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."

Joe the Bluesman gets bluesy with Ernie Tubbs

Joe the Bluesman takes a country western honky tonk standard and turning it into a heartfelt blues song of lost love and loneliness.

A couple years ago, I got a call from, Derick Smith, a great cousin of Ernie Tubbs congratulating me on my EP release.  In our conversation, he introduced me to the song I WALK THE FLOOR OVER YOU" indicating that he thought it would be a good song cover in a blues style!  I did my research discovering that this is considered to be the song that started the "HONKY TONK" sound and saloons in Nashville.  WE thought it would be fun to do as a duet, unfornatley time and geography has keep that from happening.

So I went into the studio to make the single myself, just acoustic guitar and vocals, completed in 2020 It is now set for release.  Joe states that he has  walked the floor of lost love personally in the past.  "I think this is an emotion everyone has experienced, so I want to put that anxiety and feeling of loss into the song for everyone to feel"

We think Joe has created that feeling of longing into the fiber of this one time dance song!
