Even before the release of his first album, Joesef was opening for Paolo Nutini, counting Elton John among his fans and being compared to Amy Winehouse or Sam Smith. And that’s just the beginning. A rising star of British pop-soul, the Glasgow singer confirms the hype on his album Permanent damage, released at the beginning of the year. In 13 tracks, his androgynous voice makes us dream, cry or dance at the same time. Inspired by both the iconic productions of the Motown label and those of Tame Impala or Kendrick Lamar, the album manages to find the sweet spot between vintage soul and current pop.
