Biography

Joey Only is a Canadian singer/songwriter of the anti-folk genre. His songs tend to be often either very political in nature (especially in reference to B.C. and Ontario provincial politics) or about drinking, robbing banks, small town history, marijuana and country living.

Joey traditionally performs using a guitar, harmonica, whistling, and foot-stomping (which he often prefers to mic.) His solo act was furious and edgy enough to catch a loud bars attention. But more and more often he is to be found playing in a full band.

Having come from a small-town background of punk rock, his music is in line with anarchism and his fan base tends to be either anarcho-punks, hippies, protesters and peace advocates (although he has a number of listeners in the country music crowd as well), taking influence from Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, and Johnny Cash among others. Joey has performed with many of the artists from Riot Folk including Evan Greer, and Anne Feeney as well as various other well-known folk and anti-folk acts from around Canada and the U.S.A. and has recently (Summer ‘06) been playing with a band called The Joey Only Outlaw Band.

Joey Only is also known for playing at punk rock and heavy metal shows, and has played with numerous famous underground bands including Mass Grave, Mechanical Separation, Leper, The Business Associates, Poseur Disposer, The Switchblade Valentines, The McGillicudy’s, Meat of Mankind, Mitochondrion, BUNCHOFUCKINGOOFS, Knifehammer, The Tups, HippieCritz, Subhumans, the Ripcordz and many others.
