As an extraordinary & emotive live act, Joseph Parsons brings audiences a rare glimpse of a compelling, evolving artist in motion.
A native son of Philadelphia (USA) currently living in Berlin, Germany for over 10 years, Parsons began his career in the early 1990's as one of the first crop of Singer Songwriters on the Philly scene playing the regional festivals & clubs before being signed to European label Blue Rose Records. Having made records beginning in 1989, Parsons has gone on to critical acclaim with an international career recording 13 Studio and many live CD's. He founded groups 'US Rails', 'Hardpan', 'Parsons Thibaud' & '4 Way Street' releasing records worldwide on Blue Rose Records, Sanctuary Records and on his private label, Meer Music.
Performing with Parsons is the exquisite Philadelphia based guitar player and songwriter Ross Bellenoit. Bellenoit weaves intricate yet evocative melodies while at times offering up vocal harmonies with Joseph. They have played together for over 10 years and while mostly in the Joseph Parsons Band in Europe, they have also done multiple Duo tours in Europe. This is the first DUO tour in the UK.
