BIOGRAPHY

Singer-songwriter Joseph Childress started writing and playing music in the mountains of Teller County, Colorado when he was 14 years old. Five years later – inspired by Woody Guthrie’s autobiography Bound For Glory – he strapped his guitar to his back and hopped a freight train. Dubbed a “perennial vagabond” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Joseph traveled and toured for two years, hopping trains and living in a van. His wanderings were punctuated only so he could play music, work ranch on the plains of Niobrara County, Wyoming, and rest his head in San Francisco, where he eventually settled down. All the while, his self-released CDr, known to fans as “the Rebirths”, was inspiring devoted listeners around the country. Those recordings were re-mastered and released in 2013 on Empty Cellar Records.


Joseph’s music draws inspiration from his close relationships and the wild nature of the American west. Compared to Townes Van Zandt, Jackson C. Frank, Jason Molina, and Bob Dylan (his biggest influence), his emotionally charged voice captivates over guitar playing that ranges from delicate finger-style to furious strumming. Joseph Childress has played shows across the western United States with numerous acts including Joanna Newsom, Thee Oh Sees, Mount Eerie, Kevin Morby, Wooden Shjips, Devendra Banhart, Richard Buckner, Little Wings, Entrance Band, Sonny and the Sunsets, Vetiver, and many more…
