"Where We're Goin & Where We Been" 2005 LP, 8 songs. Air play on WXRT Chicago.

Currently in studio working on 2nd album. (Spring 2007 Release)



Chicago's best rock musicians have rallied around singer-songwriter-rocker JOE LANASA.

ORIGINAL SONGS play out like rock & roll poems from the city, filled with intense passion. Lyrical stories like "Liberation," take the audience into the gripping life of a true hero & the lives that were influenced by his courage - sung with a rhaspy, rock & roll sound.

JOE LANASA has been playing local area clubs since the late 90’s and his sound has grown and evolved along with the diverse crowds he plays for. In his music can be heard a blend of influences; garage-band guitar-driven rock, punk, latin, and neo-spiritual rock anthems; with influences like early Springsteen, Jim Morrison to Van Morrison; Dylan, Marty Robbins, and Johnny Cash. None of which overshadow the emotion and style of his own heart and soul.

He and his band have an excellent following that is ever-growing in size and devotion. Some of their favorite venues have been: Fitzgerald's, Phyllis’ Musical Inn, the Abbey Pub & numerous Bucktown & Wicker Park venues in the Chicago area. This is an exciting new version of the band, consisting of Paul Bivans on drums, “Johnny 99” Flanagan on lead guitar, and Michael Krayniak on bass, accompanying Joe’s vocals and guitar. They are working on a new album which should be available in Spring of 2007. Look for them at clubs and festivals around the midwest this year!
