Joseph Arthur has made his reputation as a first-class singer/songwriter and a unique performer, one who, through experimenting with tape loops and distortion, is a veritable one-man band. Discovered by Peter Gabriel, who released Joseph’s 1997 debut Big City Secrets on his Real World label, the Ohio-raised, NYC-based artist has released several critically acclaimed albums, including Come to Where I’m From, Redemption’s Son, and Our Shadows Will Remain. The records combine Joseph’s classic songwriting skills with ambitious, ear-catching production. He has toured with Ben Harper, Gomez, and Tracy Chapman. Michael Stipe (REM) and Chris Martin (Coldplay) recorded his song “In the Sun” for the Hurricane Katrina Relief program. Joseph Arthur’s music has appeared on TV series The O.C., Dawson’s Creek, Scrubs, and The L Word, and in movies such as The Bourne Identity and Shrek 2.

In the fall of last year, Joseph released Nuclear Daydream, one of his most praised releases yet (“A mature effort that shines with nakedness and clarity,” said Billboard). To coincide with his brand new release, Let’s Just Be, Joseph is embarking on a six-week tour.
