Originally born in Liberia, Joseph Eid grew up in the suburbs of New York. He was raised in a strict and traditional home where the arts were only supported as a hobbie and never a career. So when it was time for college, he studied psychology and pre-med but all the while, he was always dreaming about a career in music. After his first semester in Medical school, the dream got too big to hold and Joseph made the bold choice of dropping out and moving to New York City to pursue music. He joined a band, picked up a guitar, and the songs poured out like rain. His journey led him to Los Angeles in 2007 where he started playing regularly at open mikes and showcases. Shortly after, he began working with world-renowned guitarist/songwriter David Lamar, honing his songwriting at weekly showcases at the Stone Bar, leading the prolific singer/songwriter to write over 30 new songs as well as record his Debut EP Cardiac Output (josepheidmusic.com).
The result of his work is his first released studio album ‘Human’ on november 19th. Listen to his first single “Ready Now”, an amazing piece, where Eid is playing with the rythm and a lush instrumentation. Also a really good video!

At the age of ten he became a member of the Metropolitan children’s chorus, where he sang in over thirty different operas along with performing solo pieces in Tosca, Magic Flute and Billy Bud. When his voice changed at 14 he started writing pop-songs influenced by his love of the Beatles. A self taught guitarist, bassist and pianist, Iggy also took two years of classical voice training after leaving the MET. Throughout college he played and toured with a number of rock bands.
After struggling as a indie-solo artist he began sending demos back in forth with two friends (Hubertus Dahlem and Frederic Todenhöfer) from Germany whom he had met In college. The three sparked an immediate chemistry that resulted in a prolific output of songs, undeniably the best work of his young career.
Over the past year the three of them have been working on what is going to be Iggy’s debut album as a solo artist. The new sound, characterized by elements of Brit-pop, electronica and classic Rock, infuses methodic and anthemic arrangements with strong melodies and clever lyrics (Source: Facebook).

He describes this record as his emotions he felt while traveling and ending a chapter in his life. Ryan Weber wrote and recorded in hotel rooms in Kenya, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia. He describes this in this way: ‘I think rather than being influenced by genre, I’m influenced by my surrounding, music is a component of surrounding, but not the whole, as am I, thus I try to channel what I’m feeling in that setting.’ Listen to “Departeueres“, an amazing collection of records, fitting perfectly here. Thanks Ryan Weber for these amazing sounds!
