Bio: Listed as one of "BC's Best Bands" by The Province Newspaper's Tom Harrison for two years running (2007/2008), Big Joe Burke’s rowdy and rousing alt-country music has been stopping and stealing hearts since he first emerged in Vancouver’s Roots Music Scene in the Spring of 2006.

“The Year in Music Best Local Groups The year before it was Anthill, but now that group didn't produce a new album. The local scene had a lot of great bands releasing a lot of good indie stuff, but the one I enjoyed most was Combine The Victorius. It showed a knowledge of the past that it used to go forward. Pride Tiger, Cinderpop, Big Joe Burke and Panurge are more homegrown acts to be proud of.”
