Joseph Mammarella

Joseph was born in Ontario, Canada, and grew up just outside of Portland, Oregon. The son of a classical pianist, he was introduced to music at a young age and quickly took to the guitar. In high school, Joseph signed up for every music class he could, and decided to continue his education at Portland State University.

At PSU, Joseph studied under jazz greats George Colligan and Darrell Grant, and in 2019 he earned a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. Joseph honed his unique & eclectic sound while playing as a sideman in groups from all different genres.

Joseph's music is heavily influenced by fusion greats like the Tony Williams Lifetime, Chick Corea, and Steps Ahead. He pays homage to the past legends while creating music for the future with captivating grooves and powerful solos.
