Joe Jarvis is an award-winning singer-songwriter from the Metro Detroit area. Being born into a musical family, his passion for music and songwriting ignited at a young age, both at home and in church. He is often described as an old soul with a young heart. Despite his nickname, “Smiley”, Joe knows from personal experience that life isn’t always easy, but there’s always hope for tomorrow. His music reflects his desire to help bring hope and positivity into the world with his songs and performances. Joe’s music is fueled by his faith, family and friends.   

Among other accolades, Joe recently won the 2022 Michigan State Fair Superstar Competition. He has also appeared on Fox 2 News Detroit, and has now caught the attention of Nashville media. Joe debuted on the Nashville music scene getting to share his music at the iconic Bluebird Cafe, garnering attention from Nashville Voyager Magazine for an interview. He is currently working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music at Liberty University.  

Over the years, Joe has grown his musical style by taking the best of both old and new influences. His original music can be broadly described as Americana: a blend of pop, country, rock and folk influences.  While Joe and his acoustic guitar “Stache” are nearly inseparable, he also plays drums, keyboard and almost anything with strings on it.  Audiences both young and old alike have been captivated by his hand-clapping, toe-tapping performances. Joe’s songs speak to those who are looking for a light at the end of the tunnel on this wonderful… and sometimes painful, journey we call “life”. 

After self-producing his debut single, “Breaking Ground”, Joe has partnered up with renowned, award-winning Producer, Dale Grisa. Joe is working towards recording his first full length album, including crowd-favorites such as “Again”, “Call It A Day”, and “Walk A Mile”, among others. Be on the lookout for the “Love Is A Verb” album coming out in Summer 2023!
