Joseph Eid is an amazing musician that has really mastered the craft of telling stories through song. The pop-folk singer’s newest release Watch It Fall is sure to receive accolades from music lovers and industry insiders. In recent years, news of Eid’s musical genius has certainly captured the attention of the press. American Songwriter Magazine featured him in its Best New Music column, and he was named as one of the 100 Hottest Live Unsigned Artists by Music Connection Magazine.
Eid demonstrated his passion for music early in life. Although he was raised in a strict traditional home that saw time in the arts as something for hobby alone, Eid’s faith in his talents led him to pursue music more seriously. He moved to New York City only to later relocate to Los Angeles where he would later fall under the tutelage of world-renowned guitarist/songwriter David Lamar. Eid began writing sings on a regular basis and perfecting his craft as a songwriter, which eventually led to the release of his debut EP Cardiac Output.
Watch It Fall is a very colorful tune that is a deep portrayal of the challenges, joy, and hard times of everyday life. Eid’s lyrics are brilliantly written from the perspective of someone living in apartment building longer than expected. Watch It Fall touches upon an ordeal we all face in dealing with the outer world and how we compartmentalize the people we see daily. Musically, Watch it Fall is led by some charming acoustic guitar rhythms with an overlay of electric guitar and backing harmonies. Patrick McPherson filmed and directed a wonderful video for the song that works perfectly with its theme. Watch It Fall by Joseph Eid has a story in it for each one of us, mainly because it is our story.
