He walks a tightrope between the instrumental music that has put him in the spotlight and a unique fusion of vocally-based rock, blues, jazz and R&B that is entirely his own.
Hailing from backwoods of Temagog, New South Wales, Australia, Robinson won the Australian National Songwriting Competition at age thirteen and went on to win numerous other major competitions including TV’s Australia’s Got Talent (2008), Senior Grand Champion Performer of the World (2009) in Los Angeles and also won the instrumental category in the same competition. Joe was named “Best New Talent” in Guitar Player magazine’s 2010 Reader’s Poll.
Robinson has spent the last few years touring North America and abroad (China, Japan, Europe and Australia) playing festivals and headlining clubs, which has enabled him to define himself as a budding world visionary. Displaying his virtuosity on electric as well as acoustic guitar, Robinson landed a coveted spot as one of Australian Guitar Magazine’s Top 50 Best Guitarists.

“Add powerful vocals to ingenious guitar riffs and you have the makings of a major star.” -REVERB
“Robinson’s gift for high-flying picking and his unerring melodic compass have opened doors all along Nashville’s famed Music Row.” -GUITAR PLAYER
