Joseph Goehle was born in Lockport, NY; a suburb of the city of Buffalo, NY. Joe had been a musical child; often experimenting with the household piano or singing along with the radio at a young age.

He frequently subs with The Easy Street Big Band, based in Buffalo, NY. Currently, Joe studies music (education and jazz studies) at the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam.
