JOE ROBINSON INTERVIEW #2
(Originally aired on April 26, 2012)
A protégé of Tommy Emmanuel, Joe Robinson hails from Australia, where he started playing guitar at an early age. Now a touring veteran, the then 21-year old has won major contests in the US and Australia, and drawn accolades from such guitarists as Steve Vai, Les Paul, Brent Mason, Lee Ritenour, Brad Paisley, Dweezil Zappa and Steve Cropper. Currently based in Nashville, Robinson had just completed his second album, 2012's Let Me Introduce You. His debut album Time Jumpin' consisted exclusively of acoustic guitar instrumentals, but on this new release, Robinson blazes on electric and adds vocals to his repertoire.
In our exclusive interview, Robinson discusses this musical transition and describes writing and recording the songs on Let Me Introduce You. We'll hear selections from the album throughout the feature.
