Being at the age of 25 years, Joe Brooks has a wide fan base coming from Europe, America, and Asia. He first started off by writing his own songs and posting it on MySpace, getting over 30,000 plays a day. He soon hit the U.K.’s highest-ranking unassigned artist. It can clearly be seen that he is a self-motivator as he taught himself to play guitar, which made him the Joe Brooks today.

Currently based in Los Angeles, this  Great Britain singer/songwriter’s highly anticipated latest album titled “The Boy and The Broken Machine,” was released late 2012. Having some of his early inspirations such as Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, and Ray Charles, Joe expanded his horizon of song makers who inspired him, including Jack Johnson, Rob Thomas, and Damien Rice. Without doubt, his new music certainly captured new ears.
