"Mr. Webb too is hard to categorize, but there is no doubt he's a natural star..." - Roslyn Sulcas, NY Times

The artistry of Joseph Webb embodies a realm of musical mixes saturated in the lyrics of rebirth and the affirmation of SELF. Relentless in the art of genre mash-up, each composition is a reconstruction of the genre in which it is rooted. The lyrical arrangements become a quasi-meditative chant in the similar tone of inspired- self-determination: Reach. Stretch. Be all you can be. Not ashamed to stand alone and sing… This creation in song becomes trancelike as you digest each lyric. Inclusive of all things positive, relatable, desirable, relevant, loving (both eros&agape), spiritually uplifting, gratifying and nutritionally necessary, Joseph Webb is the musical semblance of the Griot in rhythm & rhyme.

Cast includes:

Theo Hill - Piano
Joe Blaxx - Drums
Nate "NJOB" Jones - Electric Bass (schedule permitting)

Special Guests TBA...
