Joseph C Guess grew up in a music family but didn’t realise his music talent until much later on in his life. Although he didn’t discover his music talent at first, writing poetry became an outlet for him as a teenager.
“I didn’t appreciate music earlier on probably because it reminded me of being the only son who wasn’t musically talented. I was more into sports back then. I think at the age of 14 years old was when I started listening and appreciating music.” says the artist
He started writing poetry in 2020 during the epidemic to release stress from this nightmare in this world. Then later that year him and his wife planned a vacation to Daytona Beach, Florida to celebrate their 9th wedding anniversary and 13 years together.
He came up with an idea to get an unexclusive lease on an instrumental beat from J Grooves and then he wrote a song called LaRisa.
“I wrote this song,” LaRisa” after my wife’s name to dedicate to her for our 9th wedding anniversary and it became so well liked that people including my wife told me that I have to show this song to the whole world. I hired a musician named Rex to sing it how I wanted, then the rest was history. I had the song made in a poem format on a canvas to read to her then played the song. She kept it together but was a little emotional during process. She heard the song and told me in a belligerent voice to share this with the world now!! So this is exactly what I intend on doing at this moment. I hope the people will like it.” says Joseph C
LaRisa will release on all formats on June 4,2021.
