JOSEPH PARSONS is a prolific songwriter, recording artist and performer with over 20 commercial label releases. Both live and with his recordings, Joseph Parsons has always created his own unique sound. He brings a heart and soul to his songs through energy and emotional honesty, ranging from stories of people caught in hard times to uplifting songs of love and life.
Originally from the musical city of Philadelphia, Joseph Parsons has made his name by consistently delivering exceptional song driven albums alongside a rigorous touring schedule throughout Europe and the US, including last year’s successful tours of the UK and Germany with Doghouse Roses, with whom he tours across the UK again this Spring.
Performing as a duo for these shows, Joseph Parsons will be accompanied by the exceptionally talented guitarist, Freddi Lubitz.
Joseph Parson’s albums are always a journey for the listener and his most recent, ‘The Field The Forest’ (Blue Rose Records), is no exception. ‘The Field The Forest’, is a double EP package that focuses on two distinctive writing styles of Joseph Parsons. ‘The Field’ carries a lighter meditation on redemption & relationships. ‘The Forest’ is an adventurous, heavier rock toned EP that delves into topics of mortality, war and love. Presenting his new material as two bite-sized song cycles is a creative way of facing down the contemporary challenge to the album format. Vinyl junkies in particular will recognise the need at the end of side one, to flip over the disc and immerse into side two.
Joseph Parsons plays at The Bridge Inn, Topsham Exeter on Saturday, April 22nd. For more details visit www.exeterphoenix.org.uk
