For me those songs never really told a story, I had to come full circle , back to my roots to find the honest story telling of the great American outlaw country songs.” - Joe Michaels

About Joe

American, country singer, songwriter Joe Michaels' brand of country music pays tribute to America and the icons of country music. His music touches the heart with his debut single "13 Folds" and his most recent release "pain You Don't Know".  But don't let that fool you, Joe loves a good ol' drinking and honky tonk song too! With roots stemming from Outlaw Country, Rockabilly and Punk; You never know what you're going to hear. 

"I was raised on outlaw country, I grew up listening to Waylon, Charlie Daniels, David Allen Coe, Willie, Cash and more. Dad used to stuff us in the back of his car and we would hit the road for summer vacations traveling across the country with Willie blaring out of the 6x9s."

As Joe got older he began exploring other less mainstream music genres and spent some time dabbling in punk and rockabilly. "I found the songs I was writing in these genre's had a lot of outlaw country influences, but for me those songs never really told a story". Joe had to come full circle , back to his roots to find the honest story telling of the great American outlaw country songs.
