"Not only can he sing and play guitar but he writes songs as well"
by Paul Wise, Writer & EditorLots of local young talent appeared in the Zanzibar tonight, some with real good sounds. But I am here to review an up and coming singer/song writer/actor called Joe Maddocks.
Joe Maddocks is a talented young individual, not only can he sing and play guitar but he writes songs as well. He is also playing a lead role in a feature film, not bad for a young man of fourteen years.
He took to the stage in the Zanzibar with acoustic guitar in hand and launched into Fast Car a Tracy Chapman song.
Then he sang a song that he penned himself last summer, called Goodbye; brilliant, this lad is only fourteen!!
Two more songs followed; A-team an Ed Sheeran number that Joe has made his own.
The crowd cheered and applauded Joe's performance, he then finished the set with another Ed Sheeran song, You Need Me, I Don't Need You. At the end of his performance he left the stage to rapturous applause while the audience cheered for more.
Joe Maddocks is going to be a name you will hear again. For someone of such a young age to have so much talent surely augurs well for the future.
