Joey Wit and The Definition
As he sings in his song, Throwing Stones, “...I’m a son to the North and a brother to the South”, Joey Wit’s story is just as unique and original as his sound. As a former professional athlete, it would seem Joe dedicated the majority of his life and childhood to the game of baseball. However, music was just as important as athletics in his upbringing. Growing up in a household with parents whose record collection included everything from Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy and Elvis Presley to Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones, it’s easy to see how the Connecticut native gravitated towards rock and roll. After spending several years in the American Southeast (Durham, NC) working on his musical craft, Wit returned home to New England in 2015 and started recruitment for his rock and roll outfit, now known as The Definition (Clay Selmont-Guitar, Guido Falivene-Bass, Nate Manware-Drums, Nathanael Oakes-Keys). Drawing on inspiration from countless sources such as the Beatles, Radiohead, Wilco, Doves and Ryan Adams; Joey Wit and The Definition offer an innovative and energetic approach to rock and roll with a little something every music fan can appreciate.
