Hi, I'm Joe. I made a record with some friends. It's called Topics. It's called this because I was thinking about a lot of current events kind of stuff during the time I was writing it. The big ol stuff that I guess we're all going through, like technology and politics, and how that affects our communication and feelings of connection or isolation.

I was also thinking wow, I have a lot of feelings about work and jobs. I was also thinking man, I really love Tom T. Hall and Hank Williams. Not that the record sounds like an old country record. I didn't know what I wanted it to sound like. I wanted to get the songs recorded. I'm grateful to have gotten to work with the people on the record and for the interest some people have shown in it!
