Joe's songs are inspired by a folk music upbringing and involvements in peace and social justice movements.
Following a year's residency in the Nobel peace prize-nominated Buddhist monk Thích Nhat Hạnh's Plum Village, Joe spent two years travelling, journaling, song writing and singing with community groups at retreats, protest camps and demonstrations, with organisations including Extinction Rebellion and the Quakers. Joe's online journal and album More The Love That's Given (2020) share these experiences and Joe's journey continues in the new year with more of the same and the beginnings of album number 2.
