JOSEPH ARTHUR has never paid much attention to musical trends. He doesn't write catchy jingles. What he does do is create some of the most powerful, haunting songs you’ll ever hear. It’s fair to toss his name in with the canon of iconoclasts that include Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Jeff Buckley, and Peter Gabriel who personally signed Joseph to his Real World label in the ‘90s. His Grammy-nominated career has spanned nine full-length albums and 11 EPs. His latest is The Ballad of Boogie Christ, described by Arthur as “a fictionalized character loosely based on my own journey.”
ONLY CHILD, the solo project of Jenna Rogers, will open the night.
