Rising singer, songwriter, and guitarist Joe Samba, who has quietly emerged as a phenomenon racking up over 8 million total streams, is heading out on his first-ever U.S. headlining tour this fall, which will stop on Wednesday, December 6 at Madison Live! featuring support from Joey Harkum.

“Embarking on my first-ever headlining tour is exciting to think about,” shares Samba. “Early on, I was performing at local pizza shops and bars envisioning the day I’d get to headline a national tour. Not only is that vision becoming reality, I also get to take some of the most amazing musicians and people along for the ride. I’m very excited to bring this show on the road. It will be a memorable one for all who attend.”

Samba, who finds the sweet spot between smoked-out Caribbean bliss and sweat-soaked punkified energy, has spent years honing his skills and building up his acclaimed energetic live show to get to this point. So far in 2023 alone, the Massachusetts-born and now New Hampshire-based artist has toured extensively from coast to coast supporting Pepper, Badfish: A Tribute To Sublime, and Shwayze, performed at such festivals including Summer Camp Music Festival, Cali Roots Festival, Reggae Rise Up Florida and Maryland, Cali Vibes 2023, and Summer Camp Music Festival, and opened for Sublime With Rome, Andy Frasco & The U.N, and Ziggy Marley, in addition to various headlining shows.
