Full live takes with vintage gear from an experienced recording artist. Latest commercial releases: "Celeste - Lately, Both Sides Of The Moon" "Gotts Street Park - Volume One" "Yellow Days - Nothing's Going to Keep Me Down". Currently working on projects with Celeste, Selah Sue, Pip Millet, Rosie Lowe, Gotts Street Park.
I believe in the magic of full live takes (with overdubs if necessary) and provide tasteful well played guitar tracks. I spend time choosing the right selection of vintage mics/high end pre-amp/guitar to suit your track... and my main weapon - a 1975 Fender Twin Reverb.
I'm very open minded and enjoy discussing ideas and collaborating to create the perfect parts for the song!
Labels I've recorded for: EMI, Island, Universal, Sony/Syco, Atlantic Records, Asylum, Good Years, Atlas Artists

Absolutely amazing work. Top notch player - and great tone and feel. Joe took constructive ideas very openly and delivered exactly what I needed. He's the real deal. HIGHLY recommended.
Fantastic work! Great tone, and a VERY tasteful and musical approach. I offered a few suggestions and ideas, and Joe delivered exactly what I needed. Solid communication and solid playing. Would love to work with him again...
Love the guitar riffs they sent me, super high quality stuff.
