Music has the power to inspire, heal, and bring people together, and this is precisely what Joe has been doing for the past several years. Born and raised in Birmingham, Joe discovered his love for music at a young age, teaching himself how to play the piano at just six years old. However, it wasn't until he picked up a guitar at 14 that he found his true calling.
From that moment on, Joe was determined to pursue his passion for music. He formed his first band at 15 and quickly honed his songwriting skills, showcasing his versatility and musical prowess. Over the years, he has performed, written and produced music for various bands, establishing himself as a versatile and talented musician.
In his latest project, Joe has reunited with Bob Peach, with whom he first collaborated at 17 years old. This reunion has culminated in the release of "Optimistic State of Mind," an album that reflects Joe's musical journey and highlights his exceptional creative, writing, and production abilities. The album showcases Joe's ability to seamlessly blend various genres of music, including rock, pop, and blues, creating a unique sound that is all his own.
