Joseph Average was born to rock the mic. His musical interest really formed in his latter years in high school where he began free-styling at house parties after several alcoholic beverages.
After piecing together his home studio in his dad’s basement, he started recording himself along with Ravenous and Premonition, and eventually the three emcees formed Proof Of Life.
Proof Of Life had the shortest career in hip hop history. The break up led to Joseph selling real estate for two years without making any music.
After repetitive requests from Stuart Claiborn for Joseph to pic up the mic again, Joseph did just that. Within six months Walk With Me was written and recorded.
This record touches on everything from daily rituals, to the hair on his face, to his conversation with gOD. The old school party jams keep your head rockin and the political talk keeps you thinking. Joseph is now working on his sophomore album entirely produced by Positive ID titled “Positive Vibrations”.
Joseph is now co-owner/operator of the Seattle indie label Northwest Headgear Music.
