Raised in Ojai, California, Joseph Luca is a progressive artist and songwriter whose music examines love, vulnerability, sexual fluidity, and one’s internal sense of freedom against the will of a repressive society. For fans of Prince, Jeff Buckley, and Miguel, Joseph Luca brings sensual and vulnerable narratives with Pop sensibility to Alternative Soul. Having headlined and sold out The Troubadour, to performing with Mike Posner and Haley Reinhart, all the way to performing with Mak J at EDC, Luca’s stage presence and energy are electric and leave his fans feeling euphoric and free.
Now, Luca returns with the announcement of a brand new EP, the first in a three-part EP series, entitled PART 1: Ouroboros (Life), due November 11 via ONErpm. PART 1: Ouroboros (Life) examines the full evolution of an individual coming into their full power and acceptance of pansexuality and living their life as their truest self through a metaphorical shedding/cycle of “life, death, and rebirth.”
This first EP encapsulates the progression of an individual who’s had to find the power within sexual fluidity regardless of all the ups and downs it may come with in everyday life. Regardless of the setbacks, they always find the courage it takes to go out in the world and fearlessly pursue love at whatever cost despite all the barriers set in place by society and its often-repressive nature. This world has a way of casting an illusion that we all must fit in or suffer in silence while offering us hierarchical labels that come with its own set of predetermined privileges and consequences. Joseph Luca’s music is here to encourage the idea that to refuse this offer and to transcend these bounds reveals the universal nature of love itself. We are all simply here to have a human experience.
Luca self-wrote and produced the entirety of his first EP, with the exception of “Green Lights,” which was produced by Alex Casnoff (Zella Day). The EP was also mixed and mastered by Steve Dresser (Gwen Stefani, Kim Petras, Noah Cyrus, Fergie, Lauv).
Alongside unveiling details on his forthcoming EP, Luca additionally shares a new cut of the project, a single entitled “Nowhere.”
