 A west coast export making his way south, Joe The Bluesman is a rising star with his one-man electric blues show. Skoli of Skope Magazine described him as "a rocker who is a bit older and tamer, a wild man of SoCal transversing the country in his RV with his one-man electric blues show." 

Joe released his first E.P "Seasons," on December 3rd. The lead single "Ol Black Cat," has gained the bluesman quite a bit of recognition and streams already. Tuned Loud Magazine stated the following after reviewing the single, "The single and furthermore Joe The Bluesman comes from a hard fought musical journey. A journey which resolves itself with deeply wrought riffs, lingering melodies and enveloping grooves. These essential layered elements are built on a subliminal undertow, in which every note conveys emotion and no inflection is wasted on unwanted frills and gloss."

 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."  

 To date, Joe has released one E.P seasons and is currently promting and planning a small tour to promote the album further.
