Deaf Joe's second full-length album, 'From The Heights Of A Dream', has been finished and will be released late September 2013. It's a sonically rich and dense album, brimming with imaginative use of noise and sound. Each track manipulates acoustic instruments and field recordings in order to tell its story. A narrative runs through the album, stringing its consitituent parts together. Its physical release will be accompanied by a book, made in collaboration with visual artist Paul Hallahan.
Joe's debut album, 'Burrowings' was released February '12 through Dublin's Delphi Label (www.delphilabel.com). He is constantly writing and recording and has a significant number of theatre and contemporary dance scores under his belt, alongside a host of collaborations with visual artists.
"Joe emerges pearl-like from his shell. Sublime songs and divine inspiration; a potent mix." - Donal Dineen, Today FM
