Joseph Mortela

Raw, unplugged, innovative, a one man force to be reckoned with, Joseph Mortela’s unique and versatile style of compositions has been written for movies, commercials, film, and television. He does the acoustic artist bit better than most, but what sets him apart are his inventive creations from Alternative Rock to Country and R&B.  He’s like a flamingo guitarist with a bard’s voice and a poet’s sensibility. He is currently working on his second album “Simple Lesson” which is due to be released in 2014.

His newly released acoustic album “Unsettled Rain” now available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and through Princess Blue is a mixture of slow-tempo to mid-tempo music with a mellow to dramatic and sad to love, emotional scene description.  

These authentic acoustic melodies say sit back, relax and enjoy the piercing voice of Joseph Mortela and the satisfying vibes of his guitar. The sounds of his acoustic originals have soul dwelling lyrics which create songs that are smoky, yet clever. While he embraces his not so humble guitar crafting rhythms and melodies together for your listening pleasure. Close your eyes and listen it’s not your common cover song, but good old fashion songwriting and performing, delivered with enviable aplomb.
