Joe Brooks

Joe is just 23 and already quite the song-writer and singer in England. At 16, he was inspired by a Derrin Nauendorf performance. That was the beginning of a new life for him, teaching himself how to play the guitar. He soon started posting his songs on MY SPACE.

He attended Mountbatten Secondary School and Barton Peveril College. After graduation Brooks attended the University of Bath to study Sport before dropping out to work on his music. It was during this time that he wrote and recorded his most played song, "Superman", based on a girl he liked at school. He also released a self published CD title M a y b e  T o m o r r o w.

“If I could be your superman,
I’d fly you to the stars and back again.”

MY SPACE really boosted Brook's career. The Internet has really been the major factor in Joe's success. He has a devoted fan base of millions. Brooks follows in the tradition of Simon & Garfunkel, Damien Rice and James Blunt by melding confessional lyrics with heartfelt, melodic tracks. To me, his songs echo a bit of how John Mayer used to be, before his major success. Joe's thoughts put to music with such a sincere voice makes him very listenable. Hopefully, Joe's success will not ruin his song writing. I have to admit John Mayer's best songs were his early songs.

In 2010 Joe Brooks moved to Los Angeles. He signed on to Lava Records.

I'm really enjoying his debut CD. He's also simply adorable too.
