Joe Myers

Musician:  Utah * Spirit Place  *Spirit Planet * Tukuhnikivatz

Myers (acoustic and electric guitars) music encompasses not only a variety of influences and styles, but often art forms as well — a kind of acoustic and electric soup — with hart guitars, drop tunings and poetic lyrics. Myers is a physical and percussive player, absolute energy through an instrument.  This dynamic of songwriter and singer, his instrumental acuity, and the spirit and vitality of his music are what make Myers so distinct as a soloist.  His versatility is evident in the range of players Myers has opened for, including Adrian Belew, the Neville Brothers, Steve Morse, Adrian Lang, and Tori Amos.

Following Myers most recent CD, Sonoran Snake Lady (August 1994), he has been featured in newspapers and entertainment magazines, on radio and in television shows.  The album, which is bound in a wooden box, has nearly sold out in less than a year.  Myers is a featured artist in KZON’s Studio Z Live program and regularly on the play list with cuts from both of his albums including songs from his first CD House with Nine Rooms.  Myers was named “Experimental Artist of the Year” by Arizona Entertainment Awards (1991), and voted “Best Male Soloist” (1993) as part of the prestigious “Best of Phoenix” Awards published yearly in the “New Times, Arts and Entertainment” magazine.
