Joseph Arthur

Joseph Arthur is an American singer/songwriter from Ohio. This hugely popular artist is known for his "poetic lyrics with a layered sonic palette."

I first came across Joseph Arthur when his song Honey and the Moon was featured in an episode of The OC many years ago. As an artist who is known for his constant touring, Joseph Arthur has written an impressive collection of singles. To date he has released 11 EPs and nine studio albums, the most recent being the double album "Redemption City." One of his singles - In the Sun - has been remixed by Justin Timberlake, and covered by Michael Stipe and Chris Martin.

Joseph has a raw yet soothing voice that compliments his poetic lyrics perfectly. Not one to strum his guitar and sing about the heartbreak of love, Joseph Arthur creates music that covers everything. In addition to this, Joseph Arthur is not afraid to mix it up - experimenting soft melodies, with alternative beats/ electronics.

In terms of live reviews, Joseph Arthur rarely receives criticism. An exceptional artist who rarely sings a wrong note, Joseph Arthur always seems to leave his crowds feeling deeply satisfied.

Similar artists to Joseph Arthur include: Joe Purdy, Pete Yorn, Alexi Murdoch and Matthew Ryan.
