Overview: Combining equal parts country, folk and rock, NYC singer/songwriter JOE WHYTE's songs have been described as "alt-country pearls that shimmer with simplicity and effectiveness” and "beautifully crafted, melancholic Americana."
Dubbed, “The King of NYC Americana” by music blog Twangnation, Joe is currently finishing material for a follow-up to 2007’s critically-acclaimed album, Devil in the Details, which received 4 Stars from Maverick Country, was named to Americana Roots' Best of 2007 List and was predicted to "make history" by Rootsville.
Over the years, Joe has performed throughout the US, UK and Ireland with artists as varied as Rosanne Cash, Steve Forbert, Josh Ritter, Slaid Cleaves, Son Volt, Glen Hansard, and The Duhks to name a few.
Whyte’s music has been receiving regional radio play (WBJB, WFDU, WDVR, XM, Sirius) and TV placements (NPR’s Road Trip), while also catching the attention of noted music attorney George Stein, manager of the late Jeff Buckley. Artist Site
