JOE'S GUIDED MEDITATION
A video commissioned by Milwaukee Repertory Theater, written and filmed at the height of 2020 quarantine (but it's funny, promise). Lyrics by Kellen Blair; music and performance by Joe (and the various lengths of his facial hair).
YOU GOT THIS
An original Kinosian & Blair tune from the concert series Broadway Unlocked. Joe apologizes for the haircut but stands by the song. Orchestrations by Macy Schmidt.
THE OTHER CHRISTMAS SHOES
When Santino & Jessica Fontana say they want to make a music video for one of your darker comedic songs, you say YES and CAN WE HELP and then they say NO WE GOT IT because they're THAT AWESOME. Blessings of the season!
