About
Having traversed a life spanning career moves as broad as commercial fisherman, yacht captain, whitewater raft guide, adventure sports photographer, graphic designer, college professor, entrepreneur and bank vice president, I think I may finally have enough stories and other material stored up to start writing my own songs down and stop clanking along the oddly derivative delta blues/folk and loopy sonic weirdness I've been cooking up for the past couple decades. I play mainly acoustic instruments, but I like the tension that happens when electric sounds, and found sounds intersect acoustic sounds. It's really Americana; it just flirts with electronica. I also write words, but less of them seem to find their way onto SoundCloud. https://soundcloud.com/joe10
