Joe Boyle

Electric Guitar

Just like Joe, he had no Bio, so here’s some text from another musician (Brook Batteau), who took it from another musician (Stuart Getz) with whom Joe plays....

 “There are guitar players and then there is this thing that the great ones do, that somehow seems different; like they are actually re-inventing the concept of how this six-stringed instrument is played.  Joe Boyle is one of those rare musicians.

When you see him on stage all the basic components are there:  The Rock 'n Roll attitude; The cigarette wedged into the headstock; He holds the guitar the same way everyone else does; The pick-ups, the amp, it's all pretty standard.  The tone and expression lead you to believe that you are experiencing something completely unique. 

There is no artist on the planet who does less to promote his accomplishments than Joe.  He just plays.  The great ones don't need to sell it.  They just do what they do and audiences know they're witnessing something special.”

Joe’s guitar playing can be heard on many stylistically varied recordings and was a long time member Peter Tork's (of the Monkees) band, Shoe Suede Blues. Joe has also performed with Swish, the Boston area indie band which included Lori Martin and Dinosaur, Jr. drummer "Murph".
