“I just write whatever comes out of me,” says Joe Clark, vocalist and acoustic guitarist, “all I ever want with my music is to make that connection”. Joe has been building a steady following with his down-home, “come as you are” authenticity, releasing music that his fans call “relatable” and “just what the world needs”.
While Joe’s sound has evolved over the years, his approach to songwriting has remained the same. He’s found life-long inspiration in artists like Chris Knight, Jason Isbell, and Chris Stapleton, and spends a lot of his time writing in the woods of Henry County, Kentucky. “It’s a good place to escape, these particular woods have raised me and gotten me through the best and worst parts of my life so far” Joe says. “Some songwriters can make up stories for songs and tell them well enough to make you believe it. I’m just the opposite, I don’t do fairytales or make believe, I only know how to write about my life experiences, from my own point of view”.
“The truth is that sometimes the reality of life is tough to put into words,” Joe mentions about his recent release, “Battlefield”. “I strived to capture a tough feeling that I think we all have at times, the feeling of being unsure, frustrated, desperate, on edge, just struggling to keep up.” Joe’s followers often comment about how his music represents how we all live, feel and see ourselves. He has a very special knack for storytelling, which turns into music that you just feel in your soul.
Joe doesn’t go at this music thing alone. He’s joined on stage by guitarist and long-time friend Justin Dwayne Chappell. They’ve been playing together for the last ten years, a decade spent challenging one another and growing together, to make music that people can love and connect with.
