Joe Dillstrom Live in the Courtyard
Lately I’m finding that I’m not who I thought I was.
Lately I’m finding that the same goes for all of us.

“Highways and Byways”
Joe Dillstrom is a modern troubadour based in the Ozarks. With an understated guitar style and a velvet baritone voice, his warm, intimate, and engaging stage presence aspires to the timelessness of his influences. He is a singer-songwriter in the tradition of James Taylor, Neil Young, Jim Croce, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, and early Tom Waits.
Dillstrom’s songbook consists of his compositions as well as standards from jazz, blues, country, and folk artists from the 30s-70s. He is prone to surprising audiences with evidence of influence by such movers and motivators as Chuck Berry, Hank Williams, and selections from the Great American Songbook. With a subtle, refined delivery that suggests a folky, introspective Nat King Cole, Joe is at once relaxed and assured.
Silvery and smooth as silk, Dillstrom’s maturity as a songwriter and performer is evidenced by the breadth and style of his repertoire. Though nostalgia and homage feel like words for the toolbox when describing Joe’s work, it would be a mistake to call it retroóhe’s not playacting, not doing impressions. Whether it’s his compositions or covers, under his delivery, this work belongs to Joe, and to today.
