Joe McGuinness is a composer, performer, songwriter, recording artist, stop-motion animator, 3D artist, player of all things, Dad, quiet talking, loud singing, loveable grump and much more . Yes that was him on that "reality" TV show. Weird. Give his music a chance and you won't be disappointed. His latest album, "TEETH" is a FREE download in our store. What do you have to lose?
Joe has released 3 professional studio albums, 1 live album, a slew of weird demos and bootlegs, and for the past few years has been working on a very ambitious multimedia 4-part album series, due out in 2022.
Musically, Joe loves pushing his creative boundaries. Riding the line between commercial success and “you went too far”. Walking the tight rope, falling midway, but sticking the landing. Alongside his incredible trio, their favorite thing to do, when performing live, is “crash the train” (but somehow still make it safely to the station). If you’ve seen Joe live, you’ve probably been mesmerized by these magical moments.
Lyrically, in the heart of his songs, is a sincerity that grips listeners in a way that is relatable. Joe can make you smile, cry, sigh and laugh all in the same song. It’s easy to be surprised at his profundity.
He is currently hard at work, putting the finishing touches on the aforementioned ambitious album series, and could not be more excited for YOU to hear it. (And to finally be done with it). In the meantime, he has written enough material in the meantime for the next 2 or 3 albums.
Joe LOVES to hear from fans, who can reach him here or on social media (links below) and is also available for bookings through our “Contact” page
