Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons

Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons

For more than 30 years, Jerry Joseph has been strapping on a guitar and chasing down truth, understanding and soul with such tenacity and resonant skill, he's marked as a hard charging kindred spirit to Joe Strummer, Warren Zevon and Patti Smith. While not a household name or critic's darling, Joseph is the archetypal musician's musician - something that's resoundingly clear on his sweeping new double album, Happy Book. Captured with muscle and blood by Joseph's longtime trio the Jackmormons, this latest chapter in his long, strange journey flows like glowing quicksilver through the modern psyche; where war and disaster wrestle with hope and faith and sometimes the best option is to sashay down to the local disco to mambo with the chicks with dicks, just to remind one's self that you're never too old or too dead to learn a couple new tricks.
