Singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur has been on tour this year in support of his album “The Graduation Ceremony”, released earlier this spring. The album is Arthur’s first solo album in five years and his first release since last year’s debut of the supergroup Fistful of Mercy (with Ben Harper and Dhani Harrison).
“The Graduation Ceremony” drew praise from Rolling Stone (“It goes without saying that this album will be on repeat for the next six months to come.”) and NPR (“As with much of Joseph’s musical and visual work, layers â€” however delicate â€” create depth, not excess.”). Arthur also performed late summer at Pearl Jam’s 20th Anniversary Weekend.
Catch Joseph Arthur performing at the Bowery Electric this Saturday December 17th (tickets) in New York City. will be opening the show. The show is also a benefit for Toys for Tots so don’t forget to bring your toys and stuffed animals to the show for donation.
