About Joe Driscoll

Joe Driscoll is a one-of-a-kind artist, with a sound located at the crossroads of folk and hip-hop. One of the originators of the beatbox looping sound, Time Out Magazine referred to him as a “sonic wonderkid who creates his own 21st century ‘folk’ live onstage”.

His recent album with Guinean Kora Virtuoso Sekou Kouyate, “Monistic Theory” reached #1 on both the iTunes and Amazon World Music Charts. He has collaborated and created with artists including Nicholas Mulvey, Kate Tempest, Jamie Woon, Reeps One (Male Beatbox World Champ), Bellatrix (Female Beatbox World Champ), and Dizraeli (UK Slam Poetry Champ).

He has performed globally at venues including the Glastonbury and Womad Festivals, Ireland’s Electric Picnic, Kenya’s Rift Valley Festival, Russia’s Platonov Arts Festival, California’s Joshua Tree Festival, France’s De Bout Du Monde, Germany’s Fusion Festival, Zanzibar’s Sauti Za Busara, Holland’s Festival Mundial, and Malawi’s Lake Of Stars. Winner of the UK Indy Award for Best Solo Artist, he has been a featured artist on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and NBC’s “Late Night With Carson Daly.”
