Creating waves on both sides of the Atlantic are the transcendental sounds of modern day one man band, Joe Driscoll. His revolutionary take on music is without boundaries. Effortlessly fusing hip-hop, reggae, soul, folk and roots rock to create a completely original and unique sound; an innovator not only for the genre defying music he creates, but for the groundbreaking way in which he performs it. A true renaissance man, Driscoll is a lone figure on stage and in the studio, yet is able to create the complete soundscape of a full band utilizing heavy vocal percussion, an array of instruments, a loop pedal, and a lot of imagination.
On a seemingly never ending world tour, the venues and acts Joe has worked with are as diverse as the sounds he creates. From coffee shops to theatres, bars to festivals, crowds are moved by his poignant lyrics, deep rhythms, personal storytelling and funky grooves. He has shared the stage with acts ranging from Gym Class Heroes to Regina Spektor, Coldcut to The Sugar Hill Gang at hundreds of venues and events in both the US and EUROPE. Recently confirmed for BIG CHILL, BESTIVAL and GLASTONBURY and as the headline LIVE act at LAKE OF STARS FESTIVAL (MALAWI, AFRICA), no matter the locale, from the uninitiated to music royalty, JOE inspires.
With the release of the album ORIGIN MYTHS having gained critical acclaim, Radio One airplay, sell out release shows in NY and London, and receiving an INDY AWARD for BEST SOLO ACT, the appeal of this one man magician/musician is undeniable. The overwhelming response from audiences, critics, and industry insiders makes it clear that the future is now.

' Gangsta got an iron lung!!!!’ Cee Lo (Gnarls Barkley)

‘Joe is the true essence of hip hop music!’ Speech (Arrested Development)

'Rooted in the American folk singer tradition of the travelling song smith a la Bob Dylan, but joining the dots with that most modern of folk forms, hip-hop. He's produced a delicious debut that will guarantee his mythic status for years to come.'
-- DJ Magazine 4.5/5 stars (Album of The Fortnight)

'This is a unique, inspiring take on hip-hop that makes youwant to dig out those old G. Love & Special Sauce albums, or indeed Beck's Mellow Gold... well worth your attention, as this guy is talented.' -- IDJ
