ABOUT NY JOE
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 recorded his music at Hands In Motion Music Production studio with Latin Grammy® award-winning Producer, Lannie Battistini, an award-winning artist and keyboardist. NY Joe’s very first release, salsa-hit-single, “One More Chance,” was released in September 2017, an original song written by NY Joe himself. After that, his debut album, For The Love, was released Oct. 25, 2019. It consists of 10 songs, both originals and covers with typical New York style Salsa arrangements written by Battistini. Songs are sung in both English and in Spanish. His newest single, "The Closer I Get To You,” is due to be released in 2021 (release date TBA)! The single will be a salsa remake of the classic soul hit song.
When he’s not recording, he’s on stage entertaining crowds with his sound, style, and charisma. During the 2020 COVID-19 season, he took to online performances, interviews, through his social media and youtube. Staying active in the limelight was important to him especially to keep his fans entertained.
Going forward into 2021 and 2022, NYJoe will be releasing several other single hits both original and covers to be announced through his social media.
"My goal with my music is just to make
people happy and feel better about all the incredible things this life has to offer."
