Joe Vitale Jr. is the son of legendary veteran Rock n' Roll drummer Joe Vitale. He has spent the bulk of his life growing up on the road with such acts as Joe Walsh, Crosby Stills & Nash, Dan Fogelberg, The Eagles, and many others. After nine dedicated years, Joe Jr. has finally completed his first solo album. The uniqueness of Joe's sound derives from his use of Rock and Industrial influences. Joe Vitale Jr. is not only a multi-instrumentalist (Guitar, Drums, Vocals, Keyboards, Bass, etc.) but is also a digital audio engineer.
Over the past nine years, Joe has been working for Sony Media Software creating loop libraries (Latin Percussion, Junkyard Rhythms, Organ Donor, and the recently released Vital Drums: The Vitale Collection) for ACID as well as doing the digital audio editing work on the 2005 Stephen Stills' album "Man Alive." The work completed on that album won Stephen Stills a Humanitarian award from Unicef for the song "Feed the People." He also was the digital editor and pre-mastering engineer on the Stephen Stills album, "Just Roll Tape." Joe Vitale Jr. presented at the 2007 and 2008 NAMM shows as a key speaker for Sony describing work done on several music videos he directed.
These songs reflect Joe's struggles and triumph over adversity, as well as a fun escape for the listener. This powerful album contains the singles "Beautiful Girl," "You Make Me Feel Alive," and the title cut "Dancing With Shadows."
