Born in central New York, Joe Dorn had the benefit of long, cold winters to hone his artistic crafts and develop the dogged determination that has become synonymous with Joe to anyone that knows him. After several years of engineering and drumming in Charlotte, NC, Joe embarked on his life-long dream of moving to Nashville, TN to pursue a career in music.
Working as a sound engineer, Joe managed to find time for drumming with some of the industry's finest. Names like The Offering, Jeff Wood, and the legendary Charlie McCoy rise to the top of a long list of performers.
Joe's influences are diverse, ranging from Ian Paice's jazz-laced Hard Rock groove, to the technical mastery of Bill Bruford.
