Joe Piket as been described as "a more edgy Billy Joel", and "the Bruce Springsteen of Long Island". Joe's first CD, TEMPEST, charted well on CMJ, including # 1 on several radio stations in the tri-state area and nationally. Rave reviews appeared in Newsday, Good Times, Aural Fix, and L.I.E ., as well as many on-line publications. Father Time, Joe Piket's fourth CD release, centers around relationships between family members - parents and children, husbands and wives, etc. Most of the songs are new original material by Joe Piket, but there is also a cover of the Beatles classic, 'She's Leaving Home', with an updated musical arrangement and some new lyrics (as well as some lyrics 'borrowed' from a different Beatles song). There is also a beautiful new song co-written with (and sung by) long-time JP co-vocalist Sue M., 'Your Empty Skies', about a woman's attempts to 'reach' her husband as she watches him succumb to Alzheimer's. From the fiery opening electric guitar signature riff on 'Payin' The Price For Spring' to the final steel guitar flourish on 'Evelyn's Mix', (the alternate -acoustic - verson of the title track), the CD is a rich collection of instrumental and vocal textures, and lyrics that read like poetry.
