Joe Brensinger (Joe Burdette)
Joe’s first band was Creyola. They played at various NYC clubs including Max’s Kansas City and released a 45 in 1979 that Joe wrote with vocalist Janis Allen. After that he played in a couple of other NYC bands including Donna Destri.
“I was also writing songs that I would do as a singer songwriter. This eventually developed into Joe Burdette and the New West which had an EP released on Fake Doom Records in 1985.”
During this time he also played with the Neo rockabilly band The Whyos, another band with a release on Fake Doom Records.
After New West, he took some time off to raise his family.
Recently he has been involved with the roots music band The Saddletones and with Brian Fitzpatrick and the Band of Brothers. Band of Brothers released the album Heart of the Black Dirt in 2015. They have been writing new songs and have an upcoming release in the works. Joe also has a band The Hellhounds doing Chicago electric blues that is currently playing some shows in the NY/NJ area.
“I believe that music can unite people and I am happy to be involved with my good friend and fellow musician Steve Nyhoff doing our song Common Ground for Music For World Peace Records.”
