“Martina and I have seen so much life, made new friends and heard so many stories from the time we’ve spent in bars all across the nation playing music. I think that is really what this EP is about. It is the life events we’ve witnessed or experienced under the neon lights. The heartbreak (Hangover) to getting over the heartbreak (Rhinestoned) to finding that one who is perfect for you (Easy To Love) and expressing that love/affection (Brighter Than Neon).” ~ Joe Costa

“It was a blast working on this EP with Joe & Martina. To me, it perfectly reflects their growth and years of honing ‘their sound’ with genuine well-crafted songwriting and production elements that pay homage to the past while keeping a firm foothold in the present. I hope country fans love this as much as I do!” ~ Ben Watts, Co-Producer

When shows came to a standstill in 2020, Joe & Martina decided to record some music to stay creative. This song collection perfectly represents what they’ve experienced as people and the growth they’ve shared as artists. It has true country roots that people know and expect from their music, while also allowing them to experiment with sounds like never before. Easy To Love is the perfect marriage of today’s music and the classic country sounds the couple grew up on.

  1. Brighter Than Neon (Joe Costa, Dustin Huff, Ray Fulcher)

I'm Patti. Rock music is my first love. Country came later, but once I was in, I was all in. I'm a history geek, so I love learning about classic country and anything attached to it. You might find me strolling the cemeteries of Nashville, having silent conversations with the songwriters and artists that shaped this amazing genre. I'm an amateur genealogist with over 20,000 people on my family tree. I'm a Buffalo, New York girl living in a Nashville, Tennessee world with my husband and my furry kids. My real kid is an adult and lives in New York with her own three daughters. I'm addicted to SongPop and I don't care to enter rehab to fix that. If you ask me about myself, I'll tell you I have an eight-year old mind, a 77-year old soul and a middle-aged body. I'm a mess. :)
