Joe Baxter

A long-suffering, little-known, hometown, pre-Americana, redneck, short-haired, red-faced, irreverent, irresponsible, quirkily well-read, bombastic yet insightful, mouth-breathing, loud-laughing, dog-loving, nap-taking, no-workin', fish-catching, backroad-driving, liberal, Okie songwriter.

October 23rd, 2023 / Update

Guess what? Yep! Your ol' buddy Joe is getting up to speed on his online presence. With MUCH help from daughter Rachel and grandson Ian, I am determined to navigate this site like I know what I'm doing, as well as rafting the treacherous shoals of the streaming sevrices. Ian is going to finish uploading my available catalog, starting with my 2023 release, "Interesting TImes".
Thank you for looking me up, and thanks for supporting my art. jb

What is Barn Music?

The Round Barn Ramblers (featuring Curt on Mandolin and Richard on fiddle) got some spotlight yesterday during an interview with Galen Culver on Newschannel 4 (KFOR - OKC). Joe answered the simple question "What is Barn Music?" for a long-time segment called Is This A Great State or What? Cool drone shots! Great music!The album Old Piano is set to debut on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, and iHeartRadio within the next week! I already know I'm going to have Oklahoma Nocturne on repeat.Woodyfest is coming up! Joe is looking forward to outfitting the concession stand into a cooling station for jamming out of the heat. That will be a much needed relief. Don't miss out on seeing Joe Baxter & The Lost Cause performing on July 14th at the Rocky Road Tavern out in Okemah. Don't forget your festival wristband!Y'all take care and drink lots of water!-RE

Joe Baxter, gives Galen Culver some insight on "barn music - a subgenre of Okie Noir"
