New Reb is not just music...
...it's a movement of people who want to better themselves for the sake of the planet and the universe. A movement to help people gain consciousness, and awareness of what's going on around them. A movement that promotes positivity and the realization that we are all mirrors, and that we all reflect upon one another.
SMOKIN JOE (Smokin' Joe Scarpellino)
He is known mostly as the hard-hitting bassist of the Funk/Rock band Dead Larry, but when performing as Smokin' Joe he focuses on the softer and lighter side of life. Joe utilizes his music as an emotional outlet. Most of his songs are autobiographical and are as much therapy for him as his fans. Overall it's the message of love, hope, and togetherness that draws fans to his folk/pop stylings. The goal is to inspire and be inspired in return.
A 16 year old percussive-fingerstyle guitarist who has a craving to express stories, thoughts, lessons, ideas, and medicine through his guitar.

Having played for 11 years, but only performing at harmony for 2 or 3, he is excited to continue to blossom and grow within his musical communities.
