Album Notes
"One and Only" is the first single from Joseph Eid's forthcoming EP 'Watch It Fall' which is set for release in early 2017. Joseph Eid's album HUMAN (released at the end of 2013) garnered considerable buzz and was featured in American Songwriter Magazine's 'Best New Music' section during release week. The artist was also named one of the 'hottest 100 live unsigned artists' 3 years in a row by Music Connection Magazine.

"One and Only" displays pastoral beauty with delicate, emotionally lush instrumentation and intricate but relatable lyrics that have become Eid’s trademark. The song seamlessly blends sharp, melodic pop lyricism with traditional folk sensibilities evoking folk troubadours both past and present. The infectious hook "would you be, would you be my one and only" makes the song instantly unforgettable and one you want to play again and again. Joseph Eid (vocals and acoustic guitar) is accompanied by a most seasoned and exceptional band made up of Vern Monnet (electric guitar and pedal steel), Lynn Coulter (percussion/drums) and Steve Nelson (bass). The track is co-produced and engineered by Brian Soucy (who worked with Joseph Eid's HUMAN). Mastering is by Gavin Lurssen.

The song subject deals with finding devotion and true lasting love in the backdrop of a big city where instant gratification is the norm. The artist observes a world where bridges are being burned and love is being "picked up and (tossed) out like trash." In a place where the "city lights will lead you right to all your hearts delights," the artist confesses that "I found a new thrill but I found it won't fill that craving for the next best thing and I'm tired of spinning around this fire..." He is singing to a soul mate, one he has found or one he is hoping for when he asks "so would you be, would you be my one and only?" The song points to the contrast between love and lust and describes a "longing for growing endlessly.."

In a world of instant gratification, online dating, and fast love, is there still hope for the "One and Only."

- Indie Music Reviews

"He’s a songwriter who draws on life experiences from both the interior and exterior vantage point."
- Indie Artist Alliance

"He is a modest artist armed with a young man's persona sings and performs songs the way they were meant to be sung - confidently avoiding any over the top vocal “showboating”."
