Joe Wilkins is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and studio musician. Living on Boston’s North Shore, Joe writes, records and performs continuously in the Greater Boston area and beyond. Listening to and absorbing everything from Afrobeat to Zydeco – Joe’s songwriting and sounds are eclectic – Americana, Bluegrass, Folk, and Gypsy Jazz along with 60’s and 70’s funk, soul and jazz are all genres that influence Joe’s sound.  Performances vary from full band with electric guitar – to intimate, acoustic duo and trio gigs.

At a young age Joe’s uncle would send him cassette tapes of strange sounds and instruments. These tapes would end up being the catalyst for a lifetime of musical creation. Starting on drums and percussion, Joe picked up the guitar at 14 years old and has been playing and performing for over 20 years. Recording and gigging in Pop, Afrobeat, Folk, Rock, Bluegrass and Funk bands – Joe is a seasoned player in many genres and is adept at Electric Guitar as well as Acoustic Guitar.  He also plays Bass Guitar, Ukulele and Mandolin and occasionally the drum set.
