Needs some blues and rock to go with your egg nog? Well, rather you’ve been naughty or nice your name is on one list for sure! Artist Joe The Bluesman is giving gifts earlier this year, the gift of music and you’re on the list to receive. Joe’s new single “Christmas With You” adds a little blues to the original duet released by Johnny & June Carter Cash. The single is currently available via pre-release on the Sound Cloud platform and will be released to all major streaming services on December 4th.
Joe The Bluesman aka Joe Campobasso was born in Kansas City in 1954. Early in his childhood, his parents moved to Huntington Beach, California where he would spend most of his youth. A natural musician, he was already playing the violin by the third grade and by high school he was playing in the school’s band. Joe also played bass in a band during his teen years known as “Pimit Creek,” who mainly played CSN&Y covers. Joe’s musical influences include Count Basis and Sarah Vaughn. After high school, he put music as a profession aside stating “I have always had an interest in music but I had to put music as a side interest, like so many people I took the time to raise my family. Three years ago I said goodbye to my day job to make music my number one priority.”
To date, counting the release of his upcoming single, Joe has released three singles and one E.P. A Deep South and Midwest tour are planned to promote Joe’s music next spring and summer.
