Joseph "Joe" Egan (born 18 October 1949) is a Scottish singer-songwriter. Egan was born in Paisley, Scotland, in 1949. Egan, together with former St Mirin's Academy schoolmate Gerry Rafferty, played in various smaller British bands, such as The Sensors and The Mavericks, and worked as a session musician. Egan eventually recorded his solo debut album Out of Nowhere, but this did not occur until 1979 as he and Rafferty were contractually obliged not to release any recordings for three years, when he registered a minor hit with his first single release "Back on the Road". That same year he released a second single titled "Out Of Nowhere". 1981 saw the release of his second album, Map, which was not a critical or commercial success, and subsequently no singles were released in support of it. Since then he has not released any new recordings and has left the music industry, though he did briefly reunite with Rafferty to perform vocals on some tracks on the latter's 1992 album On a Wing and a Prayer. Also Joe Egan worked at the cinema when he was a young boy, he was 14 when he worked there and one time out of nowhere he burnt the cinema down that's how he got the idea of the song "Out Of Nowhere" in 1979.
