Though Wasn’t It Pretty is Stickley’s first solo release, he has been no stranger to recordings and live performance. Three albums were released in the early part of the 21st Century under the name Joe Stickley’s Blue Print. He also produced a keepsake a couple years back with his partner Sean Canan of their ongoing weekly performances Sunday nights at the Irish pub John D. McGurk’s in the Soulard area of St. Louis. That duo, Stickley & Canan, now augmented by bassist Ryan Kennedy, are already planning a follow-up album for later this year. But Wasn’t It Pretty flows entirely from Stickley’s brain, a collection of five songs connected by their awareness of the ways dreams and hopes motivate people.
