Joe Colwell is a Singer-Songwriter and Guitarist raised in Montclair, NJ. Influenced by artists like George Michael, Bruce Springsteen, Jason Isbell, Marcus King, Oasis, Sam Fender, John Mayer, Marvin Gaye, Mac Miller, and Elvis Presley, Joe brings a unique edge to his original music– his sound infused with elements of Country, Folk, Rock, Soul, and Americana music. 


Growing up with English parents, Joe had his first performance at a school talent show at age 11, playing “Skyfall” from the Soundtrack of the James Bond Film. However his true love for music came when he fell in love with the guitar that same year. 


Joe began to play more seriously at the age of 15, when he played every weekend outside at bars, inns, restaurants, and beer gardens. It was here where he found his love for performance– a love that he carried with him at notable venues like the Wellmont Theater with Brian Kirk and the Jirks, the Bitter End in NYC, Summerfest in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and the main stage at Montclair Pride in 2023. 


An advocate for the community, Joe has worked with MFEE, and Entrenadores Escolares, a mentoring and tutoring group for children of immigrants, helping students to assimilate to a new country and environment. 


Joe is currently majoring in Music Engineering at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, where he plays original music with a band, San Amaro, and studying with Delta Rae guitarist, singer, and songwriter Ian Holljes.


Joe is excited to play at the Outlaw Music Festival this summer in the company of legends Willie Nelson, and Bob Dylan, and can't wait to see what comes next!
