Joseph Arthur

The Ohio-born singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur has a long association with the WOMAD family: he was the first American act to be signed to Peter Gabriel’s Real World label twenty years ago and has played at many WOMAD events.

This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of the release of Redemption’s Son, his third album for Real World, and its timely reissue should bring Arthur’s startlingly beautiful music and acute, poetic lyrics to a new audience.

The reissue is accompanied by Morning Star, a second set of unreleased material from the same era.
