JOE DOYLE is a hit Nashville songwriter, but his musical journey began in Rhode Island. Joe was raised as the youngest of seven children in Riverside, a small town along Narragansett Bay. Music was an ever-present element in a household of six older siblings. Top 40 radio became a passion for Joe as early as the first grade. By the age of twelve, after watching a Paul McCartney and Wings special on TV, he knew he had to start playing a musical instrument. As luck would have it, his older brother had an old Ludwig snare drum gathering dust in the basement. Joe asked his folks if he could take drum lessons and that is where his musical journey began.
It was at Berklee College of Music in Boston that Joe was first introduced to jazz and the idea of learning to play guitar and piano. The inspiration to write songs soon followed. Joe was lucky enough to win a couple of songwriting contests at Berklee, which in turn gave him the courage to move to Nashville upon graduation and "give it a try."
Joe was very fortunate upon his arrival in Music City in January of '88. Country music was booming. He signed his first publishing deal in April, only a few penniless months after his move to Nashville. In Joe's ten years with BMG Music Publishing, his songs were recorded by the likes of Reba McEntire, Joe Diffie, Dan Seals, Daryle Singletary, Linda Davis, Martina McBride, Deryl Dodd and many others. Joe penned the #1 single "In Pictures" for Alabama and the top ten single "She Said Yes" for Rhett Akins.
Joe's second decade in Nashville as a staff songwriter has included stints with Acuff-Rose, Murrah Music, Amylase Entertainment and Warner Chappell Music. Artists covering his songs include Kenny Rogers, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Blaine Larsen, and most recently Mallary Hope's single "Blossom in the Dust" for Universal Records.
THE LITTLE COMPTON BAND is a musical team rooted in the backwoods of Little Compton, Rhode Island. Known for their diverse musical interests, the band members play captivating sets ranging in genre from reggae to jazz to Southern rock. The band is available for baby showers, space shuttle missions, and everything in between. The LCB is Silas Campbell (keys/guitar/vocal), Silas Peckham-Paul (bass/vocal), Evan Poitras (drums/vocal), Atticus Allen (strings n' things/vocal), Jimi O'Conner (guitar/vocal).
