Mark Joseph / Mutlu

with guest Superior Siren(solo)

The Hook and Ladder is proud to host three amazing singer/songwriters for a night of soul, r&b, and eerie folk featuring Mark Joseph, Mutlu, & Superior Siren(solo) on Friday, August 9 night in our intimate air conditioned Theater. Limited reserved seats available to see this world class collection of artists perform live!
American Soul is a fitting brand for Mark Joseph; since his 2017 album by that title, he has charted a relentless and soulful course through America, and Americana, from blues to country to psychedelic rock and everything in between.  On his newest offering, “Palisade Peach,” Joseph’s fourth full-length album, he continues this journey, from his soul, straight to your heart. It is a “blues” album in the truest sense of the word, with familiar 12 bar strains that echo the march of American music from the rural southern US up the Mississippi, to cities like Minneapolis and Chicago where it found a wider urban audience; it is the blues that has given rise to “rhythm and blues,” to “soul” and to “rock and roll.” You find it all on “Palisade Peach.”
With his silk-like vocals, Mutlu gently showers over melodies like rain. A Philadelphia native and first-generation American of Turkish decent, Mutlu combines his innate Philly-soul style with elements of folk, reggae and rock. This cohesive blend of music creates a rare and retro sound that is entirely timeless. Mutlu has already made substantial headway with his high-caliber soulful sound. He’s collaborated and toured extensively as a support act with legendary duo Daryl Hall & John Oates. He even holds the distinction of having made the most guest appearances on Daryl Hall’s acclaimed, award-winning TV show “Live From Daryl’s House”. Mutlu has toured as a support act and longtime collaborator with noted singer/songwriter Amos Lee, and has shared stages with the likes of Adele, Katy Perry, John Hiatt, Leon Russell, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Todd Rundgren, Shuggie Otis & many more. Additionally, he was the support act on the North American leg of Joe Jackson’s acclaimed “Rain” tour. Mutlu has rocked stages across Europe and America, including: Greek Theatre (Los Angeles, CA), Ascend Amphitheater (Nashville, TN), Tower Theatre (Philadelphia, PA), Royal Festival Hall (London, UK), to name a few.
“Truth and love is well worth the struggle, It won’t come easy but it’s worth some good trouble” – “Lifeline, Mutlu
S U P E R I O R  S I R E N  is an eerie folk project inspired by Lake Superior and Siren mythology. The haunting music offers an alluring and dangerous expression of vulnerability and desire. Superior Siren was created by singer-songwriter Laura Sellner. She debuted her captivating voice and heartfelt lyrics in 2014 with the solo EP ‘Lotus in the Muck’. In 2016 Sellner joined forces with cellist Rachel Gobin, bassist Nyssa Krause, and drummer Emma Deaner to craft a mesmerizing blend of vocals, strings, and percussion. The all-female band became a sisterhood of sirens, producing the 2018 LP ‘Superior Siren‘ followed by a tour of the Midwest. Another ethereal solo album titled ‘Kill Your Darlings’ was released in 2021 spotlighted by the Love Poem single and music video. Superior Siren enchants audiences as a solo or full band act; performing with DeVotchKa, Low, Trampled by Turtles, Charlie Parr, HALEY, and Bon Iver as well as collaborating with the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. Superior Siren will release new eerie folk music in 2024.
