Average Joey is a traveling folk musician, street savvy songwriter, radical poet and zinester. His songs bounce around stylistically between cheeky country tunes, lyrical punky banjo songs, and explicitly anti-capitalist folky storytelling. Joey’s poetry ranges from the vulnerable personal narrative to politically poignant critiques of unjust systems of power. His live show mixes song, poetry, a-capella group singing, and storytelling – all sprinkled with doomsday humor as well as urgent invitations to build a better world together.
