"THE JIMI HENDRIX 
OF THE ELECTRIC VIOLIN"

Joe Deninzon has been hailed by critics as “The Jimi Hendrix of the Violin,” because of his innovative style on the “Viper” electric sevenstring electric violin. Joe has worked with Sheryl Crow, Bruce Springsteen, Phoebe Snow, Everclear, Ritchie Blackmore, Alex Skolnick, Smokey Robinson, Les Paul, Peter Criss from KISS, Renaissance, and as a soloist with Jazz at Lincoln Center and the New York City Ballet.

Joe is the lead singer and violinist for the progressive rock band, Stratospheerius (www.stratospheerius.com), which has recently released their fifth CD entitled 

GUILTY OF INNOCENCE on Melodic Revolution Records.
"GUILTY OF INNOCENCE is not only great, but one of the most hectic and heart-stopping albums I’ve listened to,” states “Music From the Other Side of the Room”’s  Zachary Nathanson.
“Splashy and theatrical, GUILTY OF INNOCENCE is a howl for justice delivered by virtuosos completely in synch with one another!“ writes “Strings” Magazine, the “Bible” for the String music world.)   

Joe Deninzon can be heard on over a hundred CD’s and jingles as a violinist and string arranger. A BMI Jazz Composer’s Grant recipient and winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, he has written a solo piece for violinist Rachel  Barton Pine, and in 2015, premiered his “Concerto for Electric Violin and Orchestra” with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra.
Joe’s original music has been featured on CMT, MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, National Geographic, the Travel Channel, the History Channel, and the Will Ferrell/ Adam McKay- produced film “Virginity Hit.” He also co-wrote the score for the independent film, “What’s Up Scarlet” (Open City Films).


Joe is also a member of the Sweet Plantain String Quartet www.sweetplantain.com), which combines Latin Jazz with hip-hop and Classical music, and has toured throughout Europe and the U.S. Joe has also released a CD with his Acoustic Jazz Trio, titled “Exuberance.”

As an educator, Joe has taught at Mark O’Connor’s String Camp and Mark Wood’s Rock Orchestra Camp, and makes annual appearances performing at the Grand Canyon Music Festival with renowned harmonica virtuoso Robert Bonfiglio. In 2006, Joe co-founded the Grand Canyon School of Rock, an annual music program for local high school students. He regularly travels as a clinician and has contributed articles to Strings, Downbeat, American String Teachers 
Journal, and Making Music Magazine. In 2012, Joe wrote a book on electric violin techniques for Mel Bay Publications, titled “Plugging In.”

Joe has made the Downbeat Critic’s pole for “rising stars” in jazz/rock violin. Chris Haigh’s book, “Discovering Rock Violin,” lists one of Joe’s recorded solos among the “Top 20 greatest rock violin solos of all time.”
Joe holds Bachelor’s degrees in Violin Performance and Jazz Violin from Indiana University and a Master’s in Jazz/Commercial violin from Manhattan School of Music. www.joedeninzon.
