An innovator of the live looping beatbox sound, Joe Driscoll has been touring steadily for years, spreading his unique fusion of folk and hip-hop. The modern day take on the one man band, he uses live loops to create soundscapes full of beatbox, guitar, harmonica, percussion, harmonica, and just about anything else he can make use of. After 11 years living in England and France, Joe has moved back to his native city, Syracuse in upstate New York. Driscoll has performed his ground breaking solo show at the famed Glastonbury Festival, Electric Picnic in Ireland, Rift Valley Fest in Kenya, and hundreds of major stages all over the world.
