The Joe Stamm Band (JSB) is a high energy country/rock group rooted in the black dirt of the American Midwest. Born & raised in the fields and fence rows of Central Illinois, Joe and the band play a soul pumping brand of country rock uniquely their own. JSB released an EP, “Feel Like Me”, in August of 2016 & follow-up single "Crow Creek" in June, 2017. Their next single, "American Freeborn Kids" is set to release November 30th, 2017. JSB's music is laced with rural American imagery, hard-driving guitar, and songwriting that invites listeners into a deeply personal, authentic life experience.
Joe’s early life revolved primarily around football, earning a scholarship to play quarterback at Northern Illinois University. Injuries, however, cut a once promising career short and sent him searching - searching for a new identity, new hobbies, new pursuits and points of focus. He poured himself into academics, hunting, his childhood faith, partying & burning candles at both ends. Gradually, music and songwriting dominated Joe’s focus and stories began to emerge – not just his but yours, ours. Over time, a community of musicians & fans took notice. A band formed & audiences started filling venues.
The Joe Stamm Band has opened for acts such as Parmalee, the Kentucky Headhunters, JT Hodges, even sharing the bill with personal heroes Willie Nelson & Kris Kristofferson this past summer at the Tailgates & Tallboys Music Festival. Their focus is singular – play great music for as many people as possible. Joe acknowledges, “We started this thing in the grassroots of central Illinois. And we plan to stay firmly rooted. Roots and growth are dependent on one another. We trust our fans will keep us centered on both.”
