Joe Gore is . . .

. . . all over the frickin’ map.

I’m a San Francisco-based guitarist, music journalist, composer, and sound designer.

I’ve recored with Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Tracy Chapman, the Eels, Courtney Love, DJ Shadow, Flea, Les Claypool, Aimee Mann, John Cale, Jill Sobule, and many other artists. My playing and compositions also appear in many films and TV shows, plus an incriminating number of jingles.

I’ve written several thousand published articles about music and musicians and am the former Senior Editor of Guitar Player magazine. I’m also the co-creator (with Elise Malmberg) of, an internationally acclaimed internet hoax. The site alleges to be a 50-year history of a struggling indie label, but everything—music, articles, photos, interviews—is fake, fake, fake,

I’ve worked as a consultant for numerous audio companies, including Avid, Yamaha, Native Instruments, FXpansion, and most recently, Apple, where I am a major independent developer for the Logic and GarageBand platforms.
