Joe Cerisano is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer who has the distinction of possessing one of the most familiar voices in America. With musical influences as diverse as Elvis Presley, Little Richard, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Sam and Dave, Joe developed a singing style that absorbed this wide variety of influences, mixing them with his native West Virginia dialect created a classic and original American singer's voice.
 
Traveling to the west coast in the early 80’s Joe formed the now legendary California rock band 'Silver Condor' with guitarist Earl Slick (i.e. David Bowie and John Lennon) on Columbia Records. In 1981, Silver Condor released their debut album and had the Top 40 hit "You Could Take My Heart Away." Silver Condor released their sophomore effort "Trouble at Home" in 1983. It boasted an all-star cast including Neal Schon (Journey, Santana), Clarence Clemmons (E Street Band), Waddy Wachtel (Stevie Nicks), Kenny Aaronson (Derringer, Billy Idol) and Steve Plunket (Autograph).
 
After the breakup of Silver Condor Joe headed back East and began his career as one of the most successful studio session singers in America. Singing television and radio commercials for Chrysler/Plymouth, the Army, the Navy, GE, Miller Beer, Coca-Cola and many others, he voiced classics like the Army's "be all you can be" and GE's "we bring good things to life".
 
He continued to be a sought after singer throughout the 80’s. He performed backing vocals on several albums by Michael Bolton, sang with Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson, was guest as lead vocalist on the Blue Oyster Cult track "Frankenstein" from the ‘Imaginos’ album, sang a duet with Gloria Estefan on the soundtrack Goya: A Life in Song along with Placido Domingo, as well as the feature singer on "Hands Across America".
 
In the early 1990’s Joe began writing a series of songs that reflected the most important thing in Joe's life (his family). This resulting music evolved to become the album Carbon Copy which was recorded in New York, Nashville, and Joe’s home in New Jersey. It also marked Joe’s return to the stage as a member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra during their inaugural trek in 1999 through 2004. He was a featured lead vocalist on the 1998 Christmas album, The Christmas Attic.
 
Joe has continued to be a prolific songwriter and is set to release Joe Cerisano’s Silver Condor - “Studio Cuts, Rarities and Live across America”.
