Joe Benoit is a singer/songwriter based in New York City. Too Old to Be a Rock Star is his second album of solo material. His songs find him positioned somewhere between hard rock and power pop from the 1970s, jangly pop from the 1960s and alternative rock from the 1990s while still managing to sound fresh and original. Fans of artists such as Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Queen, CSNY, Big Star, The Raspberries, The Replacements, Matthew Sweet, Gin Blossoms, or Soul Asylum should find something to like in Joe’s catalog. His recent music has been featured on many different radio programs across the globe.
As with his first album, Joe co-produced this album with Sam K. Shaw. Joe’s debut solo album Rock and Roll Revolution was released in 2010. The album featured a mix of melodic acoustic tracks and guitar-driven rock and roll. He was the front man, guitarist, and principal songwriter of the New York-based band The Regulars, which was active from 2010 until 2014. During that time, the band released two EPs.
