About Joe Kann

Joe is a singer/songwriter whose unique style is informed by his experiences as a husband, father, and traveler.  Inspired primarily by the folk tradition, he shows a rare authenticity in his songwriting, which explores themes of family, love, and the passing of time.

Joe was born in New York and spent much of his early adult life traveling the country.  Although he harbored dreams of a life in music as a young man, he instead pursued a career as an air traffic controller which took up most of his time.  Music, however, was never far from his mind.  Everywhere he went, he absorbed the local styles, quietly building up a diverse knowledge of everything from early blues to classic rock’n’roll, all of which would come to inform his sound.

Now, almost thirty years after first picking up a guitar, he is putting the stories of his life into songs.  He released his first tracks in late 2020 and has been steadily building momentum.  As his repertoire grows, Joe is dedicated to continuing to travel the country and build connections through his music.

Joe has a goal to release 8-10 new songs in 2021 along with multiple cover videos to his youtube channel.

Please consider joining along with Joe as he continues to build his fanbase by signing up for his monthly newsletter, following his Facebook page, Youtube page, and adding him as a favorite artist on Spotify.

Lyrics and Thoughts from my Life

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

The Cure — Just Like Heaven

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams to another land
Maybe you’re tired and broken
Your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
To do for you, to see you through?
A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through

Grateful Dead — Box of Rain

You can’t have a United States if you are telling some folks that they can’t get on the train. There is a cracking point where a society collapses.

Bruce Springsteen

So you play your albums, and you smoke your pot
And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
Oh but still you’re aching for the things you haven’t got
What went wrong?

Billy Joel — Captain Jack

Any minute now, my ship is coming in
I’ll keep checking the horizon
I’ll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down down down, on me

And you say, be still my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in
But don’t you understand
I already have a plan
I’m waiting for my real life to begin

Colin Hay — Waiting for my Real Life to Begin

From the Press

“The heartfelt song is a look at the father son relationship. The storytelling style has hints of folk, country, and even some Americana sprinkled in to create a relatable and touching sound. The lyrics are delivered with true feeling bringing the listener deep into the emotion of the song.” — Indie Band Guru reviewing Through His Eyes

“Letting him make music is better than having to listen to him swear at the lawn gnomes through the screen door.” — Joe’s loving wife
