About this week’s artist:
Joe Thebeau is a singer, songwriter, and home recordist based in St. Louis, MO. He often connects and weaves themes through the songs on an album to create worlds of imagery and characters interacting to tell stories of suburban life. “Songwriting and album composition is an art and a craft that has saved my life on several occasions.” – Joe Thebeau
Joe’s most recent album with his band Finn’s Motel is called Fireworks or Lightning, a cinematic soundtrack to a story set in suburban and rural Illinois. It’s a tale of disaffected youth, vandalism, death, rebirth, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and UFO sightings.
