Living her life between Japan and England, she is constantly touring,
constantly writing, skipping from one fleetingly romantic show to another- whether it be a church in England, a gallery in Japan or atop a mountain in Switzerland. Her recordings are often born from late nights at home plugged into her 4-track. When she's not playing, she's sewing album sleeves and record bags. A true DIY artist in every sense of the word. Her time in Japan has had a great impact on her sound, and this influence is most apparent in the songs
on her recent album Bite The Mountain.
Formally signed to seminal record label Output Recording. Output released one 7inch single and a mini album called "Take it outside" before the label went bust in 2006. How to Cure Dyslexia then decided to record their first album as an art installation in a gallery in King Cross. The critically acclaimed album "The tempo of bicycles and boats" was self released in 2007. The 2nd album "Cowboy and Church" was recorded in more of a conventional way, A studio in Wiltshire and a kitchen in London. "Cowboy and Church" was self released in 2008.
Songstress Josephine Lloyd has been writing and recording her beautifully crafted songs since her teens, when she found a broken recording machine and a karaoke microphone...
Her lyrics are engaging and personal, and she accompanies her haunting, spellbinding vocals with an unusual array of instruments and sounds, spanning numerous genres and creating a unique sound world for each song.
Her live shows leave you mesmerized, with her and her multi-instrumentalist band playing anything from African harp, to violin, to DIY music box, with lush 4 part harmonies and high-energy, heart-wrenching performances. It is no wonder that she has recently played to an awestruck audience, filled to bursting at The Union Chapel.
Josephine is near completion of an eagerly awaited new album, rumored to be released in 2012, and with an ever-growing buzz around this girl’s' music, it is set to be an intriguing listen...
