My name is Joe, I started playing guitar when I was about 7 years old and I've been more commited to music than anything else in my life. Lately I've been writing a lot of new material and would deffinately need to get a band together. I have mainly just been playing solo shows around the local sioux falls area and haven't played in a while. I had, well, might still have a record contract with a friends studio down in KS. I recorded an album called the return of the prodigal about three years ago. It's pretty decent considering I was only 15 and we had limited time... when I say litmited time I mean 2 days, and that was to cut 10 trax. anyway that is a breif history of me.

some of my influences include, bruce springsteen, led zeplin, janis joplin, the doors, U2, teh blue man group, jimi hendrix, stevie ray vaughn, eddie van halen,...... it might sound like I'm into the whole 80's but rok thing bit honest to god I'm not, I would say that my music sounds a lot more like the shins, death cab for cutie, bright eyes, alothough it's not really emo, my lyricism is the most important feature of my music, very mtophorical and in depth.


The only thing that I've had recently is an alvarez acoustic electric guitar.
