Joe first began playing piano at the young age of 6, pursuing both jazz and classical to a high standard. Meanwhile, he developed an interest in composition and arrangement, and it was around this time that he knew he wanted to pursue a musical life and career. After years of dedication he has formed a myriad of his own groups including a well-honed trio and has played at various venues such as Wakefield Jazz Club, Middleton Arena and Wigan Jazz Festival. He has studied with names such as Steve Waterman, Jason Rebello, Niki Iles, Dennis Rollins , Malcolm Edmonstone and Gareth Williams. Since moving to London he is constantly working on new compositions and arrangements and recording lots of his new projects. He has played at venues such as Barbican Concert Hall and Milton Court Concert Hall with names such as Elliot Mason and Vincent Gardener. Now the piano chair in NYJO, he hopes to continue developing his career in London. Tonight at his late show debut he will “spotlight” his passion for one of the greatest piano lead trios of all time, the Oscar Peterson trio.
