2014 – present (5 years)
Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon, United States
There are more than one bands called Joseph.
1. Joseph is an American folk/rock band from Portland, Oregon. The band is made up of three sisters, Natalie Allison and Meegan Closner. The sisters took their name from a small town in their home state and in homage to their Grandfather. Their debut album, Native Dreamer Kin was released in 2014 and two years later came the 2nd album I'm Alone, No You're Not" featuring a mixture of folk and rock but all the while highlighting their mesmerizing vocal abilities and harmonies especially on such tracks as Canyon, White Flag and the beautiful SOS. In 2017 they issued a version of the Mamas & The Papas classic "California Dreamin' and later that year their EP "Stay Awake" which features their own version of "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
2. Joseph from York bring a stripped down, dirty sounding hardcore, ditching technical riffing for a more straightforward groove not unlike bands like Kyuss or even Led Zeppelin. ferocious live shows combined with heavy-as-fuck riffs appeal to metal fans tired of tight-jean poesy-core. Sexy hardcore for bearded men and women.
‘I don't think there is a British band to match them.’
-Tom Lacey Tips for 2008 Rocksound.
3. Classic Stoner (heavy fuzz) blues rock! The 'Joseph' was in fact Joseph Long or Joseph Longeria, discovered by the album's producer and A & R man Steve Tyrell playing in Houston in a battle of the blues competition. This is the only known foray into recording that Longeria made and he was a superb guitar player to boot.
Stoned Age Man contains some of weirdest lyrics ever written. Check out 'I Ain't Fattenin' No More Frogs for Snakes' and the eastern 'Cold Biscuits and Fish Heads.'
