Joseph Miller - I hope you know

I had the distinct pleasure of being in a very small audience a few weeks ago that enjoyed a performance from Joseph Miller.
While there are so many very talented solo artists earning their stripes in the bars and clubs there is also an element of them all morphing towards delivering a sound that defines them as a group rather than an individual.
So it was refreshing to hear a young man slightly veer away from the folk leaning of his peers and shade his songs with a bit of a country sound.
It's not the country imagery of a Johnny Cash though, but something more modern and partially rooted in the current crop of female artists that dominate the US scene.
It may sound like a strange mix, but live it makes complete sense as Joseph has an asexual tone to his voice that allows him to explore this route, and he does it with a great deal of aplomb.
So it was very nice to get a timely reminder of how much I had enjoyed his set with his video being released today on Youtube.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
