Hailing from Croxteth, Liverpool and at just 22, Joe Slater delivers a smooth, saturating blend of rock, blues and soul that is beyond his years.
Drawing inspiration from The Beatles, The Boss and Oasis, Joe’s song writing and unique vocals take listeners on a journey comprised of energetic sing-alongs and anthemic ballads, full of interior and reflective moments, that only the greats could inspire.
Joe states that, “It’s not about the past, it’s all about the future. Real music is about passion and feeling. I want people to feel my music.”
2018 has already been a successful year for the young singer-songwriter and it looks like he’s just getting warmed up. Since being taken under the wing of management company, TALENTBANQ, this year has seen Joe perform at prestigious events such as the first anniversary of The Ned, the opening of Soho House White City, the Hard Rock Cafe stage at the Isle of Wight Festival, The Cornbury Festival and The View from The Shard. And, many more dates soon to be announced.
Going from strength-to-strength, July saw Joe enter the studio with Grammy Award winning producer Kipper at the world famous ‘State of the Ark’ studios. Joined by a live band that have individually toured alongside music royalty such as Paul McCartney, Adele and Grace Jones, this forthcoming EP oozes charisma that speaks to generations both young and old alike with tracks such as ‘Rainbow’ taking inspiration from an Elvis Presley interview and ‘Lady’; an emotive and heartfelt homage to his guitar that brings him his wage
