Jos. R.'s Music

I was raised on the sounds of Motown Records. Prince has been the most impactful influence on my music. The southern soul of Stax Records -- especially Otis Redding -- has had a profound effect on my musicianship.

I sing and play various instruments, including acoustic guitar. Of course, this means I sometimes embarass myself at karaoke.

My favorite albums include the following.

Curtis Mayfield, "Superfly" (1972)

Stevie Wonder, "Talking Book" (1972)

Prince, "Purple Rain" (1984)

The Notorious B.I.G., "Ready to Die" (1994)

Remy Shand, "The Way I Feel" (2002)
