Joseph Vincent is an up-and-coming acoustic ARTIST striving to make a name for himself in the world of MUSIC. Growing up, Joseph had an open EAR for music, listening to all types of genres from hip-hop to rock. He picked up his first GUITAR at the age of 15 and started off by playing covers of some of his main musical influences, Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz. He began writing and COMPOSING his own original songs at the age of 16.
Joseph has played large LA-venues including The House of Blues, The Knitting Factory, El Rey Theatre, The Roxy Theatre, and The Troubadour, and also plays at smaller, more INTIMATE venues and local coffee-shops. Joseph’s tunes can also be found streaming through the World Wide Web, with over 350,000 plays on MYSPACE and over 60,000 subscribers on YOUTUBE. Proud of his Filipino heritage, Joseph performed at the 17th Annual Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture in August of 2008, playing his MUSIC for the thousands of ears in attendance. In the summer of 2009, Joseph traveled to the Philippines and played his first show overseas at My Brother’s Mustache, a folk bar in Quezon City. Joseph entered Kababayan Superstar, a contest produced by Kababayan LA-18, Southern California’s local FILIPINO news-station, and WON.
In April 2010, Joseph was featured on NBC’s The Ellen Degeneres Show for their Wonderful Web of Wonderment segment, where he performed an acoustic cover of Iyaz’s Replay.
