Discovered and signed by Peter Gabriel in the mid-’90s, singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur has been a musician for over 15 years and has eight albums to his name. Arthur, who is originally from Akron, OH, is known for his poetic and melancholic songs. Whether done acoustically or with full, layered orchestration, his music feels intimate and poignant, as though it’s full of painful secrets. Also a distinguished painter and designer, his sleeve design for his 1999 Vacancy album was Grammy-nominated for Best Recording Package.
Joseph Arthur’s latest album, The Graduation Ceremony, is available via his label Lonely Astronaut Records.
Upcoming tour dates:
1/1/2012 @ City Winery in New York, NY
1/13-1/15/2012 @ 30 A Songwriters Festival in Northwest Florida
