Joseph to Headline The Wilma in Spring 2023

Portland, OR-based sister folk trio Joseph will return to Missoula for their first headlining show at The Wilma on May 15, 2023.

Consisting of sisters Allison, Meegan, and Natalie Closner — Joseph creates a mesmerizing and hypnotic sound with their magical vocal harmonies.

Their self-released debut Native Dreamer Kin came out in 2014. In 2016,  they released I’m Alone, No You’re Not, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. Their first single, “White Flag”, also came out in 2016 and reached #1 on the Adult Alternative Songs and was on Spotify’s US Viral Top Ten. Their most recent full-length album Good Luck, Kid was released in 2019 and reached number four on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart.

On April 28, 2023, Joseph released their highly anticipated new album The Sun (listen above). It builds on its predecessor’s cinematic pop, bringing a thrilling new energy into each of the album’s ten elegantly sculpted tracks. Joseph worked with acclaimed producers Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, First Aid Kit) and Christian “Leggy” Langdon (Amos Lee, BANKS) to build an irresistibly vibrant sound ranging from moody grandeur to pure anthemic glory.

Joseph has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonLater… with Jools HollandEllenCONANCBS This Morning, and NBC’s TODAY. They’ve landed on massive festival bills at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Sasquatch Festival, Glastonbury, and Outside Lands, among others.

About Joseph

For nearly a decade, Oregon-bred indie-pop trio Joseph have performed a certain emotional alchemy with their music, channeling their deepest inner tensions into songs that spark a life-changing shift in perspective. In the making of their third studio album The Sun, Natalie Closner and her sisters, twins Meegan Closner and Allison Closner focused their soul-searching songwriting on the quietly damaging forces that keep us from living fully in our truth (e.g., gaslighting, cultural conditioning, unconscious yet painfully limiting self-beliefs). Rooted in a newly emboldened sound that lets their breathtaking three-part harmonies shine more brightly than ever, the result is a body of work that radically expands our sense of possibility, ultimately illuminating a path toward greater peace and self-reliance even in the most chaotic of times.

The follow-up to Good Luck, Kid—a 2019 release that reached #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart—The Sun builds from its predecessor’s cinematic pop and imbues a thrilling new energy into each elegantly sculpted track. In bringing the album to life, Joseph worked with acclaimed producers like Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, First Aid Kit, Laura Veirs), Christian “Leggy” Langdon (Meg Myers, Amos Lee, BANKS), Jessica Dobson (Deep Sea Diver), and Joey Burns (Calexico), alongside songwriting collaborators including, Tayla Parx and Wynne Bennett, known for their work with artists such as Janelle Monae, Twin Shadow, Haim, Khalid, Normani and Ariana Grande. Collectively shaping an irresistibly vibrant sound encompassing everything from the moody grandeur of the album-opening “Waves Crash” to the pure anthemic glory of tracks like “Kicking Up The Light.” With the band taking a decidedly more hands-on role in the production process, The Sun continually achieves the exquisite feat of spinning incredibly complex concepts into sing-along-ready pop songs, providing a captivating backdrop for Joseph’s fearlessly personal storytelling.
