Joe McGrady is an Irish guitarist, songwriter, and singer. He started playing guitar when he was 7 and quickly fell in love with the instrument. Joe joined his first band when he was 16 and immediately discovered a passion for writing songs. That band played gigs locally over the next 4 years before disbanding.
Rather than join another rock band Joe decided to focus on the other side of his songwriting. Over the next two years he wrote dozens of acoustic songs and in the Summer of 2010 recorded "The Road To Nowhere" over a period of two weeks. Joe recorded the record himself at home and played all instruments on the record. "The Road To Nowhere" was released on August 26th 2010.
Joe likes listening to and playing most styles of music, so after releasing "The Road To Nowhere" he decided to change things up. In February 2011 he released his first single , "Please Just Leave". It took the acoustic elements of his first EP, added some electric lead guitar and better storytelling, and was well received.
A couple of months later Joe decided to take things further away from the acoustic EP and write rock music again. Once again, over a period of two weeks in the Summer of 2011 he wrote and recorded "Fading Autumn", a three track rock EP. Steve Gilmore called it "extremely well produced", and praised Joe's ability to write a "catchy and effective song".
Joe spent 2012 working on his first full length album. The first single "Night Terrors" was released on December 1st 2012. The album, "Undercover" was released for pre-order and streaming on February 15th and for sale on February 28th.
