Bio

Originally born and raised in Berlin, Germany, Joe was immediately exposed to a musical family. His grandfather was a Julliard trained trumpet player, and his father was an amateur guitarist. His passion was in art and from the age of three until the present he's been enjoying that talent. His mother was in the Air Force, and after his mother and father got divorced, Joe, his mom and brother relocated to San Antonio, Texas. He first got interested in the guitar at 14 after a friend talked him into buying a guitar over the summer. After a dabbling in a few bands, he decided to take the guitar more seriously and start writing. Joe originally planned to attend the Corcoran art school in D.C. before realizing that a career in art wasn't what he wanted. "I think people assume that because you're an artist you have to be some kind of nut job or something. I'm not, and I didn't want to be around a bunch of them."

After a short stint at Southwest Texas State in San Marcos, he moved back home to San Antonio. "I basically burned out on parting too much and managed to hurt some people along the way. It was time to re-think and restart." Once back in San Antonio, he dabbled in a few bands but still wasn't looking to music as a legitimate career.

Shortly there after Joe began to lose a considerable amount of weight and suffered from terrible stomach pain. "The pain would be so bad I could barely sleep." It was because of this, he was thrust into music full time. "I had to pay the rent. I could play my instrument well enough and I found out I could sing, so... with the help and direction of some close friends, I played to pay rent." This went on for almost 10 months before he was down to 124lbs. Joe was being fed intra-venously, and eventually, had surgery to remove part of his stomach. It was the time leading up to the surgery that he wrote and recorded a majority of the songs showcased on "A Day From Gone". Joe was lucky enough to have some very talented friends that offered their services to the album pro-bono like; Ruben V., Dave Fenley, and the fellas from Full Throttle. "That's how the band got the name. They were all good people, and it stuck."

Joe Woods And Good People are sure to be making some waves here shortly. With the band finally assembled including talented bassist and old friend, Justin Harrison, seasoned drummer Kyle Jackson as well as a new record available, and a Time Warner (thank you) distribution deal if you haven't heard... you will
