The underground music scene in New York City is hard to top, and this cultural capital is lucky enough to be home to many talented musicians. Here is a short introduction to one of our favorite NYC-based musicians, Joe Marson. His songs are a mix of folk rock and blues, but they maintain an authentic, unique quality that we just can’t get enough of.
This track is the perfect blend of Joe’s soulful lyrics and powerful voice.
Here With Me
This is the song for you if you ever feel like climbing a mountain or chasing after your long lost love.
This acoustic song demonstrates the cheekiness of Joe’s lyrics and is just a magnificently beautiful tune.
Are You That Somebody?
One of Joe’s favorite instruments is his own mouth, and we know why. His beatbox skills are out of this world.
You Don’t Need A Man
This is a simple, bluesy song that makes you want to sway in your seat.
Poor Saint John
Let Marson take you away with this powerful piece.
Piece X Piece
This is the perfect party song to belt with your friends.
Lost In The Sun
This is the kind of tune that makes you want to lie on the beach all day long without a care in the world.
And The Lightning, He Will Ride
As is evident in this video, Joe is a talented musician and performer.
