ABOUT

Hi. My name is Jo. I am a rock n roll songwriter-singer and i am always looking for more talented musicians to record my songs and play shows with.
I studied composition with David Zoffer and others at NEC and I have been writing for my bands since. (JO and the MFers then Sonic Bomb then JOSEPHIN and now for my full-on solo style as Jo Madden).
My songs deal with heavy socially conscious subject but in a fun way that the audience can get into. With positive messages and an against all odds attitude they are intended to empower and uplift. Both lyrically and musically. (So lets turn it up please)!


I have chord progressions and notations for everything. And reference tracks for folks who prefer learning by ear.

This upcoming recording we're heading towards is going to be a big production of my most recent Hard-Rock anthems at Qdivision studios in Somerville with an amazing engineering crew.
We're talking a full string ensemble, brass 'n' horns, rock piano, large choruses and a strong core band.

This whole thing will be documented and later edited into a couple of music videos.
And some great shows will follow after the release date.

Hope to hear from you (or from someone you know who might be interested),
-Jo

MUSIC

CALENDAR

Past Events

Currently auditioning advanced players capable of learning existing music (both reference tracks and notation available for your convenience) for a big recording production of two epic songs by Josephin Madden.

DRUMS
(Drummers from a metal, punk or a driving/energetic rock background sound the best with these songs).

BASS
(Bassists from a metal, punk or a driving/energetic rock background sound the best with these songs). Backing vocals a plus but not a must.

VIOLA, VIOLIN, CELLO

PIANO (Rock style)

FIDDLE

Folks who can find the time to learn their part at home then come down and practice with us a few times over the next 2 months will be preferred. (And we can offer rides if you dont drive).
Unfortunately we cannot offer any pay in advance at this time but there are other great incentives in addition to being a part of a really great pro recording of these super empowering songs.

Email Josephin for more info at Josephin at Josephin Inc dot com.

Hi. My name is Jo. I am a rock n roll songwriter-singer and i am looking for talented musicians to record and play shows with me.
I went to school for composition at NEC and been writing for my bands since. My songs focus on empowerment and positive messages with an against all odds attitude.

I am specifically looking for very energetic, hard driving metal / punk /rock n roll players, because from my experience, my songs sound best when they are tight and full of driving power.
I need EXCELLENT people that will LOVE the sound/songs. Otherwise the songs will not reach their full effect. Which is intended to empower.

All the music is written and i have made reference tracks for folks who prefer learning by ear.
And you'll be welcome to add your flare/voicing anywhere you feel like it within the structure as long as it adds rather then detract from the overall composition.

This upcoming recording is going to be a big production of my most recent three songs at Qdivision studios with an amazing engineering crew that worked on some of Boston's biggest current names.
We're talking a full string ensemble, rock piano, large choruses and a very strong core band.

This whole thing will be documented and later edited into a music video.
And some great shows will follow after the release date.

Everyone on board is super talented, super into this, easy to get a long with folks and i pray to find more likeminded individuals ASAP.
Hope to hear from you (or from someone you know who might be interested),
-Jo
