Australian guitar virtuoso Joe Robinson has spent the last few years touring North America playing festivals and headlining clubs. Having also played China, Japan, Europe and Australia, Robinson has been able to define himself as a budding world visionary.
He walks a tightrope between the instrumental music that’s put him in the spotlight and a unique fusion of vocally based rock, blues, jazz, and R&B that’s entirely his own. Displaying his virtuosity on electric guitar as well as acoustic, Joe landed a coveted spot as one of Australian Guitar Magazine’s Top 50 Best Guitarists.
His forthcoming project entitled Gemini will feature his deepest and most creative work to date.
"Once in a great while a young guitarist captures the attention of music lovers early in his career and manages to sustain this interest as he matures creatively and sheds the 'prodigy' label. Joe Robinson is one of those rare talents."
“Australian guitarist Joe Robinson has accomplished what most musicians can only dream of” - NPR
“Robinson's technique is dazzling — his bluesy licks go by in a blur, and his harmonic savvy is apparent in every chord he plays.”
“It’s not hard to imagine him rivaling the popularity of, say, John Mayer in coming years”

The only thing stronger than the musical talents binding together the band Sleepin’ Dogs, a group of four Bishop Brossart High School graduates, is their 12 mile area roots. “I think a cool thing about the band is we’re from southern Campbell County,” said Randy Steffen, 23, the band’s lead singer and songwriter. “It’s country out there. I love it.” The band’s other members are Joe Seiter, 22, bass guitar; Zach Rowe, 21, lead guitar and lap steel guitar; and Adam Record, 23, drummer. All have connections to Northern Kentucky University. Steffen graduated from in December with a bachelor’s degree in radio and television. Rowe is music major, and Seiter is a graphic design major. Record had attended NKU, and is employed as a union iron worker. “It’s a mix between rock and country, what we’ve all grown up with,” Steffen said. (Chris Mayhew)
