Deaf Joe chats to Nessy on The London Ear

I just had to speak to Joe Harney when I heard his new album ‘Kalachuchi’. The layers of instrumentation are just glorious. ‘Kalachuchi’ is the fifth album from the Edinburgh-based Irish man and I would highly recommend you check it out.

I loved chatting with Joe, getting to know him and what makes his creative side tick.

Find out more about Deaf Joe on his Bandcamp, Twitter and Insta. ‘Kalachuchi’ is out now on Bluestack Records.
