Jose “NY Joe” Narvaez was born in the Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican natives. His social and cultural identity has been pivotal in shaping his music and style.
NY Joe got his start in music at a young age, joining his uncle’s band, Bobby Rodriguez Y La Compañia on tour. As a behind-the-scenes stagehand, Joe would set the stage and prepare the sound for his uncle’s shows. Sometimes, he would get the chance to sing background vocals during performances. Traveling around the world on tour, this exposure fueled his passion for salsa music. This was the inspiration that catapulted him years later as a singer, performer and recording artist.
From his early beginning, Joe has always dreamed of recording original music; a dream that has now become a reality. NY Joe has been recording his new album at Hands In Motion Music Production studio with producer Lannie Battistini, an award-winning artist and keyboardist. NYJoe's first single, “One More Chance,” was released in September 2017. His new album For The Love is due to be released Oct. 25, 2019. It will consist of 10 songs, both originals and covers with typical New York Salsa Style arrangements written by Battistini. Songs will be sung in English and in Spanish.
When he’s not recording, he’s on stage entertaining crowds with his sound, style, and charisma.
"My goal with my music is just to make people happy and feel better about all the incredible things this life has to offer."
