About Joe Deninzon

Greetings! My name is Joe and I’m a working violinist/composer/mandolinist/singer/educator/husband & dad based in NY/NJ area.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve been fortunate to work with some legendary artists; Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, The Who, Ritchie Blackmore, Alex Skolnick, Kurt Elling, 50 Cent, Peter Criss, to name just a few. I feel blessed to do what I do as a musician in a supporting role, but for me, there is no greater high than the feeling I get when someone is deeply inspired and affected by music that I create.

I’m involved with numerous creative projects, most important of which is my band, Stratospheerius. This band has released 6 albums, and continues to build an international following. Our last album, “Guilty of Innocence” peaked at number 4 on the National Relix Jamband charts, right above Willie Nelson and David Byrne. The album was also on the top 200 Indy releases in Europe in 2018 and garnered great critical acclaim.

In addition to Stratospheerius, I am a passionate educator and have been working as a traveling clinician and teaching artist for the past 15 years. One of my goal is to be an advocate for the electric violin and open people’s minds about the artistic merits of this instrument, training young string players how to make a career with electric instruments as part of their arsenal.

I also compose music for soloists, string ensembles, orchestras, students, and for my own groups.

As a working musician and a father of two living in a very expensive area, it takes all my time and energy to make ends meet.

In the past, record labels would provide advances to artists that would cover album production and touring expenses.

These days, the business model has changed. While my label is extremely helpful with promotion, I am responsible for paying my expenses.

The exciting thing about this is that I get to involve YOU in my creative process. With your generous support, you get to go on this journey with me and get exclusive gifts as my way of saying “thank you.”

This is why I am inviting you to join my Patreon.

You can choose to contribute as little as $1 per month. Based on what tier you would like to meet, here are some gifts I can share with you!

-Keep you posted on new projects as they develop. Sharing exclusive sketches, early demo versions of songs, rough mixes. You can see the process of creating a song from conception to the Mastering stage.
-Send you exclusive demo material, live recordings, and unreleased music which is NOT available to the public. I have tons of live bootlegs and unreleased material from Stratospheerius, my jazz projects, solo material, and other groups I have been involved with.
-Send signed sheet music
-Five music lessons/music biz consultations if you are a player, or we can just hang out on skype or in person and talk about life!
-Make personalized videos of songs you request
-At the highest tier, play private performances/house concerts. skype concerts.
and more...

Here is what your money will help pay for:
-studio costs
-rehearsal space costs
-mixing and mastering costs
-publicity
-website design and maintenance
-printing merchandise, vinyl, CD’s, t-shirts, posters.
-paying musicians

I am psyched to share my music with you and take you along on my creative journey!
