Joe S is a sensational young musician based in Portlaoise, Co. Laois. Influenced by his favourite artists, Tracey Chapman and Simon Neil, Joe developed his own unique melody and indie rock sound years ago as a founding member and lead vocalist of the popular band Listen Up.
As a member of Listen Up Joe began to write 'Heart Felt' lyrical songs such as 'There For You' and 'Fairweather'. He first pursued a solo career in music in the summer of 2012 with a project to raise funds for the band. Still a member of Listen Up, Joe describes his solo career as 'A way to express myself individually, as a different person, not a group'.
After playing gigs nationwide and in prestigious well-known venues such as the Sugar Club and Fibber Maggees, Joe released his first independant album, 'Friends Home Love' recently which is available in selected stores and on iTunes. With the album receiving great reviews things are looking good for this successful young musician who is soon to enter production on his second album 'My Own Reflections'.
