Joe has an incredibly strong voice and is a super gifted guitar player. He's efficient and super creative. Easy to communicate with and delivers great quality work. I highly recommend working with him! He's also just a super cool human.
I wrote and produced a song with a friend of mine and while I thought she was going to record vocals on it she ended up bringing Joe into the project to not only sing the song but also to add electric guitar. I was blown away by how amazing the track turned out with Joe being part of it, and how much cooler it became. Not only is he a really great vocalist, but he is an outstanding guitarist who rips top-notch guitar solos and has a great tone and feel to his playing. Joe Marson is the man!
Joe sang all of my lead vocals for my Brut Esquire Society rock album... He's amazing and a pros pro he is Brut Esquire Society in my book he will always have my total and unwavering endorsement.
