As a child Joseph was inspired early by jazz, soul and classical music recordings that he heard in and around his home. He took that passion and applied it to education. Beginning at the age of eight, Joseph’s aptitude and understanding of music history and theory just added to his natural ability to perform. With studies at Blue Lake Music Camp and Interlochen National Music Camp as a teenager, Joseph became an outstanding classical upright bassist for his age, earning him positions in both, the Michigan Youth Symphony and the Saginaw Symphony respectively. Joseph continued his education with studies at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI and Jazz studies at the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago, IL. There he applied his accumulated experienced to bass guitar and immersed himself in the Chicago music scene, most significantly, the blues scene!
Continuing to grow as a Bassist and performer, Joseph expanded his career into recording. Recording locally in Detroit with The Immortals and City Limits Blues Band. Joseph carried that knowledge on to recordings with Shawn Kellerman, Biscuit Miller and The Mix and The Nouveaux Honkies. With the opportunity to record with such giants Lucky Peterson and Jason Ricci, Joseph continues to expand his aptitude for the blues and music in general.
