"There’s a compelling quality to the happy-sad dynamic that drives all of Joesef’s work."
Dork

Toen de Schotse artiest Joesef, zo'n twee weken pre-pandemie, in onze Witloof Bar speelde, had de BBC hem net in haar hyperinvloedrijke Sound of 2020-lijstje opgenomen. Drie jaar later is er dan eindelijk een debuutalbum en waar kan de singer-songwriter dat beter voorstellen dan in de Botanique? Op 'Permanent damage' leren we Joesefs hedendaagse, queer versie van soulmuziek kennen, gehard door hartzeer en de ruwe straten van Glasgow. Het belooft een innemend en bij momenten hartverscheurend portret te zijn van een jongen wiens jeugd de nodige uitdagingen inhield. Joesefs "sad boy bangers" werden al geroemd door Sam Smith en Mark Ronson, alsook enthousiast onthaald op grote Britse festivals als Reading & Leeds. In het voorjaar van 2022 dus opnieuw te zien in Brussel!

THEO BLEAK

2022 was a big year for the prolific Dundee-based singer/songwriter Theo Bleak. She released two EPs–her debut EP Fragments in May and For Seasons in November, which was dedicated to the ecological crisis. She also supported Joesef on his UK/IE tour, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, and headlined two sold-out Edinburgh and Glasgow shows.

As she explains in an interview with The Skinny last year, “when I was writing songs, I realised how critical I was of myself and how often I wrote about myself in an exceptionally negative way. Creating Theo gave me an outlet to look at my life with more forgiving eyes.” She also explains: “even though you can't start fresh, you can choose the best pieces and create something new of yourself. Theo Bleak is a creation of that journey in many ways.

"Currently, Theo Bleak is working on her latest project entitled "Iliad", a 6 track EP inspired by the famous ancient Greek poem. She uses this framework to describe her own life and how being "roommates with the past" has impacted her. Theo Bleak's "Iliad" EP will be released in May of this year, with the single "Homer" coming out March 31st. 2023 is proving to be an exciting time for Theo Bleak as she kicked off the year with a support slot for Suede in January. She's also set to support Joesef in his upcoming UK and EU tour.
