Mark Joseph has established himself as a prolific singer/songwriter & band leader with projects including Mark Joseph and the American Soul, Momentary Lapse of Floyd, Down Lo, and the Built to Last All Stars. The year 2021 finds Joseph in the midst of releasing a solo record, Vegas Motel, in collaboration with drummer/producer, JT Bates (Big Red Machine, Taylor Swift, Hiss Golden Messenger). This while channeling his uniquely creative energy into the lead guitar role in the seminal Minnesota Jam Band, the Big Wu.
Joseph’s 2021 solo release, Vegas Motel, is a highly personal record rooted in the emotion of the year it was written (2020), yet reaching far beyond the confines of the times. Vegas Motel delicately emotes Joseph’s real-life experiences and relationships dating back to when he was a young man. Co-producer and drummer, JT Bates (Big Red Machine, Hiss Golden Messenger), and Engineer Alex Proctor (Grace Potter, Dead Man Winter), perfectly compliment the records musical tapestry further solidifying Joseph’s talent as a singer/songwriter and collaborator. Vegas Motel features 8 original tracks including the standout instrumental, Early Riser, featuring Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles.
