2020 marks the start of Joe's own releases in his honest "true to self" singer songwriter style, taking inspiration from the likes of Ben Howard, Damien Rice and legends such as Neil Young. Joe Cleere's first single "Innocence (From Your Eyes)" comes out later this year and tells the story of what it's like as a parent to have to "wipe the innocence" from your child's eyes as they grow up and learn about the world.
"For me its such an important song. In these times we’re all thinking more about our loved ones. For our children we’d sometimes rather they didn't know about the outside world and what's going on. Thankfully my 3yr old hasn't a clue.. About covid, war, heartbreak … he probably thinks coronavirus is a type of dinosaur. LOL and I guess thats an “innocence” he’ll lose one day, that I wish, he could keep forever"
