Compared to Townes Van Zandt, Jackson C. Frank, Jason Molina, and Bob Dylan (his biggest influence), Joseph Childress’ emotionally charged voice captivates over guitar playing that ranges from delicate finger-style to furious strumming.

Drawing inspiration from his close relationships and the wild nature of the American west, the tracks on his new self-titled album are borne from his most recent adventures working on a cattle ranch in Wyoming, riding trains, and living out of his car.

Poignant lyrics about loneliness and the western landscape are right at home with a stronger country sound – listen to Virginia Bound from it below.
