Joseph Mancuso has been a semi-professional independent musician in spite of "real life" since 1995.

Up through 2008, the bulk of Mancuso's writing and performing of original music was done as part of the Michigan-based eclectic rock project North, but his work as a composer, arranger, performer, and studio engineer has touched a diverse array of projects over the years.

Now, relocated on the East Coast, he focuses his grass-roots solo project on sharing a mix of new creations, unreleased relics, wild experiments, and thoughts on the art.

His latest crazy idea was the launch of JoCoAlbMo (Joe's Concept Album Month) in 2016.
