Hailing from Winnipeg, Joe Silva began writing music as a teenager. Combined with his obsession for electronics, he eventually discovered the strange world of synthesizers and it was love at first sight.
Releasing under the name They Never Sleep in 1987, his first EP was in the vein of 'new wave.' It wasn't until a stint of early '90s clubbing in Europe that he cemented his love for house music and he hasn't looked back since. His productions have found their way onto labels like Stickman, Viva!, Guesthouse, and Nordic Trax. He's also stepped into composing roles, scoring seven feature films and dozens of shorts, documentaries, and commercials.
Along with friend and fellow musician Ali Khan, Joe is one half of the production and remix duo Tonepushers.
