About Joseph Konty

Joseph Konty Up-and-coming recording artist Joseph Konty has been described in many lights. To fit him well, we chose trendy, hip, modern, contemporary, fresh, soulful, R&B and pop. This singer-songwriter is the new wave of music and will be for many years to come with a fresh sound that many have not heard yet. However, while being exposed to something so fresh and so new it is hard to not hear Joseph?s roots. Motown, soul, classic R&B, Marvin Gaye, the East Coast, his southern upbringing?.they all play their part in inspiration. His shows evoke emotion, movement of body and a dose of sensuality. This young man and his group of professional and highly talented musicians do more than just play music, they put on a show. ?Spelled like it sounds: The game of Boggle might be the best vehicle to describe Joseph Konty's music. His sound is the result of taking the genre cubes of soul, funk, R&B, pop, rock and maybe a smaller one of smooth jazz, putting them together in a clear plastic square and shaking vigorously. Song to song, these cubes dictate a controlling mood, but it's Konty's almost precocious lyrics that will spell out his success. Now based in Portland, Konty hails from Texas. In his music, this translates into a hospitality that is welcoming and comforting, some cross between sitting in a rocking chair on a front porch and grooving on a dance floor.? - The Oregonian
