Live music performance (outdoors)
The Joe Stamm Band (JSB) is a Black Dirt Country Rock group rooted in the American Midwest. Born and raised in the fields and fence rows of central Illinois, Joe and the band play a soul pumping brand of music that is uniquely their own. DirtRoadAnthems.com told their readers, “If you are looking for a great new country/rock/Americana band to listen to, [Joe Stamm Band] is the perfect one.” JSB songs are laced with rural American imagery, hard-driving guitar, and songwriting that invites listeners into a deeply personal, authentic life experience.Joe’s early life revolved primarily around football, earning a scholarship to play quarterback at Northern Illinois University. Injuries, however, cut a once promising career short and sent him searching - searching for a new identity, new hobbies, new pursuits and points of focus. He poured himself into academics, hunting, his childhood faith, partying & burning candles at both ends. Gradually, music and songwriting dominated Joe’s focus and stories began to emerge – not just his but yours, ours. Over time, a community of musicians & fans took notice. A band formed & audiences started filling venues.
Joe has now opened for acts such as Travis Tritt, Blackberry Smoke, Jamey Johnson, Chris Knight, Reckless Kelly, the Kentucky Headhunters, JJ Grey & MOFRO, Easton Corbin, Jerrod Niemann, Parmalee, among others, even sharing the bill with personal heroes Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson at the Tailgates and Tallboys Music Festival. Joe Stamm Band’s members include Joe at guitar & lead vocals, Bruce Moser playing bass, Dave Glover on lead guitar, and Tim Fiers on drums. Their focus is singular – play great music for as many people as possible. Joe acknowledges, “We started this thing in the grassroots of central Illinois. And we plan to stay firmly rooted. Roots and growth are dependent on one another. We trust our fans will keep us centered on both.”
Joe most recently released Stories: Live & Unplugged, a raw, bare bones record of story songs that Buzz Russell of Texas 99/KNES-FM called “great work, a certain level of grittiness, truth and emptiness. Joe pulls it all together.”
Joe also dropped Songs Without A Home in October of 2019, a 3-song EP cut in Nashville with producer Joe Carrell, whom he also worked with on “First Saw You.” “First Saw You,” which was originally released as a single on June 1, 2018, was later included on, Dandelion Woman - a 5 song EP, released on October 26, 2018, that features the entire Joe Stamm Band.
JSB music is available on all digital music platforms (i.e. iTunes, Spotify, etc.), as well as traditional formats such as CD, Vinyl & DVD.
