Gino Joubert is the son of a musical legacy. His dad was a member of the legendary New Orleans band, “The Jokers.” After his dad was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, a fire was lit in Gino to continue the music legacy.
Unfortunately, an untimely break-up with his former band, The Sassafras Drifters in Atlanta, caused depression and Gino stepped away from music for over ten years. This, after having released Love Triangle which climbed to #1 on www.soundclick.com
Upon Gino’s return to music in 2020, he decided to dedicate a relentless pursuit to creating new music and finding the right session musicians to best complement his style of play. Using a very similar formula that Dave Matthews incorporated, he began to see almost immediate success as a solo artist.
With recent radio interviews in Louisiana, and impeccable reviews coming from London, and New Zealand, Gino aspires to bring back the classic rock sound.
Gino is also dedicating his plethora of music industry knowledge and contacts to begin spearheading educational services for young artists on how to navigate through the industry, and earn money while performing a passion in music.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
After being influenced by Pink Floyd, I always had a proud affinity towards music. I have always noticed how important music is in our everyday life.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Classic Rock artists, and a few R&B and Funk artists.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
The song came inspirational to me and played continuously in my head all day. It was as if I was being led by a force greater than myself to compose and write the song.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
I have a relentless pursuit to do every aspect of writing; composing, signing, arranging, and promoting my original music.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
This is so subjective in nature. Ego, if answering the question would say, ” Yes.” However, I believe I am near the top of all-around creating.
Gino Joubert Interview with Muzique Magazine
What are your plans for the near future?
To continue to work with the team I have assembled, and expand my musical library with new compositions. I signed a nonexclusive contract with Song & Film LLC., for synch placement. This has enabled me to be diversely creative with soundtrack scores.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shoutouts?
Jack Miele, my Producer, and Glory Reinstein from Song & Film. I would also like to thank every musician I have played with overtime to give me collaboration experience.
How can fans find you?
All major platforms such as YouTube, Itunes, Iheart, Amazon, etc.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself? (optional)
Promotion is more important than composing your material. People have to go all in on every aspect of their career in music, and or whatever their passion is in life.
