Joe Cough (Erasmus More) is a Maine-based musician, educator and performer. He is a graduate of the College of the Atlantic and earned his Masters in Music Performance from the University of Maine. Specialized in French chanson, he also plays/teaches piano, guitar and music tech.
A passionate composer and songwriter, he recently released an album titled 8-bit Arias inspired by his love of classical vocals and 80s and 90s game music.
