Indie/groove guitarist Joe Olnick and his band return with his sixth album of original instrumental compositions, Downtown, released worldwide on October 20, 2017.
His latest CD explores the increasingly urban world that he lives in, based in the mid-Atlantic area near both Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Building on the success of last year's Defiant Grooves album, the Joe Olnick Band takes the grooves into more sophisticated territory similar to Medeski, Martin & Wood as well as Soulive. His previous work has drawn comparisons to artists like Phish, The New Mastersounds and Miles Davis.
The combination of classic guitar elements and new, creative approaches has created a growing fan base. Word is spreading of this uniquely powerful music that is again moving up the college radio charts, with stations like WERU, KAFM, WXAV, KWCR, WNIA, KTSW, WRST, WESS, WWSU, KOTO, KBBI, WMCO, and many more already building a buzz around this release.
