Joe Newtz, a solo musician from Beaver, Pennsylvania, has been writing rhythmic and engaging songs for over twenty years. 'I just write songs about how I feel at the time,' says Joe, a self-trained musician and vocalist.
'I grew up on my mom's Tom Jones records and I had the handkerchief act down pat at nine years old,' he kidded. His influences range as wide as Genesis and The Outlaws to Luther Vandross and Incubus, although he admits his sound is perhaps most similar to one of his most inspiring and favorite bands - Toad the Wet Sprocket.
While most of the songs are acoustic-based, the music is elevated by unexpected melodic twists and turns which display the diversity of his influences. His unique, resilient voice and accessible lyrics convey a yearning for spirituality and social relevance, yet his music certainly wouldn't sound out of place on your favorite modern-rock radio station.
