Guitars, Bass, Production in Kingstorm
Joseph also worked at local recording studios where he learned a great deal about the process by recording some area artists in
and around Ponce and nearby cities. In 1980 he recorded with a band called Stevie Staff where he arranged the music, played drums,
keyboards, and guitar. With his new found computer recording skills and all the possibilities that came along with it,
Joseph began to compose and make more music right from his PC. It was at this point that it all came together with the Internet
explosion. This allowed Joseph to meet other musicians and fans from around the world. He now has a site to place his songs and
share his music with the world. But through all this Joseph has never lost his burning desire to play in the United States so he
can fulfill his lifelong dream and share the God given talents he feels fortunate to have.
