Joe Barbieri is a fascinating anomaly. An outsider who outside the industry's track has been able to build a personal path and which has succeeded in the rare result of conveying the genuine appreciation of colleagues, critics and the audience.

He released 5 albums of original songs so far ("In Parole Povere" 2004, "Maison Maravilha" 2009, "Respiro" 2012, "Cosmonauta Da Appartamento" 2015 and "Origami" 2017), as well as a live cd + dvd ("Maison Maravilha Viva" 2010) recorded at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome and and two albums dedicated to his heroes in vocal jazz: Chet Baker ("Chet Lives!"2013), and Billie Holiday ("Dear Billie” 2019).

His music (sold in tens of thousands of copies) is released in many countries of the world, and his personal stylistic code - which links the pop to jazz to world music - has led him over the years to collaborate with colleagues in each of these musical genres (from Omara Portuondo to Stefano Bollani, from Stacey Kent to Luz Casal, from Jorge Drexlerto Hamilton De Holanda) and to play on some of the most prestigious stages on the planet.

Joe Barbieri is one the most appreciated Italian authors, and he has often preferred women's voices as interpreters of his songs over the years.

The tour and album celebrating Joe Barbieri's 30-year career

In October 2022 Joe Barbieri embarked on a special tour to celebrate the 'pearl wedding', the three decades of marriage between Joe Barbieri and music.

This series of concerts included hints of Joe's debut songs, as well as some songs that had never or hardly ever been performed live before, all supported by the unmissable presence of many of the Neapolitan singer-songwriter's greatest hits.
On stage, in addition to Joe (with his voice and unfailing guitar), will be Pietro Lussu (piano), Bruno Marcozzi (percussion and drums) and Daniele Sorrentino (double bass).

Simultaneously with the tour, the eponymous album was also released on 7 October 2022: 'Tratto Da Una Notte Vera', his thirteenth album; a live anthology album (a translation in live form of the studio album released last year entitled 'Tratto Da Una Storia Vera') recorded during a concert at the Teatro Forma in Bari.
The new disc contains not only the best of Barbieri's repertoire, but also three bonus tracks, including the recent single 'Retrospettiva Futura' and 'Maravilhosa Avventura', the song Joe wrote dedicating it to his fans.
