Joseph Huber tours Europe for the first time as solo artist

05-03-2014

Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber is a founding member of, and also had spent 6 years of playing banjo and heavy touring with the Milwaukee, WI based "streetgrass" group, The .357 String Band - a group that, despite it's abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity, is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movements. Hard living put together with plenty of downtime has offered more than enough motivation and opportunity for his songwriting.

"Bury Me Where I Fall", Huber's introductory solo album was an unseen side to his writing - less high-octane and blistering as his known work, it reveals multiple, new landscapes, ranging anywhere from desolate, world-weary ones; to brooding and ominous ones. His 2nd release "Tongues of Fire" is much the flip-side to that - joyful, light-hearted, and laughing even in the face of hard times. Being a multi-instrumentalist, Huber performs all the tracks on his records on his own (fiddle, banjo, guitar, harmonica, percussion, and bass). Huber can be seen playing with a backup band, or also opting for a "one-man-band" setup - singing and playing banjo/guitar/harmonica and opting for a trusty ol' Samsonite suitcase as a kick-drum. This first tour in Europe he will tour solo. See all tourdates below! His lyricism and introspective writing style has received high acclaim from many Americana enthusiast looking for a more substantive substitute to much of today's modern country. Despite his decision to record and self-release all his works, he has steadily gained ground and gotten much positive press, and has shown himself a sincere and influential member of the growing roots movement.
