Up and Coming Music for the Soul

A Band Called Joseph

This weekend I went to a music festival called "Gentlemen of the Road" in the small town of Walla Walla, Washington. The festival consumed the whole weekend, closed off all the main streets of the town, and brought people from far and wide to watch huge headliners like 'The Foo Fighters' and 'Mumford and Sons'. And those bands were amazing to watch perform. But of all the bands that were there, my favorite by far was a band called 'Joseph'.

I walked down the main street of downtown Walla Walla on a Thursday night with some friends to see some of the local and smaller bands play. As we made out way down a side street and up to the stage, we heard three voices singing in perfect harmonization. I was immediately drawn towards their sound. When we arrived they were singing their most popular hit, Cloudline, a very gentle and powerful song. I loved being blanketed in their voices under the bright lights of the stage. Cloudline Video

'Joseph' is a band of three sisters from Portland, Oregon. The name 'Joseph' came from a couple different places. The first place was their grandfather, and the second was a small town in eastern Oregon where they spent time with their grandfather on his farmstead. Lastly, it came from the biblical figure. Along with the simple, yet intricate name, the home page if their website states, “Expect honest words and genetically perfected harmonies”. I can definitely say after their performance, that they met those expectations.

They went on to play Wind, a song where their sound was really powerful and energetic. Each sister was at their mic singing with their extremely complementary voices, and tapping their feet in sync to the song. I loved their show because it was so intimate. The relationship between the performers and audience was so close that when they played I felt like I was right up on stage with them feeling the sensation of the music. Wind Video

Some of the highlights of their show that night were also their covers. Unexpectedly, they did pop covers of Beyoncé’s Pretty Hurts and Britney Spears’s Toxic that were absolutely beautiful and unique. Toxic Cover

After the show as over I waited to meet the band. I had never heard of 'Joseph' before that night, and was curious to talk to them. They were so kind and fun to everyone they talked to. They even agreed to take a picture with me in their merchandise booth.

Over all going to see them play was not just a show, but an experience with the band and absolutely loved every minute of it. They are for those who are music lovers and those who are just looking for something beautiful!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.
