Description

Joe Firstman has been a guy who has toiled in near obscurity but has had a fairly high profile career in the music business for almost two decades now. I suspect that’s about to change. He was, for almost a decade the band leader for Carson Daly’s late night show where he enlisted the likes of Kamasi Washington and Thundercat, and also put together other bands with people like Carl Broemal of My Morning Jacket and Slim Gambill of Lady Antebellum before we knew who they were. He’s opened for Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Willie Nelson. All of this is to say, that this native North Carolinian has been developing his chops, both as a songwriter and a bass player, all this time, and he’s about to bust out large with The Cordovas. They’re a little bit country, a little bit southern rock, and a lot Bakersfield sound.
