Starting as a chorister at Exeter Cathedral in 2005, Joe has had opportunities to sing choral music throughout the U.K and overseas. In 2012 he was awarded the Mike Ball Shield from the Royal School of Church Music for an outstanding contribution and under the guidance of singing tutor Cathrine Davies, Joe completed ABRSM Grade 8 and an LCM Diploma in Singing Performance, joining The National Youth Choir of Great Britain in 2012. This has subsequently lead to opportunities including BBC Radio and Television broadcasts, recordings with Audio Network, Delphian, and Signum Records. Notable concerts for Joe have include Monteverdi’s Vespers (Royal Albert Hall, 2012), and Beethoven 9 (Royal Festival Hall, 2015), with the London Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi.

Opportunities at Guildhall, where Joe studies as a baritone under the tutorage of David Pollard and composition with Steve Potter, have included masterclasses and workshops with Sarah Walker, John Ramster and Pamela Lidiard, with additional work with physical theatre company Frantic Assembly. Joe is delighted to be able to support The Wind Up Penguin Theatre Company, in its work with refugee children in Germany & Belgium (2016) and Greece (2017). Recently, Joe has sung with Maria Kesselman in A West End Christmas (The Actors Church, Covent Garden, 2016), and has played the roles of Attilio and Corto in the new musical Mascherato (Milton Court Theatre, 2017), by composer Michael Elderkin.
