The best kept secret in music


"Mo Pitkins-NYC, NY"

"Sounds like Johnny Cash...with a dash of Bob Dylan" -Roxana Maroquin - TimeOut NY

"The Bug Jar--Rochester, NY"

"Newspaper Joe doesn't just perform - he shakes the house and brings it down.
It's impossible to stand there and idly watch his live show. Take a look
around the room, and it's a pretty sure bet you'll see people singing along,
clapping their hands, stomping their feet, or even jumping on stage to grab
an instrument and join the irresistable rhythm." --Peter Borrelli - Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

Feeling a bit camera shy


Channeling ghosts, demons, saints and sinners, Newspaper Joe emerged from the hills and valleys of Otsego County’s own Oneonta, New York. Developing his early talents as a rural contemporary singer/songwriter from a previous project "I Work for No Man", Newspaper Joe stomps the floors with his solo acoustic folk-rock thrillers incorporating glass shattering brilliance, attitude, and solid performance.

His current released album “Dr. Lazarus Gin, Mercy, and Sin” offers an enjoyable ride on an undiscovered journey through surprising melodic twists, hungry encores, and sharp taste for musical integrity.
