ABOUT

ENGLISH

Guitarist born and raised in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland, Joe Colombo debuted at the beginning of the new millennium with an explosive instrumental album under the label Comet/Horizons. “Natural Born Slider” establish Joe as one of the best and most original blues slide guitarist thanks to his unique and personal style. In 2003 and 2004 he participated on the double release tribute to Jimi Hendrix  “Voodoo Crossing” and “Gypsy Blood”, along with international artists such as Robben Ford, Steve Lukather, Larry Coryell and Hiram Bullock. Joe spent long periods between 2004 and 2013 in the United States touring alongside American singer Terry Evans (Ry Cooder, Eric Clapton). In more than twenty years of experience on national and international stages, he has played all over the United States, Canada and Europe, including prestigious blues and jazz festivals.

In 2017 he returned to his personal project recording the instrumental album “StratoSlider”. Today, Joe’s maturity and artistic sensibility combined with his guitar virtuosity allow him to present himself on stage with his power-trio as well as solo and entertain the audience by transmitting energy and passion through his Stratocaster delivering high-energy instrumental shows. Joe uses the slide combined with the fretting technique melting different sounds into a single personal style that has its roots into delta-blues, Texas-blues and music of the sixties.

DISCOGRAPHY

The album has the bluesy, rocking qualities of Joe Bonamassa, the melodic instrumental virtuosity of Joe Satriani and more than a hint of the electric slide guitar wizardry of Johnny Winter…”  Steve Banks – Blues Matters Magazine (UK)
