Joe is emerging onto the music scene with his sultry voice that is mesmerizing people all over the country. This singer/songwriter is working on his self-titled debut CD with producers Rick “Steel”, Frankie Vinci and Paul Wonder. His eclectic mix of sounds send listeners into a sensory overload that is sweeping them off their feet. With a captivating stage presence, Joe is charming fans all over while winning their hearts.


Joe has been involved with music from a young age. Performing at local events, charities, hospitals, and parties made Joe truly love being on stage. He started writing music at the age of 12 and has continued to develop his talents day by day. Music was always an outlet for Joe: “I was tested with adversity at a young age and music became my everything. I love writing and performing. It just feels right.” Throughout high school Joe performed wherever he could – gaining a fan base at an early age. He was always a part of theater and concerts, winning awards and receiving publicity for his talents.


When Joe is not writing, recording or in front of a microphone, he coaches high school athletes – a high school football team at Stepinac High School in White Plains, New York. Coaching is just another aspect of Joe’s life that he is passionate about.


“An artist clearly on his way to superstardom,” says TV personality, Clive Swersky. Joe was recently a special guest on Clive’s TV show Alive with Clive and is in Clive’s Alive with Clive Top 20 where fans vote for their favorite artist to be featured on a compilation CD to benefit people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa. Right now Joe is number 4 moving his way up the Top 20!


Joe has also received national exposure for acting. He was featured in the MTV promotional shoot for the film Prom Night, starring Brittany Snow. After that, he made small appearances on the hit TV shows Gossip Girl (CW), Lipstick Jungle (NBC) and Kings (NBC).


Joe has performed in front of SOLD-OUT concerts at Fordham University, and at intimate venues all over NYC.  He has also opened for Lucas Prata, Judy Torres and Brenda K. Starr at a 103.5 KTU event. This is just the beginning for this fresh, new artist who is sure to become a household name.


Joe also holds the distinct honor of having sung the National Anthem at the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, before the start of a basketball game between the Phoenix Suns and the New York Knicks on January 21, 2009.  Here’s the video clip of Joe singing the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden:




“Fall Apart” is a superb touching romantic song about the mental conflicts troubling a man in a relationship who has cheated on the woman he loves, is not sure if she knows, wants to confess, will do anything to get her back because without her he will “fall apart,” and doesn’t know how she will react to his breach of fidelity when he tells her or realizes she does know.


Here are a few lines of the lyrics from the song:


I don’t know what you’re gonna say

Maybe you already know

Well I don’t expect you to stay with me

But I don’t want to let you go . . . .


And when the rain starts falling on my window

I just fall apart, ooh baby I fall apart

Thinking about you
