Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons In Vancouver
THE MEDIA CLUB ON AUGUST 21
Vancouver, BC ~ Paul Mercs Concerts is pleased to partner with The Media Club in Vancouver in support of the upcoming tour date for Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons on Tuesday, August 21.
For over 30 years, Jerry Joseph has been strapping on a guitar and chasing down truth, understanding and soul with a tenacity and resonant skill that mark him as a hard-charging kindred spirit to Joe Strummer and Patti Smith. While neither a household name nor a critic’s darling, Joseph is a musician’s musician, something resoundingly clear on his sweeping new double album, Happy Book.
As 2012 gets rolling, Jerry Joseph is extending his global reach, taking advantage of the internet’s ability to find audiences worldwide, with tours in Southeast Asia and Europe. Despite the sort of roadblocks and turns of fortune that usually crush most musicians, Joseph survives and thrives in a way that’s heartening and stirring on Happy Book, a clear-eyed survivor’s hymnal.
“I’m lucky. I work. I’ve never had to play in a cover band. I’ve never had to wear a funny hat”, says Joseph. “Perhaps because of the lack of traditional success, I’ve put out about a record a year and it has kept me creatively honest. I don’t rehash my past. I don’t repeat any of my old hits…because I don’t have any big hits”, he says with a laugh.
Tickets for Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons at The Media Club are $10.00 and available online HERE.
