Recent Yellow Year Records signee Joseph Hein today announces his new album AM Gold, which will be released on October 14th. He has offered us the first taste of the new album, premiering single “In The Sunshine” via My Old Kentucky Blog.
Joseph Hein hails from the Palouse in eastern Washington State. With lush arrangements and warm distortion, he creates dreamy harmonious sounds with an energetic uptempo rhythm influenced by songs of yesteryear’s AM country and R&B gold. He is often accompanied by an array of instruments including a trombone, a violin, keyboards and guitars that add to the band’s distinct style. Joseph Hein sings honestly about good times and the bad and the music bears witness to the road unkempt and a winding trail.
Joseph grew up making music in the rural eastern WA region known as the Palouse. With that small town isolation the multi instrumentalist Joseph Hein gleaned from a range of influences and played with a tight knit group of kids in all sorts of bands that ranged from punk to electronic pop. The path continued into the DIY scene of Olympia, WA where that intensely creative place inspired further collaborations that continue today.
Hein has released two official albums as a solo artist and AM Gold is his third. Between touring, recording and collaborating with others he hides out in the hills and plays his new bass. Watch this space for more news. Pre-OrderAM Gold
