Joseph Eid. Human.
Joseph Eid Music (BMI), 2013.
Joseph Eid has moved from Liberia to New York to Los Angeles, from psychology to med school to music, and this diversity and range show up in his first full length album released late last year, Human. He’s a modern troubadour with a silken velvety style that passes from slam poet to country crooner. I’m going to let your see for yourself the magic that is this album, because there’s some other business in the music world as well to attend to. You can stream Human on SoundCloud.
Something else to bring to your attention- a couple of weeks ago, the Americana Music Association announced their awards nominees for the year in Americana music. You might recognize a few names, like the Milk Carton Kids, the Avett Brothers, and Lake Street Dive. Congrats to all the nominees!
