Review by Aaron Manogue
May 2011

Former Geisha guitarist Joe Matera recently released his solo single “Face Off,” which is an instrumental, all electric band concoction of plain simple fun. The guitar work that starts from the very beginning is the heart and soul of the song, carrying an uplifting and strong rhythm throughout the entire song. The winding solos and melodic background seem to paint a portrait of a story that picks up the pace and glides down the finely tuned riffs in a moment’s notice, reminding listeners of the days of classic rock. Rick Brewster of The Angels even made a special guest appearance on one of the track’s solos. Matera’s guitar talents are clean, crisp, and original, and make you wish the song wouldn’t end. But when it does, you just hit replay.

“Face Off” is out through Mercury Fire Music and available for purchase on iTunes. The track will also appear on Matera’s upcoming EP CD due later this year.
