Joe Pug has been described as having an overwhelming feel of authenticity, relying on his steely guitar plucking and rich vocals. Joe got his start by handing out CD’s to anyone interested in sharing his music which resulted in the EP selling 20,000 copies and a record deal with Nashville label Lightning Rod Records in 2010. He played 400 shows touring over 4 years’ time, often selling out venues. His albums include Messenger (2010), The Great Despiser (2012), and Windfall (2015), and concert venues including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and The Newport Folk Festival. He’s been named in American Songwriter’s “Top 50 Songs Of The Year” and NPR Mountain Stage’s “Favorite Performances of 2015”. http://www.joepugmusic.com/
About recording his latest album, Windfall, Joe said, “We wanted to capture the music just the way we play it, with minimal production. It was a very back to basics approach because ultimately that’s what I love about music, and that’s what I love about making music. I wanted to record these songs the way they were written and put them out in the world.”
A talented songwriter and incredibly popular performer, NC Stage Co. is delighted to welcome Joe Pug to our theatre to kick off this summer’s Up Close Music Series.
