Joe Doyle Joe was born in Providence, Rhode Island and raised as the youngest son of seven children in Riverside, a small town along Narragansett Bay. Music was an ever-present element in a household of six older siblings. "I recall waking up to my sisters spinning James Taylor and Carole King records, my brothers listening to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and many other artists that continue to inspire me to this day." Top 40 radio became a passion for Joe as early as the first grade. Jonathan Edwards "Sunshine" and Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth" were a couple of his first "45" purchases.
Joe played drums in the "rock and roll' trio Crazy Fingers with friends Gary France and Mark Miller throughout high school, performing in various Providence nightclubs and University campuses. It was at Berklee College of Music in Boston that he first became 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 1988, 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 numerous others, including the #1 single "In Pictures" for Alabama and the top ten single "She Said Yes" for Rhett Akins. Joe's next 15 years in Nashville as a staff songwriter has included stints with Acuff-Rose, Tom Collins Music, Murrah Music, Amylase Entertainment, Warner Chappell Music and Dan Hodges Music. With additional artists covering his songs such as Kenny Rogers, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Blaine Larsen, Tracy Byrd, Jason Charles Miller, Josh Pruno, Michael Ray, Abi Ann, Miles Williams and Mallary Hope's single "Blossom in the Dust" for Universal Records. In December of 2014, Craig Wayne Boyd, NBC's "The Voice" winner, performed Joe's song "In Pictures", on the season finale and released it as a digital single, debuting at #3 on Billboard's digital country sales chart.
