We are sending you this email as an introduction. Much of our information is offered on our very comprehensive website.

We hope that this contact is useful to you and that you will appreciate our work.

The new album is written and being rehearsed now. Recording facilities are being considered.

Joe & Sheila share a common heritage of Irish & Native American traditions that comes from the Appalachian region of Kentucky and West Virginia, now based in Ann Arbor/Detroit, Michigan.

They have used their experiences and their visions in the writing of this profound recording.

A perfect blend of Universal and Timeless Americana, Folk, Bluegrass, & World music with powerful lyrics and beautiful voices.

With that in mind, we ask you to consider Joe Kidd & Sheila Burke.

Their debut CD release, "Everybody Has A Purpose," was released in late 2015.

With songs like the highly charged "Soldiers In The Army Of Mercy & Peace," which immediately received the 2015 Global Music Award for Folk Song Of The Year, and the universally uplifting title track, this record becomes a must for all audiences.

It has been described as sounding more like a career-spanning greatest hits album than a debut CD.

"Soldiers In The Army Of Mercy & Peace" has been chosen and is receiving airplay and great response in the Holy Land at the borders of conflict between Israel, Palestine, & Lebanon.

Joe & Sheila received back-to-back Detroit Music Awards for World Music Songwriters Of The Year in 2013 & 2014.

While onstage at Detroit's 2015 Concert Of Colors, they were presented with a Michigan Governor's Award for Artistic Excellence and their efforts for Social Justice, Peace, & Cultural Diversity by their State Representative.

On June 1, 2017, Joe Kidd was inducted into the Michigan Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

The song "They Call It Romantic" received the World Songwriting Award - Best Duo in December 2018.

Joe & Sheila have appeared in Mexico (Hyatt Ziva Resort Hotel), Ontario, Canada, and across the USA from Brooklyn, NY (17 Frost Theater), to Nashville, TN (Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge), to Hollywood, CA (Genghis Cohen Theater). They appeared in Joshua Tree, CA (JT Saloon), Serpent Mound, Ohio, The Ark (legendary folk venue) in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to name a few concert appearances.

Michigan/Midwest region shows are too many to mention. A short list of recent appearances is documented in the TOUR section of our official website.

The record is enjoying international airplay in the UK, Israel, South Africa, Mexico, Australia, Germany, and more, as well as countless radio and internet stations across America.

It recently received the Soldiers Of Peace Award from Ear 2 The Ground Music Blog NYC.

The CD is also receiving unanimous critical praise (as evidenced on the official website).

It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Amazon UK, and all great outlets.

The last track on the CD, "Waiting For That Flower To Bloom," is also featured on the new benefit compilation album titled "Songs For Standing Rock Vol 5".
