Texas Goes World!

It's a pleasure to listen to this music. Frankly, all the right moves are made, hitting all the good spots in my ear and heart. It's a toe tapper, first requirement. It's party music, festival music also, second requirement met. A good introspection also that gives it a personal perspective as if I am also sitting in my room. Trifecta met! It's hard to be so good, and as a major label recording studio is maybe and only maybe what may be improved for Joe Miranda. Everybody want's world harmony and peace and Joe Miranda certainly achieves the feeling here. Joe can gig anywhere for my money and I wonder if he is streaming on Spotify and YouTube so I covet this music all the time. Thanks for the great music Joe Miranda!

Joe Miranda & The Kings Of Texas - Close Up

Upon your very first listen to "Close Up" by Houston's fabulous Joe Miranda & The Kings Of Texas, you can not help but to be deeply impressed by the band's musicianship, the song's production and the impressive musical atmosphere that Joe Miranda & The Kings Of Texas are able to create. While their musical influences are evident, they definitely have a sound that is all their own. Highly recommended!

Amazing song

I was really impressed and so surprised with this song. I've heard some of your other music but this song seems different. I thought this song had a really good sound and seemed well put together. I really enjoyed it.

It kicks


What an energy! You have a sound that certainly reminds me of Texas in the best way, the guitar work is really solid and I really appreciate the harmonica towards the end. The composition and accuracy of notation is very much on point and the song really does kick. My only real drawback is that the vocal were a little low, I feel like either the guitar might need to be panned opposite of the vocal a bit or just a slight raise in the vocal, or even a tweak in the treble of the guitar to help the vocal stand out more. I still really enjoyed the song, thanks!

Rock is much more than a simple musical category, it is a way of life, a sonic revolution that has shaped popular culture. What makes rock music so captivating is its diversity.

Their songs continue to inspire new generations of artists and fans. Rock music transcends cultural and geographic boundaries, it creates connections between people and arouses strong emotions. It can be the cry of revolt of a youth in search of change, the expression of a deep nostalgia or simply a source of pleasure and escape. Rock is a timeless music, capable of touching everyone's heart and soul. Whether listening to the classics of the genre or discovering new talents, rock offers an unforgettable musical experience. So, whether you are an avid fan or simply curious, immerse yourself in the fascinating world of rock music and let yourself be carried away by its electrifying rhythms and indomitable spirit.

I like the originality of your work. Strong message and creativity is a big plus. Good production, I can hear some good vocals to this, good job on the final mix-down. I can tell you have your heart and soul into what you do. Keep on pushing and never give up or get distracted in pursuing the dream of making it. I like the instrumental blend of sounds with some vocals and the production on the track is good. Keep up the great work! Peace!!!

Close Up review

Always love the use of harmonica or horns in rocking songs. And this one has both! It's interesting how your horns come off almost like being south of the border. Almost like a mariachi horn section. Use of the acoustic guitar in your break is very effective as well. The female vocal in the background towards the end came in just a bit too low to understand what was being said and should probably be brought up a little or taken out all together. As it is, it sounds more like an accident of her talking. Good luck with your music and hope to hear more from you!

Feels Like Dancin!

Hi Joe! Nice intro, brings a person in and then the toes start ahhhh tappin! It is great to hear some fun vibes, especially as Spring in kicking into gear! The band sounds really tight! If those are real horns, sure sounds great and really lifts the song so much! It takes the song into a classy place! Also I can see this for sure in a Wedding, bringing people together, creating positive vibes and basically getting the party started! Nice little candy with the back up vocals! The band sounds really great!! Thank you so much for sharing your super tune with me!! Keep on a rockin! Rachel :-)

Get Closer

One of the things I enjoy most about Number One Music artists is the newfound ability to hear music from around the world by singers who I'd never have the chance to listen to otherwise. That, in itself, is a great thing. Here, with this song the harmonica invites our ears into this fun jam. Vocally, Joe's fine - but I'd almost like to hear him one or two notes higher like a Sammy Hagar. Sometimes Joe's voice, low in octave, blends too easily with the bass guitar. Musically well put together and quite fun.

Dear Joe & The Kings, This sounds like a full orchestra of instruments which compliment each other in this composition. This medley of sounds is so upbeat. I am loving the harmonica and trumpet, bass, and percussion all flow with ease in this instrumental. Your Lyrics speak truth of the heart. It seems you have a great band of accomplished musicians. Stunning in your execution and production. A great song for your listeners to jam. You have a great feel for your music and what instrumentals work with your lyrics. Altogether a winner so I give your song Five Stars for excellence.

Against the odds

The ingredients of the song are conventional, but the mixture is special. The brass pattern perfectly supports the drive and energy of the song and builds a nice contrast to the mouth harp in the intro. In the instrumental part in the middle, I guess 99.8% of all bands would have placed a guitar solo, but you did not. The lyrics re a bit hard to understand for a non-native english speaker like me. And I am still reasoning how long the verses are...the phrasing of the vocals is very special again. This is really against the odds, very different than the usual streamlined radio songs. But it's got something, and this small but precisely played brass pattern stays in the listeners' ear for quite some time.

This is a great, upbeat song and the wind section is a nice touch, which is something you don’t hear often enough when checking out artists tunes online. The guitars offer a quick-paced county-lilt and the song is a fun as the synopsis states. Great job!

partenza allegra

partenza allegra con voce rauca e originale per il genere e canzone divertente e molto orecchiabile che mette la voglia di ballare sembra di essere a un rodeo e la gente mangia e beve nel divertimento piu' sfrenato e a questo ritmo non si puo' resistere anche voci in sottofondo e la festa e' completa arrangiamenrto buono con le chitarre che sisfogano e tutto fila liscio
