Originally from Atlanta Georgia, Joe Riedel's musical influences accumulated from many directions. His parents were both classical musicians, and from a young age he dove into many forms of music playing piano, guitar, and singing. Moving west to attend CU Boulder, Joe managed the a cappella group the CU Buffoons and formed an original funk rock band Dogs Got Flavor. He performs with bands and solo; DJs events; is represented by Eden Talent Agency; and teaches voice, guitar, and piano in Denver. Currently he works with Elite Entertainment and has performed with original bands and entertainment companies such as Moments Notice, Hipster Mama Productions, Kory Brunson Band, Funkiphino, Emma Mays and the Hip, and theMOVED. Today he pursues songwriting and production with other writers, producers, and artists for original projects and his own pop/r&b project.
