Fools of Fortune is a band formed by Joe & Antonina Marrero, centered around the release of their first album, “Ukulele Loveboat”. Ukulele Loveboat is an album about love and life. A beautiful collection of love songs and duets that emerged as part of a collaborative writing effort with Joe Marrero and his wife, Antonina.
When listening to this album, It’s easy to see their intense love shining through in every song.
All duets were sung in collaboration with the extremely talented female vocalist, Nicole Briglio. Nicole Briglio was also among the female vocalists who performed on The Great Fraud’s “American Dream” album. Nicole is an extremely talented singer who brings an almost dreamy, crisp, and authentic female vocal sound to “Ukulele Loveboat” which perfectly complements Joe’s more gritty, deep, and ghostly vocal work. The Fools of Fortune’s “Ukulele Loveboat” is set to be an instant classic and a groundbreaking testament to music’s potential to emphasize beauty, love, and simplicity as an artform.
