Joey Costello is an American Singer-songwriter whose music is best described as heart warming "soulful folk." Possessing a voice that is characteristic of his influences; Ray LaMontagne and Damien Rice, Joey also utilizes a falsetto that defines his sound beyond any single element. Compared sometimes to Passenger, and City and Colour, Joey often builds his songs around profound statements transformed into catchy hooks.
Costello had a very busy 2017 featuring the release of his new EP "I'll Take You Home" as well as a fall tour of the UK capped off with a very special at capacity show at the Jam Cafe in Nottingham. Joey has been featured on BBC Introducing's The Beat with Dean Jackson, who referred to Joey's vocal performances as "truly enchanting." Joey is slated to share the stage in the UK this spring with the likes of Brooke Sharkey, Blaire Dunlop, and Emma Stevens.
All of this started when Joey decided to take an artistic sabbatical to Nottingham to collaborate with local songwriters and musicians. Little did he know he would relish the opportunity to tour and release new music here in the UK. With that Joey is slated to release new single "So High We Lose Our Minds" in April 2018 as well as a brand new EP The Wind Blows By this summer.
ABOUT THE EP - The Wind Blows By
The Wind Blows By - EP is a collection of songs written from my different experiences of longing. Sometimes deeply longing for beauty or for love, for the present or the past, and finally to be free of my own demons.
But within these stories, the present continues on and we are asked to enjoy every moment, in both good and bad, light and dark, full color, right now.
