Leviticus Pharaoh (born Joselito Antonio Gonzalez Pharaoh) brings a daring wholly distinct sound. Electronic beats, sound bites, penetrating drums, swirling strings and Pharaohs distinct demanding vocals leave you with not only a musical experience but a journey of expression. Leviticus Pharaoh is deeply influence by the sounds Neil Young, Snap, Culture Beat, Aphex Twin, Joy Division, Phillip Glass and the more contemporary sounds of Antony and the Johnsons.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Leviticus moved to Spain at the age of 3 returning to Australia at 10. After a short stint at the University of Sydney studying Fine Arts Leviticus moved to London. Pharaoh fell heavily into the new London Electro scene while interning at City Rockers Recordings, he attained the name “Synth Core Boy” due to his electro trash track “Bad Girl” and his presence in East London’s thriving Electro underground scene.
Shortly after moving to London Leviticus was invited by Leticia Alcala, whom Leviticus met while Leticia was touring with The Bee Gees in Australia to join the Madonna “Drowned World” tour in London as her guest.
Fueled by his experience and thirst for more, Leviticus would spend the next 4 years jumping from New York City, Barcelona, Italy, Paris and Australia working in different fields from production, tour management and marketing before being asked to audition to play the March Hare in an upcoming adaption of Alice in Wonderland (directed by Jeremy Tarr , alongside an ever changing cast such as Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese, Whoopi Goldberg, Brittany Murphy and Jonathan Price). In 2008 Leviticus moved to New York City joining the band 'Augustus March', performing for Diane Von Vosternburg Christmas event in 2011 with their new single “Modern Soldier.” Shortly after a very promising start the band “Augustus March” came to an end due to conflicting differences. Taking an independent route, Leviticus is now preparing for his solo release working and writing with Geoff Strasser and Daniel Gould.
