A harmonica player, blues shouter and guitar picker, Joe Strouzer sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between. His driving resonator guitar is coupled with true harmonica voodoo and biting songwriting of modern trouble, heartpains, moonlit trysts, drinking and devilment, peppered with a rich history of blues.
On harmonica Joe has supported blues guitar legend Johnny Winter and performed at venues and festivals all over the UK, Europe and America.
His first studio EP, Bottle Broke was released August 2015.
