The Bank Tavern is proud to present Joe McCorriston!
Joe is a folk/punk influenced pop Singer-Songwriter from Morecambe, Lancashire, UK.
He already has 3 albums to his name as well as many compilations and EP's.
2011’s EP “One Day” and 2012’s LP “Try As You Might”, 2014's "Sick & Sand" are releases that symbolize Joe’s formative years, all released as a teenager.
The latest album "The Party We Came For", was released on 16th December 2016, receiving many positive media reviews and the album launch show sold out weeks in advance. Joe continued to tour “The Party We Came For” through 145 shows in 11 different countries throughout 2017.
His musical influences range from Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan & Bruce Springsteen, to NOFX, Green Day & McFly, and these influences have been honed through Joe’s creative machine to make a sound unique enough to stand out from the crowd, but catchy enough to leave you with the melodies in your head after just one listen.
Joe is a workaholic, and is on tour more than he is at home, as he gigs endlessly around the UK & Europe building a following one-by-one.
New EP “Existence. Familiarity” was released on 25th January 2018 to coincide with the start of another year of graft & touring. Joe toured the UK university circuit with Coffee House Sessions in January, before heading to Scandinavia for a tour throughout February, a 3 week tour of Germany in March, and will once again head out for a run of UK date in April, before hitting up the festival circuit over summer.
Joe has played 650 shows as of December 2017, and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Despite just being armed with an acoustic guitar, his live show is full of energy, passion and creativity to make you turn your head. So come down to your favourite boozer and see for yourself!
