About JOE WHEATON - GUITAR
Joseph Wheaton is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter active in the Charleston music scene. Although his musical home is in FolkRock, he has studied and explored all different genres from jazz to hiphop. Joe currently writes songs for his project Pinkerton and the Brinks, which has been nominated "Best Bluegrass Band in Charleston" two years in a row.
Joe picked up guitar around age 12 to occupy his mind. He was an odd, shy kid that mostly kept to himself. Through playing and practicing music he found his voice. It was the perfect outlet and he wants to share that with the next generation.
