MARK JOSEPH The kids are doing it for themselves. Well. one kid in particular, namely Mark Joseph. Fed up with constant record company rejection. the 22-year-old English singer songwriter set about recording and releasing his own music. Many folk have done that before, but few have .. matched Joseph‘s success: he achieved two Top 40 singles with his first two releases. Yowzer. Now signed and set to release his debut album. Scream. Joseph sounds much as he looks, like the bastard offspring of Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller. There’s nothing groundbreaking about Joseph. just quality singatong tunes and an obvious determination to succeed. (Doug Johnstone) I King Tut's. Glasgow. Tue 1 Jun; the Venue. Edinburgh. Wed 2 Jun.
