Joseph Eid defied his parents, and the odds to follow his Passion for Music

June 8, 2018

Since the release of his Human LP, Folk-Pop artist Joseph Eid has been garnering considerable buzz. He has been featured in American Songwriter Magazine’s “Best New Music” column and was named as one of the 100 Hottest Live Unsigned Artists by Music Connection Magazine. The magazine has also reviewed his latest EP release “Watch It Fall” and described him as “an engaging storyteller (a la Jason Mraz) with a keen eye for character.” His song “It’s Only Love” is in a new Universal studios film starring Sharon Stone called “All I Wish.”

Joseph Eid has been writing poetry and dreaming of a career in the arts as long as he can remember. He grew up mostly in the suburbs of New York. Raised in a strict and traditional home, the arts were only supported as a hobby and never as a career. During his college years, Eid studied psychology and pre-med. After his first semester at med school, his dream got too big to hold and Eid made the bold choice of dropping out to move to New York City to pursue music.

While in New York, Joseph Eid picked up a guitar, joined a band, and the songs poured out of him like rain. His journey then led to Los Angeles where he started playing regularly at open mic nights and showcases. Shortly after, he began working with world-renowned guitarist/songwriter, David Lamar, honing his songwriting at weekly showcases at the Stone Bar. This lead him to write dozens of new songs as well as record a debut EP, Cardiac Output, followed by a full-length LP, Human.

Known as a dynamic solo performer, Joseph Eid has brought his one-man live show to many of Los Angeles’ premiere music venues. He has toured regionally as well as nationally and has also enjoyed playing regular house concerts and corporate events. You can catch him every Monday at his current residency in downtown los angles at Bar Mattachine where he performs and hosts a singer songwriter showcase weekly.
