Hi. My name is Eric. I’m 63 playing since age 10 grew up on Hendrix Clapton Page and Beck (Jeff- lol) and always a Beatles fan. I learned blues from all the masters- the Kings Robert Johnson Willie Dixon and the rest and I thought everything that needed to be said in 12 bars or it’s many variations had been said.
Then I heard Joe. And saw him live in Atlanta. Wow! Was I wrong.
More importantly he has created a new genre. I call it “Joe.” I’m sorta kidding and sorta not. I met him at a meet and greet and I said thank you for taking the blues to a new place or something like that and he said he’s taken it beyond blues. I couldn’t agree more.
I hope he expands on that but it’s all in the music and I an so glad to have heard him live and I know we musicians are lucky to have another great musician to learn from and enjoy.
