LOOK WITHIN DEBUT ALBUM OUT MARCH 5, 2021! Spirituality has been a major theme in drummer/composer Joe Dyson’s work. Born in New Orleans to a religious and musically gifted family, Joe began his artistry at the tender age of 2. It was in the church that he cultivated the intuitive way of learning, guided by folklore and immersed in the vast culture of the city. Dyson thrives at the intersection of the church, traditional study and apprenticeship. It is this trinity, combined with sounds and sights from touring the world, that has culminated in a stunning debut album. LOOK WITHIN is a sonic exploration of spirituality. It marks the first time Joe has given himself permission to explore his thoughts, and express himself via harmonic score. LOOK WITHIN blends elements of gospel, jazz, R&B, AFRO New Orleans Rhythm, and Spiritual Philosophies that manages to create a luscious soundscape. Pushing the boundaries of typical modern jazz, the laid back and intimate LOOK WITHIN is an emotional and introspective journey that allows us a glimpse into the mind of Joe Dyson.
