Joe Owusu Out With Debut

It is interesting, to see many-up and coming musicians entering into gospel music not withstanding the ?struggle? in the industry.

As the saying goes ?variety? is a spice of life? and gospel music lovers really cherished the growth in the industry. But what up-and-coming musicians ought to do is strive to come out with good songs to be able to match other musicians already in the industry.

With perseverance and dedication, a new artiste, Joe D. Owusu is out with debut, ?Yesu Wo Biribi Ma Me?.

The eight-track album is made up of very good and inspirational Methodist hymns and some songs written by Joe himself. All the songs on the album are in Fante and it?s just soothing to hear Fante blended with his unique and excellent voice in praise of God.

Joe started exploring his musical talents as a praise and worship leader at the Methodist Church of the Resurrection, Kpehe, where he worships. He played that role very well to the admiration of both leaders and church members.

Two elders of the church, who are currently his producers acknowledge his musical talents and decided to assist him come out with his debut album. It is true that when God blesses he adds no sorrow, because finding producers have been the headache of many up-and-coming musicians and even the renowned ones.

Being a mechanic by profession, Joe attends to his music career in the evenings. Tiring as it may seem, he deems it as service to God.

By the songs on the album, particularly ?Owoo Biribi Ma Me? which is the title track, Joe is encouraging his listeners that God has something for everyone no matter the person?s background.

With ?Mene Wo De?, Joe is admonishing believers to narrate their experiences to God rather than man since there is nobody who really cares apart from God. There is also no pin in trying to fight the life battles themselves because they can not.

Other songs on the album include ?Adekye Wohoe?, ?Yenti Na Obaye?, ?Gyidze Ne Twere No?, ?Mekra Ye Osoro Hene Ayew? and ?Akwan Nyinaa Mu Meye Wodze?, ?Amansan Nyinaa?.

The songs on the album cannot be left out in times of worship and meditation. The lyrics and instrumentation have been well blended to give those wonderful songs.

With his debut album, Joe is registering his presence on the gospel scene very strongly.
