(December 2, 2022) – Today, bold new voice Joseph Lawrence shares his latest single “Empty House,” out now via Sony Music UK/RCA Records. The track is accompanied with a live video that solidifies his position as one of the most exciting new vocalists to emerge from the UK. The single follows his September debut, “Tomorrow,” through which Clash describes Joseph as “a remarkable vocalist and a pure technician – mellifluous, multi-faceted.”
“Empty House” finds Lawrence weaving technically astonishing vocal runs in and out of emphatic production from his collaborator, Fryars: it is a dexterous performance, one that shows the range of Lawrence’s abilities.
The release is accompanied by a searing live video that shows the true power of Lawrence’s voice and places an emphasis on his mesmeric performance style. Backed by his band, Lawrence delivers “Empty House” with a flair possessed only by the most gifted performers.
Over the past two months Lawrence has performed a show per month at St Pancras Old Church in London, honing his sound and performing cuts from his forthcoming 2023 debut album. On December 12th, he completes his run of performances at the venue with a third and final show.
About Joseph Lawrence
Joseph Lawrence is blessed with a once-in-a-generation vocal – one that, in the space of a year, has landed him a partnership with RCA Records and a half a million-strong online following. The artist began his career after moving from Ipswich to London, turning heads in the city’s jazz scene and honing his craft at the legendary jazz club Ronnie Scott’s – building a network of remarkable players in the process. From here Joseph began playing in bands, and slowly shaping his own music in the background before working on new music in collaboration with Fryars (Mark Ronson, Pharrell) and Dave Okumu (Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas).
