Joey Chang aka Cello Joe is an anomaly in the world of cellists.

Cello Joe plays the cello while beatboxing, looping, and singing. It’s Classical Hip Hop. He creates fat beats with a cello and his mouth and he does it live! His lyrics weave together sustainability, environmental justice, and social awareness. They entertain, inspire, and make you wonder.

By beatboxing, throatsinging, singing, plucking and bowing the cello, Cello Joe can mimic many styles of music from dubstep to folk to rock to classical to hip hop. CelloJoe is the world’s first long distance musical bike touring cellist. He has ridden his bike over 10,000 miles in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia.

Cello Joe has collaborated, performed with, and opened for high caliber artists in folk and electronic music including Rising Appalachia, Random Rab, Dirtwire, Joan Baez, Nicoluminous, Mr Rogers, Pega5u5, Frameworks, Jamie Janover, Bryonn Bain, Sam Bass (cellist with Les Claypool) and many more.
