When Joe Downing hits town, even the palm trees sway to the music.
With roots in Ohio and Nashville and a soul that feels at home on the sea and on the beach, singer/songwriter Joe Downing is welcome to audiences from Key West to Chicago to San Diego.
A musician who values all genres, particularly country, rock 'n' roll, the blues, and the music of the islands — Joe's music is best described as "Tropical Americana" — and never fails to get the audience moving.
Joe stops by St. Augustine on his coast-to-coast tours, staying a couple of weeks and performing in a number of locations in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach.
"Whether I'm playing for one person or thousands, I always try to give it my all, so that when the audience walks away they say: 'That Joe Downing guy ... I'm going to remember him.'"
