Joe Bachman is a country/pop artist who grew up in PA. He is funny, super cool and mad talented. Oh wait, did I mention he is pretty darn good looking too? Well, we can add that to the list. Joe made his way to nashville about five years ago and its been pretty amazing for him. He was welcomed by artists such as Big Kenny, Lee Brice and Zac Brown Band. Joe's music is very soulful and genuwine. He also has a fun factor in his music that I love. His album "one" made it to the top of the list on reverbnation hot country chart and it was well deserved. My favorite track is "Small Town Rockstars" because it totally reminds me of my friends back home in my small town. If you haven't checked out Joe's music, I have one question…what are you waiting for?
What do you love most about making music? love the ability to tell a story or verbalize the emotions of myself and the people that listen to my music.
My songs are my heart, my life experiences. I love being able to share that with people and open myself up to them. It's terrifying and liberating and exciting. It's the best high on earth.
Where is your favorite place to perform?
Not to sound chliché, but I love to play anywhere there are TRUE country music fans. They are the greatest fans on earth. I have headlined for 10,000. I have played for 10. I can get the same rush from stage in either situation… as long as the people in front of me are sending that energy right back to me!
What artists do you currently listen to?
I'll always listen to Willie, The Eagles, Alabama, Garth, Johnny, etc. But modern artists… I love Zac Brown, Kenny, Jason Aldean… and my buddies Lee Brice and Florida Georgia Line.
Who were some of your influences growing up?
My influences came from every genre of music. I LOVE the harmonies of The Eagles & The Beatles. I love the raw, rock emotion of Bruce. I love the stories and lyrics of The Counting Crows. I love musicianship and pop-sensability of
Billy & Elton. And of course… nothing was better than a live show from Garth!
What is your favorite sport?
Basketball & Football are the only 2 sports I'll watch. I don't really have a lot of time for sports in my life… but there's NOTHING like a live College SEC Football Game!
Beer or Wine?
Beer. Miller Lite. All day, every day! HA HA!
Do you have a favorite TV show?
Yup! I literally HATE TV. I don't turn it on at hotels…. and barely EVER watch it. BUT…. I dvr Modern Family, Pawn Stars, and Newsroom. Addicted to those 3.
I've also seen every Seinfeld multiple times!
What are your future goals? What can we expect from you in the future?
I just want to continue to do what I've done for the last decade. I play music for a living. I get to let people hear my songs. I get to bring a party every night to a different town, in a different state. I share my life with my amazing friends and fans… and I get to see the world while doing it! I wouldn't change a thing! Obviously, I'd love for the fan base (and shows) to get bigger and bigger! HA HA! My biggest goal is to play Red Rocks in Colorado!
Is there anything you want the world to know about Joe Bachman? Anything you want to say to the fans?
I just want y'all to know that there isn't a single day that goes by that I don't thank you for allowing me to live this dream. I get to do what I love for a living because of your love and support. I can't thank y'all enough for that. I do my best to show you my gratitude by giving you everything I have inside of me every show. I can't wait to see what the future holds! #keepitcountry
