Former Rounder Records recording artist, Joe Paquin wakes up every morning thanking the Powers That Be for giving him one more day to have the opportunity to share his music with the world. Critically acclaimed while with the band The Sundogs for 17 years, Joe is currently strapped into the pilot's seat for a musical flight to hippiebilly heaven.
Joe, has plenty of history and plenty of stories to share regarding that history. But his focus lies directly in the sights of the here and now; a here and now that he holds precious and sacred.
With the loving support of a wonderful wife (Nancie) and an extremely talented son (Luke, who plays guitar for Hot Hot Heat) and an extended family of friends and fans, Joe Paquin vows to take it all by the bootstraps, sing 'til he's hoarse, tour 'til he drops, and spread the hippiebilly word with the vigor and passion of God's own preacher.
Joe and his mates have either played with, recorded with, or opened for.
