"F R O M A N Y T O W N I N T H E U . S . A . "
Rising out of the factories of Elizabeth, New Jersey and arriving in the alleyways of East Los Angeles, Rocker / Singer Songwriter JOE NORMAL formed his explosive band The ANYTOWN'rs with L.A. Bassist TONY BABYLON and Drummer TONY SNOW, eventually adding MICHAEL LOCKWOOD on guitar.
Their collective resume includes work, collaborations, and recordings with a diverse array of artists including Dramarama, Izzy Stradlin (Guns 'n Roses), Stiv Bators (Lords of the New Church), Sammy Hagar, Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Howard Stern, Aimee Mann, and many more.
East & West Coast attitude and finesse combine with potent doses of power 'n pop to create a working class sound and style that are unifying music lovers in every pub, community, and concert venue they play from the Garden to the Golden State... and ANYTOWN where common people crave authentic Rock n Roll.
Joe Normal & The Anytown'rs blend the melodic sensibilities and brilliance of classic British Pop, the roots and urgency of early American Rock and Roll, with the heart and insight of a Singer-Songwriter. Songs and sounds are favorably compared by the press to classic artists Paul Westerberg & The Replacements, The Who, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, and even Sir Paul McCartney.
Live shows are a bonding experience between band and audience as Joe spins his stories and strives to make a personal connection with fans in every size venue.
Songs address the themes of working class life and impart a sense of hope to keep going for your dreams, to never give up in-spite of your struggles.
A band that is making an unprecedented impact in an industry that has driven Rock & Roll music underground, America's Best Kept Secret is quickly spreading nationwide...
