Joseph Kick Off Second Leg of US Tour TodayTrio Sessions Vol. 1 & VEVO DSCVR Sessions Out Now
(New York, NY): Today, pop-rock sister trio Joseph kick off their 20+ date tour with a show in Fort Collins where they'll put their "signature blissful harmonies" (American Songwriter) on display. This is the second leg of their US tour in support of their acclaimed new album, 'Good Luck, Kid” (ATO Records), and the run sees the commendable sister act playing cities they didn’t hit on their last run — in Atlanta, Indianapolis, Tacoma, Bend, Salt Lake City and more. Joseph's live performance is quite a treat. NPR Music says Joseph "blend their voices in the eerily close way that only siblings seem able to accomplish" while Paste can't get enough of the trio's "wonderfully eccentric sounds." Full tour routing below.
Watch Joseph perform live on Jools Holland’s Holiday Hootenanny:
The sisters who "use harmony like an emotional conveyor belt" (Paste) recently released their breathtaking live versions of "Shivers" and "NYE" via VEVO DSCVR. The cuts feature the girls in a single room, sharing a microphone and showcase the "perfectly melodic harmonies" (Consequence Of Sound) that put them on the map in the first place. The two chilled out tracks demonstrate the intimacy of the siblings' heart-stopping live performance.

Additionally, Joseph recently released "Trio Sessions Vol. 1" - a record of stripped-back reinventions of favorites from their album 'Good Luck, Kid.' The EP includes previously released acoustic tracks "Without You" and "NYE," along with lead singles "Fighter," "Good Luck, Kid," and "Green Eyes."

Choosing their name in deference to their grandfather Jo, and the tiny Oregon town of Joseph where he lived, Natalie Schepman and her two twin sisters Allison and Meegan Closner, grew up in a musical household (their dad was a jazz singer and drummer, their mom a theater teacher), but didn’t sing together until just a few years ago. Joseph officially formed in 2014 when Natalie, an aspiring performer looking for a creative jolt, asked her sisters to form a band together.
They quickly discovered their gift for songwriting and vocal alchemy and began cultivating a devoted fan base playing secret house party gigs before signing with ATO Records. Since then, Joseph has been named a 2016 Spotify Spotlight artist, toured with James Bay and Amos Lee, performed on Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show, CBS This Morning Saturday, "Later" with Jools Holland and prestigious festival stages like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Outside Lands.
