• That Joe Payne ~ By Name By Nature CD

Pre order for release on August 7th 2020

Recorded at the legendary Lodge Recording Studios(famous for producing hits for acts such as Kim Wilde, Catrina and the Waves, and more recently Temples and Alan Moore), the album hosts songs like What is the World Coming To, exploring the joys and difficulties of growing up gay in a hetero society. Then there’s the irresistible Love (Not the Same), which features vocals by Progressive Music Award winner Ms Amy Birks and is about being in a relationship with someone with whom you have nothing in common. Weaving triumph from trauma, the title track By Name. By Nature turns Payne’s experiences – receiving hate mail from disgruntled Enid fans, being put down as a small boy by a mean teacher, and being gaslit as an adult – into an astonishing prog/pop mélange. Nice Boy explores the pressures of being put on a pedestal as the great new hope of an aging musical genre, with virtuosity and wit.

"By Name. By Nature. is many things, but boring isn’t one – it’s a resounding success."

Dave Everley, Prog Magazine
