Since moving to Denver in 2000, Joe Sampson has been a highly visible member of the scene, but it's always been either as member of bands like A Dog Paloma or Bad Weather California, or collaborating on projects like Wentworth-Kersey or playing rare solo shows with friends like Nathaniel Rateliff. All this time, the focus has never truly been on Sampson himself. Just the same, his music has clearly struck a chord with a great many people, and his list of admirers continues to grow.
