Let Go and Let Joe

by Joe Lima

From the haunting cinematic noir of "Kenji" to the gentle folk fingerpicking of "Epiphany, South Dakota," with nods to Jazz, Calypso and Western Swing, Louisiana native Joe Lima swings wildly and never misses. A CD Baby Editor's Pick.

Album Notes
Hugo Award-nominated John Scalzi writes, "Let Go and Let Joe is funny, but it's at least partially that way because the lyrics are sharply observed even as they're amusingly mordant."

Margot Carmichael Lester of The Gig List writes, "Joe's a true troubadour (one of a class of lyric poets and poet-musicians) with a voice that's so smooth and warm you just want to wrap it around you like a cashmere throw."

Michelle E. Malik of NoHoLA calls Joe Lima "a folksy balladeer...with a full bodied sound that evokes the wiles of a Southern, summertime breeze."

From the comic to the tragic and breathlessly back again, Joe's tunes are sweet, sour and savory slices of life, served up with passion and a chunk of spicy pepper jack on the side.

Joe's second CD is available now from CD Baby. We strongly recommend you check out this folky, self-titled extravaganza!


to write a review


unique - slightly odd - interesting
I have listened to Let Joe and it's, well, interesting. Joe's lyrical style is odd, without being comical. Whimsical without being cheap. Musically skilled without being flashy. It's one of those CDs that is beyond classification, like Tom Waits or Lyle Lovett. Not that Joe Lima would ever be confused with the latter since his style is wholly original, but he comes from the same source of American musical sensibility and temperment. Listening to the CD is the only way to truly understand this quirky artist.


A truely GREAT artist, and debut. Fans of ADAM GREENs solo work will love this and his 2nd self-titled album
