We love Joseph Luca’s vibe. He just released his song “Full Time Lover” and we are just over here dancing along. What’s even more impressive is that he played all of the instruments in the song. We talked to him about Prince, his inspirations, and obviously, the new song.
Chloe Chaidez is whispering to me the entire time we talk, she needs to save her voice for the show. She whispers, “My dad was a musician, he was a drummer so he introduced me to a lot of great bands. I was a gymnast so we’d have these long drives to my gym and he’d play records and it was something I really gravitated towards.”
I didn’t listen to Prince a lot growing up. I started listening to him in college. Then as I grew to love him and his music he helped me understand myself. I was always kind of weird, and I always wanted to be like every other girl in my school. Even after college when I started internships and new jobs, I never fit in, but I’d try so hard to fit in. The one person who could finally help me accept all the weirdness in the world and not care what a single soul thought about me was Prince. Not a lot of girls my age are quite as fond of Prince as I am, but I just found him to be one of the most unique characters I’d ever seen. I dressed as him for Halloween a couple years ago and I felt so empowered. He became a symbol of me celebrating my unique identity and embracing my quirks in a way no one else could’ve taught me.
