American-Roots-Music will swagger through the Sou’wester as we welcome musician Joe Fletcher coming to us from East Nashville, Tennessee.
“Joe Fletcher proves his versatility on White Lighter. His signature brand of dark and lyrically driven honky tonk is interspersed with a softer side that would make a Hagg or Jones proud.” – No Depression
Joe Fletcher is a midwestern born, New England raised singer-songwriter living in East Nashville, TN. He released his third independent record, You’ve Got the Wrong Man, in October of 2014. This intimate solo album is a departure from his previous efforts with his band The Wrong Reasons (White Lighter and Bury Your Problems).
Made up of his gritty original songs as well as covers by his peers Brown Bird and Toy Soldiers, it was recorded live over a few months on a mobile recording unit in Rhode Island, Georgia, and Tennessee in the spirit of some of Joe’s favorite records by Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Jimmie Rodgers, Bruce Springsteen, among others.
Now a three year veteran of the Newport Folk Festival, Joe has toured with The Devil Makes Three, Band of Heathens, Deer Tick and has opened for the likes Jason Isbell, Lucero, Robert Ellis, John Doe, The Low Anthem, and many more. Joe spends most of his time touring in what has truly been a grass roots operation thus far.
