“I always saw the value in both singles and albums. Each format matters.”

Joe Bosso

My parents were both in the business, so I was exposed to a lot of music at a very young age. My mother would go around the house singing songs, and there was one that really stuck with me. For years I didn’t know the name of it. Later on, I asked her, ‘Mom, what was that song you sang about the Russian clouds?’ She was like, ‘What?’ As it turned out, the song was But Not For Me.

[Sings] “’They’re writing songs of love, but not for me/ I’ve found more clouds of gray than any Russian play – can guarantee.’ As a kid, I just thought it had something to do with Russian clouds. It’s always stayed with me, obviously, because of my mother. One day I’m going to record it.”
