Earthy Soul witha Funky Stroll

There once was a little Joey who liked to spin in the middle of the living room, watching the ground go around like an LP record while his mama spun Beatles and Michael Jackson albums on Sunday mornings. This was his Melodic Church of Rhythm and Soul, and it would influence the songs he would write someday.

Fast forward to the present, where Sly Joe's songs have been enjoyed from living room couches all over the world via NBC, ABC, and Netflix. His memorable live performances also span the globe, with residencies in Thailand, San Francisco, and his native land of cheese, Wisconsin.
