Album Notes
Joe Reilly is on a musical journey of faith and spirit. His songs touch deep reserves of compassion and joy within the hearts of his listeners, giving encouragement to others on the spiritual path and using music as a universal voice of communication and celebration beyond lines of race, age, ethnicity, and religion.

Greyhound Bus Tour is the result of more than a decade of songwriting, traveling, listening, and seeking, and highlights Joe Reilly’s gift of bringing together diverse and talented artists, ideas, and musical styles into one voice. Combining elements of folk, hip-hop, and traditional Native American singing, Joe shares his true nature through the interconnectedness and synergy that shines through in this musical mosaic.

This album gets its name and title track from Joe’s very first national tour, traveled aboard Greyhound buses in the summer of 2001 from Detroit to New York to Washington DC and on to Atlanta, Texas, San Diego, San Francisco, and British Columbia. Joe carried his guitar and backpack as he traversed the country on the bus, stopping to stay with friends and share his music wherever he could, including street corners, subway stations, parks, in front of the White House, on the shores of both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, in coffee shops, cantinas, and community centers, living rooms, and open mics.

This bold challenge to the universe was met with the loving support and encouragement of friends, family, and strangers, and has since grown into an evolving career that continues to take Joe around the country, sharing his music with a diversity of listeners all along the way.

Come aboard this wonderful journey. No ticket is required, just a willingness to listen with open ears, minds, and hearts. Lay back and let go!

His Music Is A Gift
There are a few musicians that help me be a better person after I listen to their music, and Joe Reilly is one of them. His music is a gift.


A Busload of Music, Spirituality
The album—which combines elements of folk songs, hip-hop, and traditional Native American singing—features several familiar Michigan musicians who are part of the Michigan-based Earthwork music collective. The core of Reilly’s message is an invitation to heal our relationships with our selves, with each other, and with the earth. He uses his music to bring people together and build community across lines of race, class, gender, ethnicity, religion, age and nationality. Of Italian, Irish, and Native American (Cherokee) descent, Reilly—who lives in Ann Arbor now—was raised in Kalamazoo by musical parents who encouraged him to find his own voice.
