Joe Willey and the Movin’ Men’s Album Release Party,

Joe Willey and the Movin’ Men are throwing a release party for their first album, “The
Toll,” on Friday February 9th 2018, 8 PM, at Hendershot’s Coffee Bar, 237 Prince
Avenue Athens, GA 30601. They will perform songs from the album as well as some
new material. The band, usually a trio with Joe Willey, John Evans and Dan Horowitz,
will be joined by producer Claire Campbell to sing the title cut and some harmony vocals
here and there. Drummer Jamie DeRevere and champion fiddler Jason Cade will join us
for this show since they are prominently featured in the album. Emily Horton opens the
show with Joe accompanying her.
Joe Willey and the Movin’ Men are an Americana band playing original songs and
tunes written by Joe Willey. Joe’s songwriting is inspired by John Prine, Graham
Parsons, Tom Petty and other songwriters whose songs are compelling and structured
enough for others to enjoy singing. Joe’s music is deeply rooted in blues and folk songs,
and you will hear references to old songs going back even as far as child ballads.
