BIO

Raised just outside of New York City in Nutley, New Jersey, Joe was regaled by his father John, himself a lover of music and aspiring songwriter, with wonderful stories of the famed Brill Building and the songs and songwriters that emanated from it.

From a very young age, Joe loved music – especially popular songs – and had an uncanny talent for picking hits among the songs he heard on the radio. After learning to play the guitar at the age of 10, Joe came across a Beatles songbook, and although he knew the famous songs, there were a few that he had never heard. Inspired by these, he would play the chords and read the words on the sheet music, but create his own melodies. One unheard song in particular, “I’m Looking Through You”, inspired Joe to write a melody that was completely different than what Lennon and McCartney had created. Upon finally hearing the original melody, Joe realized that perhaps he could write songs himself. A short time later, after breaking up with his high school sweetheart, Joe wrote his first fully realized song, “A Love No More”, and thought, based on the reactions of his family and friends, that songwriting was his calling.

After earning a Business Degree at Rutgers University, Joe hit the ground running with his mission to become a professional songwriter. Pounding the streets of Manhattan every day, armed with nothing more than a few songs and some lyric sheets, he knocked on every door possible looking for someone to give his songs a listen. After reading an ad in Billboard Magazine, Joe enrolled in a songwriting workshop taught by famed NYC songwriter Lou Stallman. It was through Lou that Joe would meet the man he’d been seeking all along, Mike Millius, an established industry song publisher who liked Joe’s songs and knew he had the talent to succeed.

Working closely with Mike, Joe honed his craft and began having songs published and recorded. His song “A Million Shades of Love” became a hit for the West End Girls, earning Joe his first Gold Record. Soon after, Joe began collaborating with songwriting legends Sandy Linzer and Clyde Otis and started having his songs recorded by artists worldwide. Some of these songs have been translated into Spanish and Mandarin, as well as placed into movies and TV shows.

All songs from the Bartell Music catalog, including those listed above, are available for licensing and recording, unless otherwise noted.
