joeastray go ASTRAY Hamburg, Freiburg, Karlsruhe Straight and bursting with energy! This it what comes to your mind when you see him perform on stage. The Sydney-born singer/songwriter Joe Astray, currently living in the south of Germany, has committed himself to one ultimate goal: it goes up on the stages of the world, right in the heart of the audience. Last year he released his solo debut ''The Painkiller'', which is now followed by an extensive tour through Germany and Europe. Joe Astray stands for authentic indie-folk-pop. Nothing is left to chance and his songs are much more uncompromising than what you get offered elsewhere. It is indeed true that he works with an acoustic guitar. But where other musicians try to deal with their lovesickness by whispering tearjerkers, Joe Astray is taking the offensive. His songs, sometimes sad, often tragic, but never maudlin or cheesy, are first and foremost one thing: Pure ROCK!
