I write atmospheric music that is based on my honest opinions. It is inspired by religious topics, personal dilemmas and feelings I wouldn't talk about normally. Everything I write is an honest secret.


Captives is my (Joseph Parsons) solo project. I write music that is extremely personal and can be interpreted in many ways. The sound has been likened to the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Radiohead. I have configured a band of musicians to take this live now and the show can promise to be an intense spectacle. The songs challenge subjects of religion, opinions and secrets about myself. I like to think they are written in a way that can speak to people. I have a massive interest in design as well which I like to flow into my music.


"Audience" can be heard here

4 track EP - "A Confident Appeal" to be recorded soon.
