Joe Thompson (aka Bald Joey) - Releases New Album

Post  Rodger on Sat Jun 05, 2010 2:15 pm



I recently read about this talented bald musician, Joe Thompson in a local paper.
Yankee Twang is officially on sale. Head to the store.

This is from his website baldjoey.com

Are ya'll ready for a lil Yankee Twang?!! The CD Release is finally set and we will be blowing the doors off of Rockwood Music Hall on Thursday June 17th during a special double set from 8 till 10! Tell your friends. Tell your parents. Tell your cousins and their kids. This will be the the Catastrophe show of all Catstrophe shows, I promise. Join us after the performance for a special cocktail reception at The Village Pour House. Details coming soon!

Thompson said that “Yankee Twang” has “a direction more in pure country roots,” adding that he didn’t know if that was a conscious decision.


“Everything is a little closer to the bone on this record,” he said. The inspiration from his songs comes from a variety of places, including the music he listens to and what’s going on in life around him. He said that it’s “a mixed bag” and that it can be anywhere from humorous to tragic.

A mixologist and bartender, Thompson used his skills to create a cocktail companion list to compliment his upcoming album release. He said he thought “it would be cool if each song had its own cocktail.” Some of the cocktails are “Sweet Texas Waltz,” “Blue NYC” and “Lucky Mistake.” “It was kind of a fit of inspiration,” Thompson said of the creations.

It would be cool if he gave us his professional opinion of those horse racing triple crown cocktails we posted.

This city fella is more Emerson Drive and Dierks Bentley than Skynard or that shrill screamin' Daughtry. This dude can sing.

It's a honor having a talent like Joe stopping by this place. Joe's publicist just shared this info with the administration here at The Headshaver.

From Joe's publicist - "I wanted to drop you a note to tell you that Joe's created a series of cocktails that were inspired by songs on his new album.


Joe also created the first in a series of instructional videos that show viewers how to make his delicious cocktails, and his first video for "Luisa! Luisa!" can be seen here: http://www.baldjoey.com/fr_tunznbooze.cfm

And, to go along with the delicious cocktails, we're also creating a printed Yankee Twang Companion Guide with all of the recipes. To thank your community for their support, we'd like to offer a free companion guide to all members of HeadShaveCenter with the purchase of Joe's cd. Love to know what you think about that!


Lastly, Joe was recently chosen to represent Queens in the WNYC Battle of the Boroughs! Voting is now going on online and we'd love it if his bald brothers would come out and vote for him! Vote for Joe's amazing performance here:

Awesome audio in that video. The tune is very infectious.

Seems Joe's home turf is the same as another fine singer, Big Mike Lynche.

Joe is much better than many of those clowns at this weeks CMT Awards.

His music would certainly sell well over here in the land of the bayou and gators.
