Joe started playing drums at the age of 14. Growing up in the small town of Taupo, New Zealand, Joe spent a considerable amount of his time teaching himself
how to play drums.
Inspiration gathered from bands such as Blink 182, Madball, Metallica and Iron Maiden, Joe was well on the way to learning the craft from some of the greats!
In 2014 he made the choice to cross the ditch and
set up his life in Melbourne, Australia. In 2016 he
began to further his playing and study under Melbourne's own Dan Kerby of
DK Drums academy.
2017 saw Joe join the band Steadfast. fronted by ex Storm the Sky vocalist Daniel Breen. They began working on their debut EP "Inside the Mind of Youth" which released in February 2018. Inside the Mind of Youth debuted at No.20 on the iTunes alternative charts and Steadfast began to play shows supporting the likes of Saviour, Masketta fall and recently Storm the Sky on their farewell tour.
Steadfast are currently writing a follow up to their debut EP and plan to have it recorded and released in 2019.
