Last night, I caught Joseph Arthur's impressive set at Maxwell's in Hoboken (review to come). One of the most unique shows I have witnessed, Arthur painted at the start of end of his set, his artwork up for sale at the end of the night.
In addition to painting, Arthur looped drum, guitar, and harmonica alongside his vocals with the help of multiple loop pedals and took many eager fan's requests shouted out to him. One of my favorites was his acoustic performance of "Honey And the Moon." A beautiful ballad with descriptive and relatable lyrics, it demonstrates Arthur's talent as a singer-songwriter.
Watch the video of Joseph Arthur performing "Honey And the Moon" a few years ago on the "Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn." To listen to his music, visit Arthur on MySpace.
