With law school books full of song lyrics, it was evident at graduation that Joseph Nevels (fka JSPH) always had an affinity for music. He is an amazing upcoming artist that is currently based in the LA area.
When Pharrell co-signed his first single it only propelled him to continue making rhythm soaked tracks. NPR Music quickly showed support and said he, “fits seamlessly into the world of D’ Angelo, Frank Ocean, and James Blake.”
Others soon caught on and he gained editorial playlist and press love from Fresh Finds, Spotify’s New Music Friday, Beats1 OTHERtone, KCRW and Newsweek Magazine.
Naturally the sync world followed as he landed with music placements on On My Block (Netflix), Queen Sugar (Oprah Network), and Wuthering High, it’s no coincidence that he’s gained millions of streams as an independent artist.
His newest work is his most raw and vulnerable yet. So much so that he brought back the vowels and is releasing it under his full name. The song is called “Safe” and when we listened to the track we love every second from beginning to end. His vocals have a relaxing feel that brings us to a place of comfort. The production isn’t too complex, but everything fits together so well that it is extremely satisfying and complements Joseph’s vocals well. Check out the track below.

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
