In the first installment of an ongoing segment highlighting the solo work of Noon Fifteen’s band members, Dan Cole speaks with guitarist Joe Massa about his debut solo release, Conundrum. Joe muses on the lessons and challenges of taking on every part of the recording process, from writing music without vocals, to performing all of the instruments, to recording and mixing the music himself. He also dives into the conundrum (see what we did there?) of titling songs without lyrics, and how he turned to a word invented by his toddler and a formative experience from his teen years for inspiration.
