As the drummer and musical director for Ellie Goulding (2009-2020), Joe forged a path in the deployment of performance technology at an arena level show, and pioneered the use of software in on-stage systems. With Ellie, Joe performed over two thousand shows, appeared on every major TV and radio show in the world, working with Ellie from her first club show in 2009 to world arena tours in 2016. Joe played on three of Ellie’s studio albums, alongside a number of live releases.

Joe co-authored with Roland the 2023 Hybrid Drums degree module at the Academy of Contemporary Music, leading to the creation of a live music industry education platform called ‘Learn Live Music.’
