Musician:  Joe Crump
Joseph Crump is a singer/songwriter & guitarist from Texas. Music has always been an extremely important part of his life. He learned the viola when he was ten, piano when he was 12, but only the guitar has really stuck with him. He learned when he was 15 and he hasn’t put it down since. He joined a band in high school and later, while attending college, a more serious band called Riverside. They had their ups and downs; the ups included packing out bars in Waco, recording two albums and an EP, and playing all over Texas and in New Mexico and Colorado. They even won a battle of the bands contest with a San Antonio radio station— their prize was to open for Chris Cagle and Asleep at the Wheel in front of a couple thousand people! But Joseph took a break from music to pursue a career as a teacher. His years as an educator have been filled with joy and gratification, but he kept feeling like something was missing. Increasingly unable to ignore the itch, he rekindled his relationship with music. He has been writing & recording songs, performing either solo acoustic or with phenomenal musicians! He is available for live performance, recording, songwriting or guitar lessons.
