Joe Tallarigo~The Cincinnati Kid 


Welcome to my website!!!

2019 is the twentieth anniversary of when I first discovered country music, and over the last twenty years my poems have been heavily influenced by country singers and songwriters.  To celebrate I am releasing my new book "Keep the Music Playing"  on March 1, 2019.  The theme of the book is chasing your dreams and celebrating life. It will be released through Twin Hills Publishing LLC.  
For booking and signing events, or want me to talk about poetry to your classes: please contact me at: [email protected]
Thanks Mr. Hunt principal of Oak Hills High School for allowing my book to be in the Oak Hills Library.  Oak Hills was where I went to high school and where I began writing my poetry in October of 2001. I wrote 40 poems by the time I graduated in 2003. 

My childhood house in Price Hill.  This house held many family parties, friends were welcome, and I spent many days on the hill watching the storms move in from the West.  It was tore down in 2014 for the new Boys and Girls Club and dedicated during the Major League All-Star game in July 2015.

 My official book signing at Jim and Jacks in May of 2012.

Thanks for coming to the spring 2016 Oak Hills Craft fair. I will be back on November 19, 2016 to sell my books. Hope to see you there. 

My dream came true when the Country Music Hall of Fame Bookstore in Nashville Tennessee bought copies of my first book 'The First Quarter"~A Songwriters Dream.
