Duke Ellington said that "music comes in two categories: Good and Bad." Joesf draws on a wide range of influences to create an instrumental art form of textures, moods, and melodies. It is an improvised music based on very structured ideas. 

 

Joesf studied music at Christopher Newport College in Virginia and was head guitar Professor at Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma before leaving to pursue music exclusively focusing on small groups, solo acoustic, and harp guitar.  

A multi-instrumentalist Joesf has performed various styles of music ranging from classical and bluegrass to punk rock and jazz.

Apart from his work as a soloist and clinician his other projects include Classical guitar and violin with James Ruggles, Guitars Gone Wild - a jazz fusion group with Jarrod Elmore and Bill Jones and R&B/Soul with Big Joe Muse.

Joesf can be heard on Pandora, Spotify, Jango and other internet radio stations.
