Joe Holt is a folk singer/songwriter who graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2015.
Joe has released three EPs and two full length albums. He has toured around America four times, playing venues like Club Passim (Boston), the Hard Rock Cafe (Boston), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), The Bitter End (NYC), the Bluebird Cafe (Nashville), and the Whisky A Go Go (Los Angeles), and has received airplay on over 60 radio stations internationally. Joe's album "The Person I Admire" charted on three radio stations, notably #3 in Redway, CA. He has been named Artist of the Week at WERU (Bangor, ME) three times. The song "As Bad As It Seems," from Joe's EP "Something Louder," was featured on NPR's All Songs Considered in March 2018.
The following release, 2019's A Bigger Fire, brought Joe his largest audiences to date, and led to placements on Spotify editorial playlists and international radio airplay. Joe co-wrote much of Austin Blair Campbell's first full length album, and toured with him for two months around the country.
Joe’s newest release “It’s What We Give,” an EP about searching for meaning, comes out on June 5th. A song from that record, “People in New York,” was shared on NPR in March 2020 with an accompanying live performance.
Indie Minded praised Joe as “a gifted young talent who is sure to leave his mark on the folk music scene.” Other credits include opening for nationally touring acts including Steve Forbert, Parker Millsap, and Davina and the Vagabonds, scoring the short film The Race, and driving 13,000 miles in three weeks.
