Joseph Arthur

  • Rubin Museum of Art 150 W 17th St New York, NY, 10011 (map)


The critically acclaimed singer/songwriter returns to the Rubin Museum.

"When I first heard Jo's music, his lyrics jumped out at me. I love his words, love his music. It's great to see some of his best written work assembled. His words rattle and rumble and prise open the cage."


After getting rave reviews for his collection of Lou Reed songs, Lou, and coming off a huge tour with the Afghan Whigs, Arthur had a notable 2014. Expect to hear many of Arthur's own hits, including the outstanding In The Sun, Honey and the Moon and I Miss The Zoo, as well as tracks from his concept album, The Ballad of Boogie Christ. Also an renowned poet and visual artist, Arthur is known to complete entire paintings while performing on stage. He has worked with Peter Gabriel and Ben Harper, and had his song "In The Sun" covered by Michael Stipe and Coldplay a few years ago.
