A Star In The Making
With a deep, rich voice of pure country, Joe Tinoco
will simply take your breath away.
Im not one to compare one artist to another, but if I had to chose an example, I
would have to say Joe is right up there with Wade Hayes in style, tone, talent and yes,
even demeanor. For all his talent and his obvious appeal to the ladies as a
"hunk", Joe is a humble, down to earth, true gentleman. His smile is infectious
and his sense of humor matches his sense of honor. In a nutshell, Joe Tinoco has
everything it takes to rise to the top of his field!
His fan-released tape, "Country Angel", begins with a beautiful ballad,
"Angel", which Joe wrote for his wife, Tamra. Theres no way I can possibly
describe how Joes heartfelt delivery of this song will sear into your heart and
soul. "Dont You Blame This On Me" is another lovely ballad of
"rainbows turned to dust" as love grows cold. "Lady Liberty" is a
patriotic up-tempo tune of freedom and justice. "Giddy Up Pickup Truck" is a
lively and fun filled, "gotta dance to it" song! "Little Things" takes
a turn that you dont expect as it states, "Though she hasnt said the
words, I love you, its OK, she is mine to hold".....speaking of the
little things she does to hold his love. Toward the end you find out why.... "I know
shes mine, Ill give her time, shes only nine months old." The
ballad, "What Should I Do" is the final song, but in no way the least of them.
While there are only 6 songs on this tape, they are all treasures. How many albums do you
have where you skip songs to get to the good ones? You wont do this on Joes
album. The only letdown will be that there arent more songs.
Joes accomplishments and start in the business are almost as facinating as his
music. At the ripe old age of 27, Joe Tinoco has accomplished more than most can imagine.
Joe began performing in grade school and by the time he was in his junior year at Olathe
North High School, in Olathe, Kansas, he was being booked as a singer, impressionist,
model, actor, television and stage personality. Joe didn't settle for this as having
accomplished enough. He went on to win several major dance contests and still takes first
prize today with his wife, Tamra Holden/Tinoco. Think that's enough? No way! Joe played
the part of a young defendant in the movie Mr. and Mrs. Bridge starring Paul Newman and
Joanne Woodward. Joe said of the movie, "I enjoyed working with Paul Newman. His
first question to me was, 'What is there to do in Kansas City?'" Joe obviously didn't
have a problem finding things to occupy his time! Joe also played a role in Stephan King's
thriller "Sometimes They Come Back" as well as the film, "Kansas
So what about Joe the singer/songwriter? Funny you should ask! Joe went to Branson, Mo.
after winning a talent contest at Tony James' "That's Show Biz Contest". He
spent 4 years in Branson, MO. opening for stars such as Moe Bandy. Joe said he became
convinced that show business was his calling when he was the opening act for Moe Bandy.
From Branson, Joe was called to Nashville, TN. by Opryland to appear in the production,
"Hear America Singing" and also appeared on the "Grand Ole Opry" show.
Since 1988 Joe has opened for Clint Black, Johnny Rodriquez, Lorrie Morgan, Larry Boone,
Ronnie McDowell, Jerry Reed, Freddy Fender, Vern Gosdin, Skip Ewing, Michael Twitty,
Barbara Fairchild, Cristy Lane, Dan Seals, Marty Haggard, Mel McDaniel, Freddy Hart,
Stonewall Jackson, Melba Montgomery, Jeannie Seely, John Conlee, Faron Young, Ferlin
Husky, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Justin Tubb and Marvin
Rainwater....just to mention a few! His favorite opening act was for Ronnie McDowell. Joe
opened several times for Ronnie and Ronnie once told him, "One of these days I'll see
you on the Country Music Academy awards show." Ronnie's well deserved praise served
to motivate Joe even more.
Joe wore many hats in Nashville aside from his stetson. He performed several times at
the Nashville Palace "Where the Stars are Born" in 1992 where he also worked as
a bus-boy. He appeared in IFCO FAN FAIR show cases in '90, '92, "94 and '96 and did a
benefit at the Hall Of Fame In Nashville in 1993.What are Joe's plans for the future? You
name it, Joe's gonna try it and be a success at it! He has recently signed with Disney to
perform on the new Disney Cruise Ship. Tamra is also signed up with Disney and will be
going on the cruise as part of the Disney Show. Tamra has been a backup singer for many
big names in country music and is an exceptional talent in her own right. Joe was also
called upon for a starring role in an up coming movie, "The Sonoran Ghost". The
movie is based on the true story of a legendary Spanish hero.
With all this in store, how will Joe ever find time to make his music? Not to worry.
Anyone who can accomplish all of the above and more in such a short time, will be wowing
his fans with a released recording in no time. Talent and energy like this just can't
