Joey Wit and The Definition
As he sings in his song, Throwing Stones, “...I’m a son to the North and a brother to the South”, Joey Wit’s story is just as unique and original as his sound. As a former professional athlete, it would seem Joe dedicated the majority of his life and childhood to the game of baseball. However, music was just as important as athletics in his upbringing. Growing up in a household with parents whose record collection included everything from Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy and Elvis Presley to Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones, it’s easy to see how the Connecticut native gravitated towards rock and roll. After spending several years in the American Southeast (Durham, NC) working on his musical craft, Wit returned home to New England in 2015 and started recruitment for his rock and roll outfit, now known as The Definition (Clay Selmont-Guitar, Guido Falivene-Bass, Nate Manware-Drums, Nathanael Oakes-Keys). Drawing on inspiration from countless sources such as the Beatles, Radiohead, Wilco, Doves and Ryan Adams; Joey Wit and The Definition offer an innovative and energetic approach to rock and roll with a little something every music fan can appreciate.
The Let Loose
We're a hot stewpot of rock and roll ready to serve up the sounds you can move your body to. Inspired by the pioneers of rock and roll, blues, country, funk, and soul, The Let Loose was formed by five friends just having a good time with no plans to quit. We're hellbent on quality music with a zero tolerance for bullshit. We're dedicated to you.
A drummer since I was young.
Now I write and record original music, and perform it across CT, MA, and NY. I take a lot of inspiration from Alex Turner, Elliot Smith, Hippo Campus, Cage the Elephant, Death Cab For Cutie, Father John Misty, and The Strokes, so if you like those guys you might find my stuff listenable. Look out for show announcements and new music releases
