Born with an innate love for music, Joseph gravitated to any object in the house that he could use to create rhythms and sounds. Having quickly recognized his zeal and ability to learn music, Joseph’s parents purchased his first drum set at age four. By the time he was fourteen, the Dallas native had developed the skill to play multiple instruments, such as the lead guitar, piano, organ, and his most adored instrument, the bass guitar. Joseph’s love and mastery of the bass guitar has created opportunities for him to play along side some of the nation’s finest musical talent, such as national recording artists, Nancy Wilson, Freddie Jones, the Hensley Ensemble, Althea Rene and Tom Braxton. Impressively, Joseph has been Tom Braxton’s bass player for nearly five years, giving him the chance to become a polished, highly respected, professional musician.
After years of accompanying other artists, Joseph finally responded to the urging of others to embark upon the courageous journey to produce his first solo project. This song-writer, arranger, and vocalist’s insatiable obsession for jazz, gospel, r&b, country, and the blues prompted him to produce a project that would be a soulful fusion of multiple genres, tones, sounds, and rhythms that painted a hypnotic canvas of unforgettable grooves. Fans of Joseph and lovers of all styles of music will be glad to know that the project, which is entitled Dancing in the Window, has been released. Check out Itunes, CDBaby or Amazon.com.

People ask me what Nancy looks like all the time. Usually I make sh*t up and hem and haw my way past that question until we start talking about the weather. Well, the truth is Nancy has pink skin, hooves for hands, and big cartoonish eyes. She’s got a tail that wags when she’s happy [...]
