"Hippie Famous"



There is no other music artist - or character in general - like Smilin’ Joe.

A native of the Upper Ohio Valley, Smilin’ Joe has been described as a “hippie icon” of the U.S. Swing arms at any music festival in the Eastern United States and you will likely hit at least a few people who are personal friends of Smilin’ Joe.

This widespread notoriety is the byproduct of decades spent  sharing tunes with fellow music lovers and musicians during travels from show to show, primarily in the tri-state region around Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and more recently, across the nation. His rise from fan to featured act came by way of the grassiest of grassroots journeys, an ongoing venture that promises to break new ground in 2014.
