About Joe Sun
About Country Music Singer Joe Sun
One of the most soulful singer/stylists in country music, Joe Sun is described vocally by critics as a cross between rocker David Clayton Thomas and folk singer Burl Ives, and called one of the best singers to hit Nashville in 1979 by Johnny Cash. One reviewer deemed him a combination of Tom Waits and Hank Williams. Since Sun burst onto the country charts with his mega-hit Old Flames (Can’t Hold A Candle To You), fans know him for not only his blues-based vocals and interpretive strength, but also for his powerful songwriting skills.
Joe’s motto is: Be true to yourself and beware of crossing a line that puts your scruples in question. His songs reflect this theme of universal truth.
Joe Sun Has Performed Around the World
He has performed his music for audiences all over the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Mexico. He feels just at home playing with Nashville studio musicians as he does with road and house bands, or performing solo in bars, house concerts and listening rooms.
His stories and songs reflect the life and times of a troubadour on the road who opened and performed shows with such diverse artists as Johnny Cash, George Jones, David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Leon Russell, The Everly Brothers and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Joe gears his self-penned songs to entertain all, from the sophisticated city dweller to the urban country kicker, from the socialite to the wall flower, and from the ballroom dancer to the honky tonk two-stepper.
