About Sticky Joe
Sticky Joe was born in Southend-on-sea, Essex in the late 1980’s. Raised with a heavy personal influence from Ocean Colour Scene and Echo Base drummer/singer Oscar Harrison, Sticky began playing drums at the age of 9 years old. At the age of 15 Sticky began to promote and organise his own nights across Essex and London.
After years of development on the London scene as a drummer playing in venues such as The Garage, The St Moritz Club and Brixton Jamm, Sticky Joe turned his attentions to playing 5-string American Banjo in 2006. This led to a short career in the southern English folk scene, until 2008 when Sticky began a career as a music producer/sound engineer.
After gaining a degree in Sound Engineering and Production in Birmingham, UK he began to develop his production skills by working for Smoke House productions, Limehouse London. During this period Sticky Joe was lucky enough to work with artists such as Peter Hook (Joy Division/New Order), Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones) and Henri Padovani (The Police). After developing his production craft on a custom 64-channel Neve desk and 2 inch reel-to-reel tape he set out on his own to become a reggae/dnb/hiphop producer and make his name.
Currently Sticky Joe is based in Birmingham UK and works with artists such as Juggla (Overproof Sound System), Pablo Rider (UB40), Mish Mayb (Alternative Dubstep Orchestra), Cheshire Cat (Leftfield), Lionart (Friendly Fire), Prince Jamo and Lutan Fyah producing some the UKs freshest original cuts.
