Spirits Rising

Joe Reilly, Allison Radell


Joe Reilly is a singer, songwriter, and educator from Ann Arbor who writes songs from his heart. Joe’s 

songs are playful, clever, engaging, joyful, and always have something meaningful to say. The core of his 

message is an invitation to heal our relationships with our selves, with each other, and with the earth. Joe uses 

his music to bring people together and build community across lines of race, class, gender, ethnicity, religion, 

age, and nationality. 

Joe is Italian, Irish, and Native American (Cherokee) and was raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan in a creative 

household by musical parents who encouraged him to find his own voice. Joe loves to inspire others to do the 

same and to water seeds of compassion, joy, wisdom, and peace in our collective consciousness through the 

sharing of his music. 

Joe has recorded seven albums of his music, including two children’s albums of environmental songs, Children 

of the Earth (2007) and Let’s Go Outside (2011). In 2012 Joe recorded an album of traditional and 

contemporary Native American songs with youth from the Dream Seekers youth program at American Indian 

Health and Family Services in Detroit. Joe’s most recent album is Greyhound Bus Tour, released in May 2013 

on the Earthwork Music label.
