Ever since he was a young boy, Joe Bova has been performing in front of audiences of all size. Surprisingly, Joe has never taken a voice or guitar lesson, he is completely self taught. Joe’s family was never musically inclined and it was not until the 6th grade that Joe Bova’s vocal talents were discovered. Joe’s father asked him to sing the Star Spangled Banner at a major basketball tournament that he was managing; from then on the rest is as they say “history”. Since that time, Joe has performed the National Anthem at Progressive Field for the Cleveland Indians, while also performing for various events and genres.
After high school Joe attended Notre Dame College, where he not only sang in the choir, but played baseball for the Falcons as well. Though the baseball experience was short lived, he did not come out empty handed. Through baseball Joe met and became good friends with Morgan Woods. Often times Joe and Morgan would find themselves singing and sometimes arguing about country music.
Joe Bova Music was created on February 1, 2012 when Joe and Morgan began to collaborate on a song that Morgan had been working on for some time. After 6 hours and a 12 pack of Yuengling, “Carryin’ Me Away” had been born and released to the public on YouTube, at 4:00 in the morning. Little did they know, that not only had they written their first song “Carryin’ Me Away”, but Joe Bova Music had been launched into overdrive. Since that time Joe & Morgan have written multiple other songs including “We Got History” and “Bleeding Red, White, & Blue”. After making it through the first of tryouts for The Voice and later being sent home, Joe Bova has made it his primary focus to prove them wrong.
In February of 2013, Joe Bova Music expanded the already blossoming project to accompany Adam and Aaron Boey into the group as lead and rhythm guitarists. Both Adam and Aaron are proud veterans of The United States Army, with Aaron having served in Afghanistan and Adam in Iraq.
After having become fast friends with the Boey brothers, the decision was made to change the name of the band to as it stands now, Wild Fire. Rightfully suiting the determined and aggressive personality of all the members.
Since that time, Wild Fire has played at Put-In-Bay, OH, Kent ‘Round Town Music Festival as well as Bar 145 in Kent. The Public House and Lake City Tavern, where they opened up for Nashville’s own Gary Ray, are among their favorite and most frequent places to light up stage.
Their future is unwritten, their loyal fans can be the ones responsible for their success. Fuel the fire and support them, follow them, listen to Joe Bova and watch this talented group live their dreams.
