Giving up his career as a carpenter to pursue music full time four years ago, Joe Pug has followed the path of countless other daring musicians, trying to establish a sustainable livelihood through grass-roots, one-fan-at-a-time efforts. “Unless your surname is Dylan, Waits, Ritter or Prine, you could face-palm yourself to death trying to pen songs half as inspired as the 10 tracks on Joe Pug’s debut full-length” (Paste Magazine). Pug plays Knoxville, Asheville, & Charlotte this week.
