Joe Vitale Jr. is the son of legendary veteran Rock n’ Roll drummer Joe Vitale. He has spent the bulk of his life growing up on the road with such acts as Joe Walsh, Crosby Stills & Nash, Dan Fogelberg, The Eagles, and many others. Joe Vitale Jr. is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, drums, vocals, synth & bass) and has performed with Joe Walsh, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and The Stephen Stills Blues Band. Joe’s received critical acclaim for digital audio editing and engineering on three of Stephen Stills solo projects, including the 2005 Stephen Stills’ album “Man Alive” which won Stills the Humanitarian Award from Unicef for the song “Feed the People,” the 2007 Stephen Stills album, “Just Roll Tape” and the 2009 Stephen Stills live DVD/CD “Live at Shepherd’s Bush” from London.
After ten dedicated years, Joe Vitale Jr. has completed his first solo album, “Dancing With Shadows.” The uniqueness of Joe’s sound derives from his use of Rock & Industrial influences... Songs such as “Dancing With Shadows,” “I Don’t Belong Here,” “Break!,” Mysterious,” “Never Look Back,” & “Fight It or Self Destruct” reflect highly emotional strength and determination in triumphing over life’s adversities, while relationship songs “Beautiful Girl,” “Infectious,” “You Make Me Feel Alive,” and ballads “I Only Need You” and “By The Shoreline” complete the range of mood and feel of this dynamic debut album.
