Biography

Joseph Arthur (Akron, OH, 1971) had already been writing songs and playing music as a child. At the tender age of 16 he was the bass player for Frankie Starr and the Chill Factor which broke up in 1990, but fate was kind to Arthur a few years later when while working in a guitar shop in Georgia he was discovered by none other than Peter Gabriel.
Gabriel was impressed enough with ... Read more in Amazon's Joseph Arthur Store

I would say that it is his BEST album to date hands down!

Joseph Arthur has been quietly gaining a deservedly fine reputation for his emotionally raw, yet very well crafted songs.
J. Taylor
Amazing songs, well constructed, different, mixed instrumentation, great use of drums and guitar and voice.

Joseph Arthur was "discovered" by Peter Gabriel, who signed him originally on his Real World label, and you can hear some of Gabriel's influence in Arthur's work. I haven't heard the previous albums, but after getting acquiainted with this release, I do intend to seek them out. Arthur is an accomplished artist (in more than one sense of the word - his slightly disturbing primitive-aboriginal style art graces the cover and booklet) with a diverse musical palette, from crunchy alternative-style rock to beautful ballads. "Can't Exist" falls into the former category, a harrowing yet melodic tune about a dysfunctional family member, strung out and on the street, that may hit listeners like me as close to home. "Echo Park" is a simply gorgeous love song, complete with vocal harmony and strings. "Even Tho" is a catchy, even single-worthy, R&B-flavored tune. These are the highlights of a generally satisfying CD that contains smartly-written lyrics and intriguing, ear-catching instrumentation. It made many critics' and listeners' best-of-2004 lists, and rightly so. It is one of the most interesting and enjoyable CD's of the last year.

Joseph Arthur has been quietly gaining a deservedly fine reputation for his emotionally raw, yet very well crafted songs. Breaking away from the RealWorld label, where he released the excellent 'Come to Where I'm From' and 'Redemption's Son' amongst others, he has added a richer more polished layer to his honest lyrics and affecting music.

None of the tracks reached me as immediately as favourites, such as 'In the Sun', 'September Baby' or the beautiful 'Honey and the Moon' but soon enough a few gems appear. 'Echo Park' and 'A Smile that Explodes' are standout tracks in an album that rewards the listener throughout. His vocals focus on the higher register more than past outings, which is refreshing, but this is as characteristic and interesting as ever. Some tracks may be more geared towards an American audience, such as 'Leave Us Alone' but there is plenty to keep the British listener entertained, too.

Appearing on lauded soundtracks such as the OC and Shrek 2, and supporting REM, his unique style and gravely voice have already won him quite a few fans but this new album should see that growth continue. Recommended.

There is genius in the year 2004 & beyond. His name is Joseph Arthur.

This guy not only writes & sings great songs, every single tune is great with meaning....

This is a gem. A rare find that is buried within the system that is called music.

Mr. Arthur's voice is a very powerful one. I often wonder how one with such talent can be so underated.

I LOVE this guy. I LOVE his albums. I love Our Shadows Will Remain. I would say that it is his BEST album to date hands down! (however, all of his work is a stroke of genius).

Entertainment Weekly Review:

With his razor-shredded voice and love of murky sonic textures, Joseph Arthur always sounds as if he's groping his way out of the dark. But as heard on Our Shadows Will Remain, an especially forceful and cohesive album, no one fumbles about better.

On beautifully dank songs like Wasted or Can't Exist, Arthur never fails to find his way to the light and, in the process, lay waste to just about every coy male singer songwriter in his path. (by David Browne, Entertainment Weekly 2004 review).

I play Our Shadows Will Remain often & it just gets better & better. If you are looking for some high quality music, then please get the album 0f 2004. You will get your money's worth 10 times over.

What can I say that most of the people reviewing this cd haven't already said.

Arthur is OUTRAGEOUSLY talented. It's almost shocking.

The depth of songwriting and production values are so intense.

It's extremely well recorded and mixed music.

Anyone into audio manipulation should just buy all of his albums right now.

"Stumble and Pain" is probably my favourite track. The sinister tone of it and the synth effects are just superb.

As with all Arthur albums the vocals are dense, layered, and its something he's obviously worked on for a long time and it really pays off on this album!

Anyone new to him should buy this immediatly and buy redemption's son straight after that.

WHAT A MUSICIAN!

Joseph Arthur's new album, "Our Shadows Will Remain" is a new favorite of mine. I discovered him about two years ago with his release "Redemption's Son", and he has been one of my favorite artists since.

I was fortunate to see him perform live at a small gig in San Francisco a few weeks ago, and I have to say that he is one of the few artists that sounds even better live. He is a true musical genious- and watching him create his music on stage was an incredible experience.....layer upon layer he would place complex tunes and beats, one on top of the other. At first I heard him create these layers and I thought, "how the hell is THAT going to work into a song?".....but sure enough, it worked every time, and the final products were always masterpieces of creativity and musical genious.

I bought his new album, "Our Shadows Will Remain", as soon as it came out, anxious to hear his new creations (and hopefully find some of the unrecognizeable songs he sang at the concert that I loved).

This album definately does incorporate a more 1980's synthesizer type of influence, but it works incredibly well. Someone referred to this latest recording as sounding "overproduced", but maybe this can be attributed to his latest inspiration and use of 80s synthesizer influences. I think it's pretty difficult to make a synthesizer based song sound more raw, real and not "overproduced".

I actually admire and respect Joseph's exploration and change of various styles and influences. If he continued to produce song after song of the same influences and in the same manner, I would get bored of him. Joseph's music is soo complex that one never gets bored of listening to it. It is as if every single time you listen to one of his songs, you hear something new and different.
