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 new single, "The Closer I Get To You", at Hands In Motion Music Production studio with producer Lannie Battistini, an award-winning artist and keyboardist. The next single is set to be released i late fall of 2020- stay tuned! NY Joe's first single, “One More Chance,” was released in September 2017. 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.
When he’s not recording, he’s on stage entertaining crowds with his sound, style, and charisma. However, with the current pandemic, he has taken to online performances, interviews, and more that you can keep up with via 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."
