Meet Joe


 

“Real-time acoustic guitar solos, filled with so much springy counterpoint that sometimes it's hard to believe he's playing alone.”

 -New York Times

 

"Breathtaking electric and acoustic guitar virtuosity"
-Guitar Player Magazine

 

"A jaw-dropping virtuoso"
-NPR

 

"In a city of monster guitar players, Joe Robinson is a dragon slayer."
-Nashville Scene

 

Joe Robinson is an Australian guitar virtuoso and singer/songwriter adored by a global audience for his world-class musicianship and laid-back Aussie charm.

 

Based in the US since 2010, 31 year old Robinson has established himself as one of the pre-eminent guitar virtuosos of his generation, being featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, NPR & praised by a who’s-who of legendary guitar players including Tommy Emmanuel, Steve Vai, Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Steve Lukather, Albert Lee, Steve Morse, Lee Ritenour, Paco Pena & Jason Becker.

 

Joe has released 7 acclaimed studio albums, performed in 40 countries and continues to serve a large online audience through livestream concerts (pollster top 10) and videos that reach millions each month.

 

In addition to being a jaw-dropping performer, Joe is an accomplished educator, having led guitar workshops at Berklee College Of Music (Boston), Musicians Institute (Los Angeles), Belmont University (Nashville) and currently serves over 20,000 online guitar students.

 

Robinson was born in 1991 in the rural Australian town of Kempsey, NSW and grew up in a rustic farmhouse with no running hot water.  His parents raised cattle, horses, sheep, dogs, snakes - he and his 3 siblings all grew up playing music.  From touring with Phil Emmanuel and Stevie Wright (The Easybeats) aged 13, Joe won the Australian National Songwriting competition that same year and went on to win the Australia’s Got Talent TV Series, aged 17.  By the age of 18 he had already performed 1000 concerts and won first place at the World Championships Of Performing Arts in Los Angeles.

 

Joe is an equally skilled fingerstyle virtuoso, electric soloist, brilliant songwriter and marries these elements with a style that can only be called his own.

 

“Joe is, of course, renowned for being a virtuoso guitarist.  But after several listens to his latest offering (Borders), i’m of the opinion that as a singer and songwriter, he also belongs in a league with such mega-selling artists as Charlie Puth and Harry Styles.  But don’t just take my word for it, get a copy of the album and see for yourself.”

 -Grammy® Award Winner Rodney Crowell 

 

“It would be fair to say that guitar phenomenon, Joe Robinson, has little left to prove.  Yet, he keeps moving the bar musically and artistically in virtually any direction his hybrid talent and sonic-soul leads him.  …Robinson doesn’t just dabble, he succumbs and embraces each style, demonstrating grace and fluidity in each he undertakes.  I have to wonder if categories apply to his body of recorded fretwork.”
