Joe Bourne is an award winning vocalist, well known in European circles for what he has achieved in the popular, light music genre. He always seems to capture the audience with his own style and warm mellifluous light baritone, voice and his dynamic showmanship.

Joe is a popular performer in the Tucson area as well as around the states and abroad.

However the roots of this talented singer/entertainer are anchored deeply in the Jazz, blues and spiritual music. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he was inspired by many of the big names of Jazz that toured the Boston area.

While performing on the German cruise ship MS Europa as it sailed between Manaus, Brazil and Cape Town, South Africa, Joe was “bit” by the painting bug after attending a class in watercolors. Since then, he has attended several artists’ workshops and created many paintings in watercolors, acrylics and encaustics – a painting style that uses hot beeswax and resin.

The paintings are mostly influenced by his concert travels around the world, and he derives new inspiration from the forms and rhythms of our big Southwestern skies, mountains and deserts. His art is often embellished with unique finds, such as copper splashes, metal tubing, gemstones and various papers.
