An archaeologist by day,  Joe brings a skilled energy to the Alternative and Neo-folk music scene by night. Born with a passion for music, he was forever changed the day Chris Cornell literally cast his shadow over him at a concert. Joe takes inspiration from a mix of artists like Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, Muddy Waters, Jon Foreman, and Needtobreathe, just to name a few.



Joe got his start in Silvertongue, a hard rock band best known for winning Washington D.C.'s "Next Big Thing" Battle of the Bands in 2010. He’s since channeled his energy and passion into being a solo acoustic artist and contributing member of Signal Hill Band

Silvertongue - February 14, 2010

Along with performing original songs, Joe covers artists ranging from the Lumineers to Goo Goo Dolls to the Zac Brown Band. He is local to Northern VA, but hails originally from the UK.
