MORE FROM SUNDANCE

Joe and Schmoyoho (aka Michael Gregory who wrote the song) perform It’s Fantastic live at Participant Media’s Sundance party: Watch it on Hitrecord.

Joe also performed with Peppina a song called La Belle et la Bête. I haven’t seen a clip of the full performance yet, just short snippets.

The Rolling Stone has another write up of the Sundance premiere of Hitrecord On TV with a little more info about the three episodes that were screened.

HITRECORD ON TV: SUNDANCE REVIEW

The New York Times enjoys individual parts of the Hitrecord on TV but accuses Joseph of hogging the spotlight and using the show as vanity project to narcissistically prove he is a polymath. They also have a dig at his singing abilities. Classy.

'LET'S PUT ON A SHOW! I'LL MAKE..'

The Miami Herald loves pretty much everything about the show:
