"Bad Honesty" (v27)

::Headliner::
GOH [Voice & Guitar]
Acoustically, Goh embraces a single guitar to create drum beats, percussive grooves, bass lines, and memorable melodies all at the same time. As an electric 'pedalist' guitarist he tweaks, bends, and twists soundscapes. Emphasizing honest musical emotions, his original compositions/arrangements are influenced by everything from folk and classical music to Paco de Lucia (flamenco), Western jazz-genres, Jeff Beck, and heavy metal (hard rock). Goh tours Japan and the US West Coast regularly, and his itinerary include festival dates and school workshops in Taiwan, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.

Guitarist Andrew York, formerly of the Grammy Award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet states "Having exceptional ability in both classical and jazz genres is very rare; Joe excels in both styles." Andy Ellis, senior editor of Guitar Player magazine stated "LoPiccolo's impeccably executed, imaginative arrangements reveal his mastery of the guitar and its most subtle timbres."
