Music critic extraordinaire Greil Marcus once famously wrote that the America he loved was the “old, weird America”. He was writing about the inspiration behind the best of Bob Dylan’s work but he might easily have been referring to JOE FLETCHER’S music. Joe has a natural affinity for the grit and quirkiness of what came before. His story-driven songwriting and deep, distinctive voice have earned him national attention and comparisons to the likes of Cash, Cave, Cohen, and Dylan. Relentless touring and a prestigious Newport Folk Festival slot in 2012 have bolstered his reputation as a superb live performer, as well.
