Joe & Sheila share a common heritage of Irish & Native American traditions
that comes from the Appalachian region of
Kentucky and West Virginia.
They have used their experiences and their visions in the writing of this profound recording that is attached at the top of this letter.
A perfect blend of Universal and Timeless Americana, Folk, & World music with powerful lyrics and beautiful voices.
With that in mind, we ask you to consider
Joe Kidd & Sheila Burke
Their debut CD release Everybody Has A Purpose
was released in late 2015.
With songs like the highly charged Soldiers In The Army Of Mercy & Peace
which immediately received the Global Music Award for Folk Song Of The Year, and the universally uplifting title track, this record becomes a must for all audiences.
It has been described as sounding more like a career spanning greatest hits album, than a debut CD.
'Soldiers In The Army O Mercy & Peace has been chosen and is receiving airplay and great response in the Holy Land at the borders of conflict between Israel, Palestine, & Lebanon.
Joe & Sheila received back to back Detroit Music Awards for
World Music Songwriters Of The Year.
While onstage at Detroit's 2015 Concert Of Colors
they were presented with a Michigan Governor's Award for
Artistic Excellence and their efforts for Social Justice, Peace, & Cultural Diversity
by State Representative George Darany.
