Curly Joe is singer / songwriter Neil Wise from Melbourne, Australia. An engaging acoustic artist, with eclectic influences from Beatles through the singer / songwriters of the Bob Dylan, Paul Simon & Paul Kelly, to newer artists like Jack Johnson, Carus Thompson & Pete Murray.
Insightful but tolerably intolerant views of the world are inside Curly's head. Folk-rock songs or storytelling with attitude are the centrepiece of Curly Joe sets. Lyrically intriguing with melodic and memorable choruses, provide an entrancing experience with stories of life & love & the people (especially women) that he struggles to understand. Acoustic Guitar, mandolin & harmonicas bring these songs a vibrant and uplifting experience.
Having played at the 2009 Queenscliff Music Festival in "Telstra Road to Tamworth" heat, the 2011 Australian Songwriters Showcase at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and also performing supports for major Australian Artists such as James Reyne, Rose Tattoo, Don Walker, Colin Hay and The Angels. He performs regularly in Melbourne venues & local festivals and continues to write new and dynamic material. His debut solo album "Fight Fair", produced by renowned Australian artist Paul Norton was released July 2010. A set with Curly Joe is an experience not to be missed.
