Joe Cerisano
Joe Cerisano's Carbon Copy: “A strong moral fiber weaves its way throughout the album. Cerisano sings songs of the hard-working, truth-seeking, man and woman with fire of a Baptist preacher. "
—  Neil Fagan, Performing Songwriter Magazine

Through 30 years Joe developed a singing style that absorbed and combined a wide variety of influences, then mixed them all with his native West Virginia dialect. The resulting combination makes for a classic and original American singers voice. Traveling to the west coast in the early 80s, Joe formed the now legendary California rock band Silver Condor with guitarist Earl Slick (i.e. David Bowie and John Lennon) on Columbia Records. In 1981 Silver Condor had the Top 40 hit "You Could Take My Heart Away." In the mid eighties Joe began his career as one of the most successful studio session singers in America.
