CelloJoe's adventures

CelloJoe is an anomaly in the world of cellists.

By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: classical hip hop. Looped and layered beatboxing beats (vocal percussion) and funky cello form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics; CelloJoe spreads joy, laughter and consciousness raising vibrations.

CelloJoe rides his bicycle with his cello and has traveled from San Francisco, California to the bottom of Mexico; from Portland, OR to Vancouver, BC; from Logan to Provo, Utah; and in England, Holland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, France, and Spain with the Pleasant Revolution.

Here’s my song Digital Addiction. People keep asking me if I have a recording of it. I have a bunch of them, but this one was recorded at my CD release party in March and it’s the best version I have so far. So here it is! Please share widely, especially in person! You can download it free or you can name your price for it and donate at http://cellojoe.bandcamp.com/track/digital-addiction
