From Ithaca, NY. An artist, guitarist, painter, fiddler, and believer in all things possible. Born to a songwriting mother, Joe is a musician/magician who embodies hope, cynicism, darkness, and beauty. Live, he is fierce, creative and funny as hell.
You’ll be pulled in by the magic and musical world that he creates and you’ll end up in the moment, celebrating together with the rest of the audience. His music embraces the universal, connects us, is masterful and downright fun. At the end of the night, you’ll likely leave inspired, taking home a renewed sense of what’s possible.
From the first strum of his 1948 Gibson, through stories, slide guitar, fiddle, and an unwavering commitment to his art, you’ll be drawn in and deeply moved by his music. It happens every time. Through his spirit and playfulness and his unwavering courage to be himself, you will be moved in ways you didn’t expect. He is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
Always growing, he loves what he does. Featured in the documentary film, “Blue Tattoo” and the 2016 Artist in Residence at the Folk Alliance International Conference, Joe is a Rockefeller grant recipient, whose songs are included in the new Rise Again songbook, and the upcoming film, “Brooklyn in July.” Joe is signed to Tamulevich Artist Management.
