Born and raised in Ghana, Joseph began playing piano at age 11 at his mom’s church. He later studied piano performance at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. During his days at Berklee, Joseph served as pianist/music director for a number of churches in the New England area as well as arranger/composer for several local artists.
Primary among Joseph’s influences are Oscar Peterson, George Duke, Hank Jones, Keith Jarrett, Yellow Jackets, Dino Kartsonakis and Richard Smallwood.
Joseph has released five albums; Quite Time in His Presence, Living Waters, Reflections, Piano Hymns, and Conversations on Piano. For his new album, Joseph has created a masterful set of unique pieces befitting a musician of such diverse background. Blending elements of classical, jazz, and contemporary music, Conversations on Piano is a beautiful collection of solo piano melodies soaked in genuine emotion. This beautiful music relaxes the mind as it gently soothes and uplifts the spirit. All 20 songs are played elegantly, and with a great deal of grace, creating a perfect atmosphere for reflection, meditation, and prayer.
Joseph’s music can be heard on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon, The River of Calm Radio, New Age Stars Radio, Aural Awakenings Radio, Enlightened Piano Radio, and Sleep Radio.
