Biography

MY MUSIC IS A NEW SOUND IN ACOUSTIC RHYTHMS, COMBINED WITH SYMPHONY, AND THE SOUNDS OF BEAUTIFUL OCEAN.

ABOUT JOHN JOSEPH > John Joseph has one of the most unique musical training experiences that anyone has ever had. A long time ago in Milford, Connecticut, on Anchor Beach, he would take his guitar and sit upon a huge rock called, Signal Rock. As the waves would come in, with eyes closed, he would play chords to the actions and reactions of the waves. As the waves would hit the rocks, chords and rhythms would come to him as he played, and then the waves would recede and again new chords and rhythms would come for those waves and their reactions. One night, late into the morning hours, John Joseph was again sitting upon Signal Rock with his acoustic guitar in his hands, his eyes closed. He was playing to the Ocean. After about two hours of straight playing, he opened his eyes and could not believe what he saw. To his amazement, there were people all over the beach. They were sitting on the sidewalk path and steps, and all of them clapped and applauded. This was the turning point for John Joseph; he knew, in that moment, that music would be a part of his life forever. As time would have it, John Joseph began to get known. He played his music everywhere he could find a place to play, to anyone who would listen. Eventually, he was able to make a living playing his music in various places throughout Connecticut. And then the time came for him to make a decision, as he wanted to go professional. He decided that going to Maryland and the Washington, D.C. music circuit would be the answer for the next level of his musical journey. As destiny began to unfold, John Joseph won favor with many people and began the professional night club circuit throughout Maryland and the Eastern Sea Shore. It was at this time that he began to focus his music on the jazz scene. He absolutely fell in love with jazz music. This was no coincidence as John Joseph's background was thoroughly influenced and affected by many great musicians such as> YANNI ; STING; CHUCK LOEB; STANLEY CLARKE; MUDDY WATERS; STEVIE WONDER; THE ALMAN BROTHERS; BOB JAMES; RICK BRAUN; VICTOR WOOTEN; STEPHEN STILLS; CHRIS BOTTI; BILLY HOLIDAY; DIANA ROSS; YES; HERBIE HANCOCK; LEE RITENOUR; ERIC CLAPTON; GEORGE BENSON; and of course THE BEATLES! With this great influence, he focused on his own NEW Acoustic Jazz Sound. There is no doubt that anyone who experiences the Acoustic Rhythms of John Joseph will be experiencing a beautiful new sound in music. It is John Joseph's desire that this New Sound will bring great healing, love, joy,and peace to people all over the Earth. .
