“Joe McCorriston is a folk/punk influenced pop Singer-Songwriter from Morecambe, Lancashire, UK. He already has 3 albums to his name as well as many compilations and EP's. 2011’s EP “One Day” and 2012’s LP “Try As You Might”, 2014's "Sick & Sand" are releases that symbolize Joe’s formative years, all released as a teenager. The latest album "The Party We Came For", was released on 16th December 2016, receiving many positive media reviews and the album launch show sold out weeks in advance. Joe continued to tour “The Party We Came For” through 145 shows in 11 different countries throughout 2017.

His musical influences range from Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan & Bruce Springsteen, to NOFX, Green Day & McFly, and these influences have been honed through Joe’s creative machine to make a sound unique enough to stand out, but catchy enough to leave you with the melodies in your head after one listen. Joe is a workaholic, and is on tour more than he is at home, as he gigs endlessly around the UK & Europe building a following one-by-one.

New EP “Existence. Familiarity” was released on 25th January 2018 to coincide with the start of another year of graft & touring. Joe toured the UK with Coffee House Sessions in January, before heading to Scandinavia for a tour throughout February. In March, he will endure a 3 week tour of Germany, before coming home in April for another full UK tour, covering every inch of the country.

Joe has played 650 shows as of December 2017, and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Despite just being armed with an acoustic guitar, his live show is full of energy, passion and creativity to make you turn your head.”


Welcome!

In 2002 West End Impact started its journey of Helping People, Bringing Hope and Changing Lives!! We opened in response to the regeneration of Morecambe which was a government focus at that time; Regeneration starts with people and although the new prom in Morecambe is amazing there are still lots of people in great need and lots to be done.
We opened our doors to everyone and our services have been tailored to the needs of the Community. There are now 12 different projects or sessions running from our multi purpose building!!

At West End Impact we support people through crisis, help them repair reasons for their crisis and assist them in moving on. We work with people who are homeless, jobless and hopeless – people who have lost their home, their job and/or hope.
As a Christian Charity we believe God’s love for people is all inclusive, relevant for the whole human being.
For some the Good News of Jesus is a challenging word in season or a great sermon; for others it is a hot bowl of soup, housing advice and a dry sleeping bag.
We are thankful that God has us spread his love in both ways.
Often people take 3 steps forwards, 5 backwards and 8 sideways but we pray they find new hope in themselves, through us and in God.
