Biography

"...Derek, Adam and Kevin have been performing together for about a year - only six months of which the band has been a foursome. Despite the fact that this would be considered their rookie year (as a group), they have managed to snag themselves some decent gigs including opening up for a national act, Wakefield, and competing in the Finals for the World Series of Rock. The band said that their music could easily be classified as pop-indy rock, but that so much of the music is influenced by genres that aren't remotely close to that clasiification. Ryan's bass playing is heavely jazz influenced. Adam's musical backround stems from the metal scene. Still other band influences include Fugazi and Rainer Maria, among dozens of others.

How would Go Josephine's live show be described? An upbeat stage show that is full of many subtleties helping to make them just a little more musically unique. With vocals right out front and strong harmonies..." Revue Magazine
