Joe Purdy

Joe Purdy, a singer/songwriter from Arkansas, put in his time working at a loading dock and as a counselor at a private high school before his song "Wash Away" became synonymous with the 2004 season of ABC's Lost. Purdy left Arkansas for California in 2001, where he learned how to play the piano and began writing songs. He went on to record several homemade albums, breaking into the L.A. music scene with 2003's StompinGrounds. It was around this time that Purdy was contacted by J.J. Abrams, the executive producer of Lost, who asked Purdy to write a song for the show. Purdy, who at the time was visiting an island on a river in upstate New York, wrote "Wash Away," which went on to chart in the Top 25 on the iTunes country charts. The album that featured the song, Julie Blue, was released in 2004. Only Four Seasons followed it up two years later. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi

Come over to Humboldt CA. We will dance we will sing.
This is a very great artist live and almost always picks other good artists to play with! I will always go see Joe within driving distance and only hope to hear more of his good-good string playin and singing soon!
Sounds decent, but I wish I could understand what he's saying. #cottonballs
my favorite singer/songw r i t e r ! !
OK. I reset my parameters and I am giving Joe another listen. I'm liking it, but we'll see if Pandora tries to cram him down my throat every half hour. @ Lauren Barr, I had the aforemention e d overdose on my Josh Ritter station. He just came up on my Mumford station, so we'll see.
I'm in love with you man... totally in love with you.

They play his songs a lot because this is HIS station. Not to mention, he is amazing.
Absolutley love 'Why Do I' - Need to hear more from Mr. Purdy. Soothing, true to life, inspirationa l ....
if you like joe purdy, raise your hand.
How can anyone not like this guy? Incredible song writing range. In a class with Josh Ritter, Alexi Murdoch, et.al. as uber-talente d / under-recogn i z e d . Apparently too good to be covered by mainline media.
if you like joe purdy, check out bob schneider
To prove my point, I posted the previous comment 24 minutes ago. Pandora just played another track by this guy and I'm out of skips. I thought two thumbs downs were supposed to remove someone.
I am really getting sick of this guy. Sorry Ben - I am not really a hater. I liked him well enough. I blame this on Pandora playing one of his songs every thirty minutes. So now I must give him the downthumb whenever I hear him.

Wash Away was used in the Dawn commercial for saving wildlife. He has such a soothing, soft, tranquilizin g voice
One of the best there is.
love this guy
simply beautifully music
also used in another tv commercial.. . c a n t think of which one, but always catches my attention. Not a Lost fan, so glad to fine Joe on Pandora.
Soothing, sexy voice..
Love listening to some Joe Purdy on a nice summers day. Perfect beach music(and no, I'm not just saying that because his song was on Lost).
Recently introduced to Joe Purdy. Love his sound.
Good stuff!
Joe Purdy is the real deal.

He's got soul.
Joe Purdy is great and is from Arkansas which makes even more authentic! This music literally got me up and down Mt. Everest on a recent trip to Nepal.
