Joe Bizelli

Joe Bizelli is a singer-songwriter from New Melle, MO who hopes to write a million dollar country song so he doesn’t have to work a day job anymore. About 2 years ago, Joe got to go to The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and listen to 4 professional songwriters. After that night, there was no doubt in his mind that that was what he wanted to do with his life. Since that night, he’s been studying the craft of songwriting, watching interviews of songwriters, reading books, networking, etc. in an effort to become the best writer he can possibly be.
