Award nominated guitarist and composer Joseph Sullinger began playing guitar at the age of six on a classical guitar he acquired from his mother Julia, a concert pianist and music teacher. His father Dwight is also a music teacher, and currently the principal tuba player for the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra. Joseph is mainly a self-taught guitarist who reached a high level of performance and composition at a young age. With an interest in rock music, he became a major player in the Dallas Texas music scene and has performed in concert line-ups with numerous international recording artists including Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath.
In 2006 Joseph relocated from the United States to Mexico where he began a career of music, teaching classical guitar and performing extensively. In 2008 he signed with Eroica Classical Recordings releasing the album Popular Classical Guitar with music from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Romantic periods, and two original compositions entitled Sailing and Mi Amor. In 2010 he released Classical Guitar Christmas Favorites, followed by the all original album Earth Voyage which was nominated Best World Music Album of 2012, appearing in the ZMR World Top 100 Radio Airplay Chart for 7 months. His recordings have been used in television in the UK, Sweden, and the USA, most notably in the National Geographic Channel’s series The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Milan.
