Flat Head Ford

Joe Asselin

Flat Head Ford introduces a unique style of Country/Blues reminiscent of, JJ Cale, John Prine and Jerry Reed; mixed with authentic Chicago Blues.

Joe Asselin has been performing and recording professionally for over 15 years. Throughout his career he has worked with numerous artists specifically within the Blues community. Notarized for his impressive Harmonica work on The Kilborn Alley Blues Bands albums and his genuine approach to his work with The Sugar Prophets, has helped Joe find his own creative sound. Reminiscent of classic Country and Blues, with a twist of Rock A Billy, Asselin has found where he feels most comfortable. Joe released his solo acoustic album "Blue Genes" in 2016 and is now following up with his electric setup for the release of "Flat Head Ford." The band recorded in the studio as a three piece; bass, drums, and guitar, then Asselin returned to overdub the guitar parts, harmonica, lap steel and vocals. This album was recorded at studio 401 in Georgetown IL in May of 2018.

Blue Genes

Joe Asselin

Each song on "Blue Genes" tells stories with a solid Americana heritage.

"Joe Asselin is a multi-instrumental talent who plays it from the gut and writes from the hear" - Nick Moss: The Nick Moss Band

Originally from York Beach Maine and now a Champaign IL resident, Joe Asselin has performed within a traditional blues background for years. Reaching international notice as the Harmonica Player for "The Kilborn Alley Blues Band" and national status as the lead guitarist for "The Sugar Prophets;" Joe has incorporated all his backgrounds into this album. His love for the song writers of the past and the story telling of those artists finally has reached the plateau to be released. Each song holds its story based off of real life events during Joe's growth in Champaign IL. Joe makes the majority of his living providing landscape and lawncare services in the local area running a small company called "Ask Joe To Mow."
