Ottawa valley-bred singer/songwriter and guitar extraordinaire Joe McDonald effortlessly weaves melody, emotion and precise Travis-style guitar together like flowers on a finely tailored cowboy shirt. His latest album Human Dogs is an homage to his rural upbringing and features a lineup of players rivalling those of Music Row. Joe performs countless shows a year as a solo artist and band leader, and is most known for his warm rapport with audiences and his diverse musicianship. Legendary artists like John Prine, Johnny Cash and J.J. Cale have had a strong influence on his songwriting, recordings and live performances. With two full length albums under his belt and another in the works, Joe McDonald is on the move.
