Joe Tellmann is a 16 year old guitar player from Springboro, Ohio. He started playing the guitar when he was just 8 years old and hasn’t put it down since! Joe has played many genres of music in his young career, but has gravitated to Blues as his favorite expression of guitar skill, songwriting, and love for performing.
The Joe Tellmann Band has been together for about 2 years. Along with Joe on guitar and vocals, the band includes Justin Swan on bass and Jake Luckett on drums. They play a variety of traditional blues, blues-rock, and original music.
Joe works hard to master blues music and has received multiple scholarships to guitar camps, including those from the Pinetop Perkins Foundation and Generation Blues. He will attend the Pinetop Perkins Foundation guitar and recording workshop Master Class in Clarksdale, Mississippi again in 2016, and is looking forward to a week of focusing on music and rekindling friendships with friends from past years at camp.
