The Joseph Twins
The Joseph Twins have been playing shows together and separately for over a decade in California, Iowa, and Chicago. The pair draws influences from Americana and the post-punk movement, creating a hard and fuzzy tone around rich and familiar melodies. Their lyrics are laden with storytelling that is deeply personal and holds a mirror up to the society they live in, asking questions about the nature of relationships, politics, and the relative nature of good and evil. This is their debut of new and re-worked material through an electric lens.
I started playing in the subway. At one point I was a pro busker. The subway taught me a lot. I spent a night in jail, I was robbed, I got free food & beer, I was interviewed by the papers, I got a few dates, I gave shelter to a man in need & I earned the respect of old time street performers. Mostly it taught me to write & perform a 3 min pop song b/c that's all the time you have between trains
