Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

My name is Joe McLeod, I am a Toronto based Folk-Pop Singer-Songwriter originally from a small town called Keswick. I like

Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.

My writing style really stems from my love of storytelling. Giving people the opportunity to connect with the words and music I’ve written – that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.

I think some major influences on my writing would be Cat Stevens, Paul McCartney, and Leonard Cohen.

Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?

I am opening up for Limblifter at The Horseshoe Tavern on March 6th. It is the 20th anniversary of their Bellaclava album so it should be a great show!

Even if you’ve never seen me perform, I try to make everyone feel connected through the experience of my music. I love to tell stories, make up verses on the fly, pull up people to sing with me, and honestly just have a good time. I really try to make each show a unique experience, one that we can all share together!

If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?

If you’re interested in hearing my music, I would recommend listening to Walk Me Home. It was my first single so it’s very special to me and the music video just came out so you should definitely check that out too!

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?

Only in the last few years have I really gotten to experience the music scene here in Canada and it is thriving. Some of my favorite Canadian artists include The Elwins, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Dan Mangan, Tim Baker, Kasador, Bedhead, Oakridge Ave and so many more!
