Joe McLeod's songs are mined from rarely exploited seams of creativity. His songwriting, vocal delivery, and poignant lyrics are underpinned by his signature style on the guitar and mandolin. This musicianship drives his original songs through the familiar back-roads of Bluegrass, Rock 'n' Roll, Psychedelia, Country, Folk, Protest, Jazz, and Reggae. Joe's honest sound shines light on life's undeniable truths and the magic emerging from the cracks of the sidewalk.
Joe is currently living in Vancouver, British Columbia where he writes songs, plays in an array of bands, and works by day as a landscape architect.
He is always searching for the perfect song and artists who are eager to sing them.
