Musician - Singer - Songwriter

 

Born in Muncie, Indiana, Joe grew up with a love and passion for music...singing along to 8-track recordings of Elvis, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and others.  He attended his first concert at the age of 8 at a county fair. It was Marty Robbins.  Later his older brother gave him a job helping deliver newspapers and every morning they would "Jam" to very loud rock music from the likes of Meatloaf, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen, REO Speedwagon, Survivor, Bob Seger, Journey, and many others.  He started playing keyboards in 8th grade and has been playing ever since.  

Joe graduated from Ball State University in 1994 majoring in Telecommunications and Computer Science.  He worked in Nashville, TN on several music videos from 1994 to 1995 but moved back to Indiana when his son was born in early 1996. When a daughter was born in 1997... Joe put his music and video production careers on hold and used his talent for computers spending many years as a software engineer / architect for major corporations.  

A couple years ago, Joe decided to learn to play guitar and his love of music flourished. He has played many one man acoustic shows at fairs, festivals and coffee houses.  He spent the last half of 2013 and early 2014 writing,  recording and producing an album with a full band along with local Co-Producer, Songwriter and Guitarist Todd Blower. 

Now residing in Greenfield, Indiana, Joe released his first album -The Littles -  on May 12, 2014. It is available worldwide on iTunes.
