Fresh-faced Southampton singer/songwriter Joe Brooks popped into Sally Taylor's Saturday show to play a couple of tracks ahead of his virtually sold out debut UK tour.
Twenty-one year-old Joe's musical tone has a retro feel and his style is best compared to Hawaiian singer Jack Johnson.

A completely DIY singer/songwriter - despite not having released a note, Joe's forthcoming UK tour has practically sold out as a result of his dedicated 'virtual' audience on MySpace.
His online tracks on the social networking site have received over 12 million plays, making him the top unsigned UK artist on the site.
Joe heads out on his debut tour with a full five-piece band, although he'll be keeping his sound clean and simple: "One thing I wanted specifically not to do is lose that acoustic sound, so it's always going to revolve around the acoustic guitar."
