Joe Dunne

Irish Musician, Singer and Composer.

' The Family '

A song that tells the story of your family.
No matter how bruised it is;
no matter how used it is.
At the end of the day,
it's still your FAMILY. 

(Lords Of)The Gold Ring

Dublin - Live Session 

Life is mostly froth and bubbles, two things stand like stone. Kindness  in anothers troubles and courage in your own. Quote by Adam Lindsay Gordan (and my dear mother). One of my Life motto's which has shaped my songs and general outlook on life. 

All I know is that music and the higher power (whatever you concive it to be) has saved my life. Like Jonah though trapped in the whale -still he made it back to the land, and so will you. As the Beatles sang: "With a little help from my friends".

Joe Dunne began playing music at the age of ten and moved to guitar and singing in his late teens. His early musical influences led him to believe he was in the wrong age bracket, being the youngest member of "The Stadiums Audience" Dublins venue  for internationl acts at the time. Joe's two older brothers Declan and Fintan brought  the young brother Joe with them to  the Stadium Gigs, which had a big musical influence on him.

From the ages of 13 -16 years he was present at vast amount of stadium gigs, enjoying the talents of musicians from Harry Chapin(Cats and the Cradle) who Joe met as a young boy,  Loudon Wainwright III, BB King, Al Stewart etc. Later Joe formed the group "SPERANZA" with Tommy Walsh (Starc,Records), this was an experimental Irish folk music band in the 1990's.

One of the many talanted musicains that Joe has collabrated with is the late Thom Moore a song writer, whose songs were recorded by many popular singers in the Irish music business and worldwide. "Joe, your songs give me hope for the human race, all your songs are written for the right couldn't be otherwise, given their obvious character." -Thom Moore.

Joe has played with many diverse musicians and has giged Ireland, Europe and the States. As a youngster he wondered why his brothers brought him to these strange gigs - he is now eternally grateful.
