...They stop and start their songs using the telepathy of familiar bandmates, infusing the material with dynamics that let the music go from a roar to a whisper of fingerpicking from one beat to the next.” - The New Haven Independent

An Introduction

Joey Wit’s journey has been one of unrivaled adventure. After a tragic injury derailed his professional baseball career, Joey turned his focus to his greatest passion; music. Drawing on influences from classic rock ‘n’ roll to modern alternative, Wit’s songwriting skills are steeped in story with timeless stops and lyrical journey. For the American singer/songwriter there is no greater thrill than performing his songs to a live audience. Highlighting 2022 was Wit's April tour of the United Kingdom. He and the Definition's lead guitarist Clay Selmont made stops in some of England's most historic music cities before returning home to the United States to join the other members of the Definition for a northeast US swing. Wit will be returning to the UK in the Spring of 2023 with stops in Wales, Scotland and England before returning back to the USA to prepare for the follow up release to 2020's debut LP "Eastern Standard". The sophomore LP, “Rose Gold”, is scheduled for a Spring '23 release, featuring the first single "Leave It to Me" with contributions from Matt Starr (drums-Ace Frehley/Mr.Big) and 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts) on lead guitar.
