Joe Maphis a fait ses débuts en duo avec sa femme Rose (née Rose Lee Schetrompf, le 29/12/1922 à Baltimore (Maryland),  à la fin des années quarante. Multi-instrumentiste super doué, il joua avec Larry Collins, Ricky Nelson, Tex Ritter et Wanda Jackson. Joe enregistra en solo chez Columbia Records et fut le pionnier de la guitare à double manche. Il était un chanteur régulier au Town Hall Party (KTTV, Compton, Californie). Joe Maphis décédé le 27 Juin 1986. Rose Lee est décédée le 26 Octobre 2021.

Joe and Rose Maphis were a popular husband-and-wife act in the late '40s and early '50s, singing traditional material backed by the amazing instrumental talent of Joe, who played everything with strings on it, especially the twin-neck guitar. The honky tonk anthem "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (And Loud, Loud Music)" was their big hit. Until his death in 1986, Joe was a sessions instrumentalist, backing such stars as Larry Collins, Ricky Nelson, Tex Ritter, and Wanda Jackson.
