Joe grew up in the small town of Tuscumbia, Ala. near the banks of the Tennessee River. He started playing guitar when he was 15 on a cheap, old fender he borrowed from a friend. A year later, he started banging around the old piano that sat in his living room. He fell in love with both and quickly discovered he had more of an interest in music than he realized.
Joe found ways to play for churches and gatherings and friends throughout high school and college until he moved to Houston, TX to work as a youth pastor at Christ the King Presbyterian Church. He has since found a home in Houston with his wife Leah and his two kids Ellie and Sam, and he is now pursuing a full-time career in music.
Joe wrote and recorded his debut album in March of 2015 called "The Risen King." His southern folk roots come into play on this eleven song project that tells the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. Joe is currently in the process of writing his second album and hopes to record it soon.
