Joey Banua a.k.a. Brother Joe is one of Nashville's newest Country/Rock recording artists and up-and-coming record producers. Born and raised in the suburbs of St. Louis, MO, country hasn't always been his scene, but Brother Joe found his country roots while serving at a church amongst the cornfields of Indiana. It was there that he found a passion for telling stories in his songwriting, and found a niche in alternative perspectives. But you better buckle up if you're gonna attend a Brother Joe show!
With a setlist that boasts several Nashville heavy-hitting bops & bangers, Brother Joe will bring energy and grit to the stage, but hold your beer tight... because the show will turn on a dime and you'll be going to CHURCH! Once you hear this voice, you'll never forget it. He's got a rich rock edge, and overwhelmingly pure top notes. Brother Joe's voice even earned him a spot in Hollywood on American Idol Season 11 where he received three vibrant "Yes's" from Randy, J Lo & Steven Tyler.
In 2016 Brother Joe & his wife (Rachel) penned their flagship song "Sirens" which has become an anthem among the first responder community. Many of our world's law enforcement, firefighters, medical, dispatch, rescue & military personnel will often begin or end their shifts with this song. A song that, in Brother Joe style, offers an alternative perspective from the point of view of a first responder's family. Without any marketing or advertising the song took flight on YouTube with 2,000,000 views to date. An honor that Brother Joe could have never seen coming. He plans to release a "Sirens Re-imagined" featuring The Voice Season 6 Alumni Kristen Merlin!
Most recently, you can catch footage of the legendary GARTH BROOKS tearing up as he blind reacts to Brother Joe's newest video for "Remember the Dance" featuring Aelle. This mashup of Garth Brooks' "The Dance" and Lady Gaga's "Always Remember Us This Way" has been landing goosebumps all over TikTok and Facebook as Garth's blind react was on his live radio broadcast and Facebook LiveStream "Inside Studio G".
