Joe Waters

This is Joe H2O 

Joe Waters is a multitalented musician out of Dayton Ohio who plays Blues, Funk, Folk, and Americana music. Joe is a singer and a songwriter. He writes original music and he also pays homage to original blues artist by singing old blues standards and deep cuts.

His love for playing music started when he was 5 years old after his parents bought him a harmonica from the Cracker Barrel gift shop. Joe dedicated himself to learning not only the harmonica but the guitar, drums, jaw-harp and vocals as well. 


This talented and skilled young man has poured his heart and soul into his music for the past 20+ years, and he has received well-deserved acknowledgment for his hard work and dedication.  He has taken first place in two major Blues Music Contests:

Joe Waters won 1st place in the 2024 International Blues Challenge held in Memphis Tennessee.  

He also won 1st place in the 2022 Telluride Blues Challange held in Telluride Colorado. 


When you hear Joe perform, it’s no surprise that he has earned both of those first place titles.  His love and passion for music flows from him when he performs.  

He is currently creating music for his next album, which will be his second album as an Independent Artist. 

His previous album “In The Hot Seat” was recorded by his friend and fellow musician, Anthony ‘Saxtone’ Arrington.  


Joe’s father, Jack Waters, has been a musician for 35+ years and Joe expresses his gratitude for his father starting him in his music career. As a duo, Jack and Joe have performed together for 20 years with 4 albums recorded, they have placed 1st in three local Ohio blues contest, and they were semi-finalist in the International Blues Contest.


Joe is continually deepening his connection to music and allowing music to flow through him.  He knows music has the power to heal the heart and unite the people, and he hopes to keep creating songs that do just that.
