Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P Nunn, Joe Ely, Auggie Meyers and Larry Joe Taylor–just some of the incredible artists Joe Forlini has shared the stage with over the years. Joe began playing the guitar at a young age and his style pays tribute to his early influences…Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Carlos Santana and Joe Walsh. His guitar mastery shows his love for the art. Joe was born in Detroit, Michigan.
Having lived in Texas for the last 30 years, FORLINI has developed a loyal following of fans. It certainly isn’t easy being a “Guitar Man” in a city that produced such greats as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Johnson, but being in Austin’s charged musical atmosphere, only inspired and motivated FORLINI to develop his enormous talent and unique style.
Recording projects to date include Delbert McClinton, Roy Head, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Bramlet, Rusty Wier, and Larry Joe Taylor.
FORLINI has performed live with Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Bob Seger, Joe Ely, Calvin Russell, Steve Fromholz, Johnny Duncan, Roy Head, Chris Wall, Rusty Weir, Gary P. Nunn, and Larry Joe Taylor.
In demand both as a session player and performer, FORLINI has demonstrated that he has the CHOPS and the EDGE — whether it be Country, Blues, Jazz or Rock!
