About

Singer-Songwriter-Poet

Troubadour

Joe hails from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta just a little North of Edmonton.  Influenced by roots-music gentry like Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Lucinda Williams and Bob Dylan, Nolan reflects on his vagabond lifestyle that takes him to festivals and venues spread throughout Canada's peaks and valleys. A typical year will see him playing anywhere from 150 - 200 shows; he is a true workhorse and road dog.

During Nolan's illustrious career he's recorded with JUNO award winning producers Colin Linden and Hawksley Workman, won several Cobalt Prize songwriting awards at the Maple Blues Awards, earned a handful of BreakOut West nominations, as well as a 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award nod for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year for Drifters.

Joe’s 2022 album, Lost Verses grew from notes collected in his most private journals, revealing the inner thoughts of a prolific artist who expresses longing, love, and remorse with powerful melodies, primarily picked on his signature parlour guitar.

“An Americana wunderkind to look out for…” The Globe & Mail
