Joe Rian & The A.M. Drinkers
Joe Rian has what one might describe as an interesting life. The Chicago based singer was adopted as an infant and raised in Rock Falls, Illinois. He moved out of the U.S. Midwest after flunking out of college and scraped a living by working multiple minimum wage grinds. His main gig was sweating away at a gold and silver refinery on the west side of Phoenix, AZ. Other jobs included telemarketing, pouring concrete, releasing and then chasing hot air balloons, moving appliances, and a very short stint collecting outstanding debts for…well, for some people you didn’t want to cross.
In 1989, he won an American Stratocaster signed by Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan via a radio contest. Then, pure chance found him at the last ever Stevie Ray Vaughan concert. After moving to Chicago, he worked at Buddy Guy’s Legends and busked the streets of the “Windy City.” He doesn’t, however, see himself as a strict bluesman, although of course there’s an element of electric blues in his music. He also draws on elements of roots rock, country and folk. It makes for a musical melting pot and songs that Joe Rian feels are best "consumed in your local tavern."
