He goes to Lynnfield High School, where he played football. He plays guitar for his buddy “psanders” and has opened for Sammy Adams and Jake Miller.

Versatility and Influence.
Joe is a very versatile artist, he plays guitar, bass, piano and drums, as well as having an outstanding singing voice. He is a self written, self produced performer. The biggest influence and inspiration for his music is his sister Gianna. She was the one who got him started posting online. Sadly, she passed on after a battle with cancer, at age 15, he said he “does it all for her.”
Do you have any upcoming projects?
” Yes! Some music videos and an EP titled “Reality.” My sister came up with the title before she passed away and I’ve been working on it for over a year now. It’s a concept album on how cruel and random life and the world can really be…This EP is like my baby.”
**Smoothwaves is excited to announce that we’re partnering with Joe on the release of his EP!**
What sets Joe Dias apart.
“I’m trying to bring the realness back to music. Too many artists out there are buying beats online, trying to mimic other artists. I’m myself. I hope people won’t be able to compare me to any famous artist. I want to be me. I want to share the story of my sister. I want to prove to the world that the kid all the teachers gave dirty looks in class and thought wouldn’t ever make it can, and will.”
Last album you listened to the whole way through?
“Frank Ocean – Nostalgia, Ultra . It’s one of those albums that can just take you to another place and time.”
Favorite song right now?
“Cheer up-Skizzy Mars. My friend Danielle got me to check him out. “
