Jerry Joseph | 8:00 PM
Jerry Joseph is constantly touring. If it isn’t solo, it is with his rock band The Jackmormons or his side project with Dave Schools, The Stockholm Syndrome. Regardless of what configuration he is playing in, it is always about the songs.
On this solo tour Joseph will be highlighting songs from his recently released album, “Cherry”, as well as new songs which we can expect to hear on an upcoming solo or Jackmormons album. The songs on “Cherry” are intimate masterpieces that reveal the sights and sounds of life lived on the road. Live, the songs are accompanied by stories of their origins.
The first record Joseph has ever recorded in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, “Cherry’s” stripped down vocal and guitar recordings are the pinnacle of a successful career that has included musical collaborations with Vic Chesnutt, Pete Droge and Dave Schools (Widespread Panic, J. Mascis and the Fog), as well as producers such as Terry Manning (Led Zeppelin) and John Keane (R.E.M., 10,000 Maniacs). Joseph has also shared the stage with the likes of Neil Young, The Flaming Lips, DJ Logic, Curt Kirkwood and David Lindley.
When not touring or recording solo, Joseph is on the road with his power rock band, Jerry Joseph & the Jackmormons, who are celebrating their 10th year together this fall. They have spent part of the summer recording their next album. Joseph also writes and tours with his side project, the Stockholm Syndrome, a band he fronts with Dave Schools, Eric McFadden, Wally Ingram and Danny Dzuik.
Joseph got his start in music in the 80’s when he led the reggae/rock band Little Women, based out of Boulder, Colorado, which ruled the Rocky Mountain club circuit for most of the 80's and broke up in 1993. Joseph continued to record before an oft-publicized drug addiction temporarily sidelined his career. The process of getting clean took Joseph to New York, Montana, Salt Lake City, where the Jackmormons were formed in 1996, and eventually to Portland. Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons recently released “Mouthful of Copper” which is the second release from Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons on Terminus Records and follows the critically acclaimed Conscious Contact which was released in early 2002. Jerry Joseph & the Jackmormons have released four other albums as well.
“Sounding occasionally like John Mellencamp’s older, wiser and psychologically mixed-up sibling, Joseph writes complex, image-laden songs and infuses them with plenty of attitude, soulfulness and swagger.” – Washington Post more >>>
