Joe Crites

Live Music 5-8pm

All Ages

Raised in a small, West Virginia town, Joe Crites has been infused with traditional, roots-based
music from the very start. From the high-lonesome, bluesy sounds of his father’s bluegrass banjo
to the old, familiar church hymns taught to him around his mother’s piano, music has been a
cornerstone of his life.
However, music took center stage for Joe, when, in his early teens he happened upon a concert
by a legendary Christian rock band, DC Talk. This chance encounter would forever change the
course of his life. “I remember walking up over a little embankment of the amphitheater and as
the stage came into view I saw the smoky stage, felt the bass in my chest, heard the rock n’ roll
guitars, the deafening crowd–I was hooked.” Upon graduating high school he moved to Atlanta,
Georgia for one year to study music at the Atlanta Institute of Music where he took his guitar
abilities to the next level.
All of these past experiences have shaped Joe Crites and his music into what it is today; a brand
of music rooted in traditional country and branches out into rock, blues, bluegrass and beyond.
“When I play for a live crowd it’s not about me, it’s about the fans. All the hard work that it takes
to put on a show is worth it so the fans have a memory that they will never forget.”
Joe’s first release, “He Is Risen,” is a nod to one of his childhood influences, Zag Pennell, who
originally wrote the song as an anthem for the Easter season.
“I figured this cover song would be a great place to start and now that I have some momentum I
plan to release singles for the fans every few months.”
