Waiting for an Earthquake EP



Joe was born just outside of Boston Mass, in a house that always had music playing. He was influenced by the music of his parents and started going to concerts at a young age. Taking time to play drums and piano, writing came later on. He didn’t pick up the guitar until the age of 18 and never thought of it as a career until college. “That’s when I realized that every school I had been to made me wonder if working 9-5 was really the life for me,” he says. After a couple years of playing open mics, small gigs and at parties, he realized that taking it further was next on the list.

“I like to think people like my music because it's honest. I’ve heard it described as smooth and relaxed vocals and emotional lyrics over strong chords. But I think more importantly, I would describe my music as my life. I write music to make people feel the way that I do, to
share what I'm going through. Some songs have always made me feel a certain way, only music can do that. My dream is to write songs that touch people in a way that nothing else can, to write a song that someone listens to every night before they go to sleep.”

“I love playing at shows and seeing people singing my lyrics. I write anything and everything that is on my mind. I try to capture a specific feeling with each song that someone will be able to relate to, the type of feeling you could get from a relationship, a broken heart or even a sunrise.”

“David Gray is one of my favorite artists ever; I think his lyrics are phenomenal. Howie Day has been very influential in terms of my live performance specifically in the way he holds nothing back. Dashboard Confessional has also been huge in influencing my lyrics. Their lyrics cover all sides of make-ups to break-ups better than anyone else.”
