Long Island's Joe Piket and The Storm Release Everything is Different on Fredsson Records
By: Allure Media Entertainment Group
Performing and sometimes collaborating with the likes of Chuck Berry, Leon Russell, Jason Bonham, Dee Snyder, Richie Cannata (Billy Joel, Beach Boys), Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett, Roger Daltry), Schuyler Deale (bassist with Billy Joel and Michael Bolton, among others), Peter O'Brien (Orleans, Edgar Winter), Mick Gaffney, Renaissance, Randy Jackson, Damon Johnson, and Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge, Joe has always lived up to expectations.
Now, displaying the musical versatility of Billy Joel and Paul McCartney by adapting his music to a variety of styles, Piket, the son of internationally acclaimed composer Frederick Piket, jumps in with his eclectic album release; Everything Is Different. And Everything is Different hits the bull's eye every time.
The record features eight tracks of primarily original songs, all in different styles. Piket pushes the envelope by taking chances most musicians are afraid to take, displaying his creativity by employing a wide variety of genres on one album. Those genres range from Doo- Wop, Americana, Prog-rock, Blues Rock, and Reggae to a Jazz Standard. It's courageous – but It works.

We further inquired of Joe, what is your songwriting process? "I get lyric and story ideas from reading, from lectures, and from people and situations I encounter. Musically, I usually begin with a riff or a chord progression. I have what I call my "wall of ideas" where I have a lot of snippets of paper pasted and tacked on there.
