2023 Summer tour!

I’m definitely looking forward to playing out this summer! The 2023 "Unplugged" Summer Tour is on! I will be playing tunes from my 2015 release "Crossing Over' plus a smattering of new originals that I plan to release soon! I'll also be adding some new cover songs into the sets along with some tunes that you will recognize from past shows. Please check the schedule for dates. I've also posted some videos on this page that showcase some of the new tunes I've been working on. If you are looking to book a show for the summer tour, contact me by email: jnewtz007@msn.com or call (724) 494-6383.

Western Pennsylvania singer-songwriter Joe Newtz has been writing songs for more than two decades and he seems to have a lot of diverse musical influences and manages to fuse them into a signature sound. This speaks well for his songwriting talent as you can hear influences ranging from Gregg Allman to Pearl Jam, from Chris Isaak to R.E.M.

The music trends towards rock and he shows an undeniable knack for catchy song hooks with melodies that frequently feature set-ups that build into payoff choruses that deliver. His inspired performances showcase a love for making music, which translates into well-crafted and very enjoyable music.  

In 2016, Joe Newtz was placed on the Official Ballot for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards by The Recording Academy in the following categories: Best Rock Performance (‘Falling In’), Best Rock Performance (‘Save Me’), and Best Rock Song (‘Falling In’).
