Our goal has been to write and produce songs that are in the classic style of Americana/Roots music. Our inspirations come from the artists that informed our musical tastes like Bob Dylan, The Band, and Neil Young and their contemporary equivalents, artists such as Chris Stapleton and John Prine.
The Distant Thunder began in NYC in 1992. The songs were completed in 2021. Joe and Marc wrote all eleven songs except for occasional input on three of the songs from our friends, songwriters Larry Gottlieb and Dan Sammartano. All instruments were played and recorded by Marc. All of the vocals are by Joe except for I’d Rather Be Dancing With You, which was done with a live band featuring the legendary Eric Weissberg writer and player of Dueling Banjos. Marc and Joe would like to thank music producer Jeanne Neary Look for her invaluable input on all aspects of this project.
