The album "Jamie Was A Boozer" was rated a Four Star Album by the Austin Chronicle and one of the Top Texas Albums of the Year. In 2001, Joe moved back to his home town of Santa Fe where he quickly became a local mainstay, playing weekly at the infamous Cowgirl Hall of Fame. While playing in Santa Fe, Joe caught the attention of Frogville Records, who signed him to their label and supported the recording of SOUTH DAKOTA HAIRDO, a CD which earned much praise and in 2004 was honored as one of the best albums of the year by The New Mexico Music Industry Awards Joe now leads The Joe West Trio, a national touring band which features ex-Mary and Mars member Ben Wright on lead guitar and a handsome young man named Noah Baumeister on upright bass. Together with the bubble machine, the witty original songs and the standard country classics, The Joe West Trio is guaranteed to be one of the "good time bands" of all time. As a side project, Joe has created The Intergalactic Honky Tonk Machine which he calls his "solo, time traveling, musical device". With the use of musical "loops" , a small Casio keyboard, acoustic guitar and other electronic items, Joe tells his narrative tales with the hopes of entertaining and transporting listeners along the vast time line of American music.
