Story Behind “We’re On A Float Trip”
I went on a float trip with my buddies and had a blast as usual. On the way home I couldn’t fall asleep so I figured I might as well try to write a song. It practically wrote itself, all I did was explain what we did the day before. It needed very few tweaks or rewrites. I plan on having it demoed in Nashville soon and shooting a really fun video.
With “We’re On A Float Trip,” the current goal is to get people to vote for me to play in an upcoming songwriter showcase.
Some other accolades are recently placing a song in the final 11 of a nationwide song contest put on by CMT called “Next Generation.” The song is a country song about country music. Joe Bizelli currently has two songs on the Nashville based MusicCityTop40.com.

Joe Bizelli Bio
What I’m trying to do: Write a million-dollar country song so I don’t have to have a day job.
About 2 years ago I went to The Bluebird in Nashville and got to see some heavy-hitter songwriters play. These guys all had multiple hits on the radio. They were just normal guys, laughing and making fun of each other while playing their amazing songs. While they played, no one made a sound. They were completely and totally focused on their songs. That day I realized that’s exactly what I want, and I’ll do whatever I have to to make that happen. So I started reading songwriting books, watching songwriter interviews on YouTube, listening to the great songwriters of the past, etc. I also started co-writing with the best writers I could find and dedicated a lot of time to my songs.
Joe Bizelli was born in New Melle, MO. Music was always a part of life. When I was a baby, my mom had a radio playing in my room on low volume 24/7 so music has literally been in my head my whole life. Joe’s been performing for over 10 years. There is no doubt in my mind that this (songwriting) is what I’m supposed to be doing with my life and I’m really proud of what I’ve done so far.
