Hailing from Croxteth, Liverpool and just 24, Joe Slater delivers a smooth saturating blend of rock, blues and soul that is beyond his years.
Joe's songwriting and unique vocals take listeners on a journey comprised of energetic sing-alongs and anthemic ballads, full of interior and reflective moments.
His 'State of the Ark' EP was recorded with Rock N' Roll royalty, produced by "Kipper" (Sting and many more), engineered by Cameron Craig (Adele and many more) and Mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
With the release of the single 'Lady', things really took off for the kid from Croxteth. Within 24 hours 'Lady' was picked up by BBC Radio Merseyside and subsequently given national BBC Introducing radio-play after being hand-picked by Tom Robinson on Radio 6 who commented; ''Lady carries such absolute conviction you can't help but get swept up in its gravitational pull. He's clearly a man on a major musical mission’.
Joe has a magnetic stage personality. He has sold out the award-winning Green Note in Camden and packed out Liverpool's own Parr Street Studios, also playing many festival stages including The Alternative Escape, Cornbury, LIMF and The Isle of Wight.
Growing in popularity Joe became resident artist every weekend at the new Hard Rock Hotel London. In early 2020 he supported The Christians on several dates of their national tour as well as opening for rising star Emily Capell across the UK.
Since lockdown, Joe has been active on the live circuit with London appearances at Wembley Park, Hard Rock Cafe and Eccleston Yards. Also playing Lock & Quay in Liverpool.
