The musical act Distant People is the brainchild of UK DJ and producer Joey Silvero. A former DJ in the vibrant Midlands Drum and Bass scene, Joey caught the House Music bug while running the now defunct record store Fat Grooves. As he began to DJ in House venues like Miss Moneypenny’s and Passion’s Red Room he was drawn to the inevitable path of musical production. Joey developed a connection with two fantastic song writers- Tasita D’Mour and Patrick Chappell. These two talented veterans have had a great deal of influence on Joey’s musical works.

Joey’s first major release, “Just Sing” on Foliage Records was met with critical praise and commercial success and was a featured track on the Defected Miami Compilation 2009. Joey currently has a slew of new releases on Large, Purple, Sole Channel, Seasons, Soulheaven, Metrogroove and Tribe. He can be heard regularly as a DJ on SSR radio and Djs regularly in the UK & abroad.

One of joey’s biggest s projects is Sister Pearl, set up with Tasita d’mour and Patric Lewis. The sister pearl music is a blend of deep house with African rhythms, the first release was Bang the drum which features an incredible remix from Manoo. There are 3 more Sister pearl tracks to follow bang the drum, titles include And jump,Hear The Calling & Feel it.
