Joe The Bluesman lives out his convictions and lays out his soul in his music. You can hear in the way he sings and you can feel it in the way he plays the guitar. The new king of blues, Joe is on a mission to bring blues back to the forefront of the music scene. "I feel that a lot of the quality has left the music these days," Joe The Bluesman says. "I want to make great quality music that moves people, and that will be the driving force behind the music's success."
Joe recently released his latest single "I Was Born American," on April 15th, 2020 to all major streaming platforms. A lyric video is planned to be released to the single this fall.
Joe The Bluesman aka Joe Campobasso was born in Kansas City in 1954. Early in his childhood, his parents moved to Huntington Beach, California where he would spend most of his youth. A natural musician, he was already playing the violin by the third grade, and by high school, he was playing in the school's band. Joe also played bass in a band during his teen years known as "Pimit Creek," who mainly played CSN&Y covers. Joe's musical influences include Count Basis and Sarah Vaughn. After high school, he put music as a profession aside stating "I have always had an interest in music but I had to put music as a side interest, like so many people I took the time to raise my family. Three years ago I said goodbye to my day job to make music my number one priority."
