up to Josef’s debut EP “A New View” is finally here! Featuring six brand new songs, Regeneration is set to take things to a whole new level from the raw excitement of Where Do We Stand to the haunting simplicity of Sunrise. After the release of his first EP, Josef took off on a whirlwind tour all round the UK. While on the road for this he continued writing songs and upon returning home, promptly set about recording the best of these in his home studio.
A versatile and accomplished musician and multi-instrumentalist, everything you hear on the EP was performed and recorded by Josef… well, almost everything. That’s because this time round Josef was lucky enough to collaborate with some incredible artists. The EP includes duets with both Samantha Dorrance and Alex James Ellison while the opening track also features Al Howell on Lead Guitar.
Regeneration picks up right from where A New View left off, continuing along Josef’s musical journey. There’s plenty more of the upbeat and catchy melodies he’s well known for as well as some slower numbers that are packed full of emotion.
1.) Where Do We Stand
2.) Shadows (feat. Samantha Dorrance)
3.) Perfect Summer Day
4.) One Of A Kind (feat. Alex James Ellison)
