Once upon a time, it was in 2009, Joe THE VOICE moved from Jakarta to Gili Trawangan. After being back in Lombok a dream came true and he started with his first own band called „JOE MELLOW MOOD“. Hendro the bass player grew up in the same area as Joe (DASAN AGUNG PEJERUK, MATARAM). He is the first member. Hendro’s friends, Apel playing drums (DASAN AGUNG PERIGI, MATARAM) and Q-ting playing lead guitar (DASAN AGUNG MUHAJIRIN) join the band! They saw Beby (TODO, NORTH OF LOMBOK) play, ask him to join and he completes the band with his talent on the Keyboard. Getho (Percussion), last but not least, was born in Maumere - Flores. He loves reggae music, for this reason he made his way to Jakarta (1999) where he played music with many different bands and musicians. 2012 he finally found his way to „Joe Mellow Mood“.
Joe Mellow Mood was born on the 6. of February 2010. Even though, Joe Mellow Mood is a newcomer in the reggae scene, their music is unique and already played on several local radio stations in Indonesia. Gili Trawangan and the SamaSama Reggae Bar is a perfect place to get a beautiful atmosphere and an international influence, this made the band strong in a short time. Joe Mellow Mood released their first album this year - 2012. Some of the songs were written in Jakarta, other songs were created in Gili Trawangan, where Joe gets a lot of new inspiration from people, nature and musicians from abroad. The songs in the album “Lombok Holiday” are colourfull, the arrangements for each song are different. Joe experiments with languages, so the songs are mixed with bahasa indonesia, bahasa sasak, english, francais and even little bit of Deutsch.
