NYSMusic.com said, “Though they were the opening act, their performance put them at a level where they could have been mistaken as a co-headliner instead”
With his warm tenor and electrified acoustic alt-rock groove, Joe weaves tales that explore themes of love, heartache, relationships, and the world we live in. Joe proves that personal, thoughtful and compassionate music can touch people and move the world around us.
