Joe had already built a reputation for playing solo or with his band around London in the late Eighties when in 1992 he first toured Europe with the Mick Clarke band (guitarist with Killing Floor) playing support to many major bands including Canned Heat. Having spent a year writing and playing in Australia with members of Australian Crawl and the Black Sorrows, Joe returned to London where in 1995 he was winner of the Golden Plectrum Musician of the Year award. In 1996 the success of his first e.p. 'ask me for the truth' brought him bookings at festivals such as Big Green Gathering, Buddha Field and Bracknell. Over the next four years he went on to include Camberwell, He has also performed over the last few years at festivals including Filey, Alchemy, Festival 8 and Cottingham Springboard. Vixen FM featured a set of unreleased piano songs on the 'foxes den' radio show, and unit number 7 have been played a number of times on humberside fm.

Joe Quillin is a great entertainer and adapts his set well to his meet with his audience. He employs an easy conversational style and this, combined with a comfortable variety of songs and piano pieces made a lovely accompaniment to our ‘Romantic Valentine’s Night Pie & Pea Supper’ in 2020. We will be welcoming him back soon!

Joe was excellent each time he played at the West Malvern Social Club's Music Night. He was always the favourite act, with his excellent piano playing and offbeat style. Highly recommended!
