Joseph Israel and the Jerusalem Band
Joseph Israel is one of those unique individuals whose natural talents and spiritual calling have merged into a music that is as thought provoking as it is inspiring. What I share with my audience is to draw everyone closer to the source of truththat we are all brothers and sisters and that division and lies cannot stand. The name Israel is a reflection that defines Josephs striving for the blessings of the Almighty Yahweh. This is the name intended for all peoples, tribes and tongues that love the Most High and love their neighbor. These are the teachings of Yahshua the messiah. We are all one family.
A prolific songwriter Joseph makes music that reflects his own life experience and inspiration from his environment. For songwriting, I really just let it come to me, so Ill go through a time period where maybe I will write a bunch of songs and then go through maybe just write one song a week or a month and then write ten songs in one day or something. I may get ideas for several songs in a couple days. So I just vibe it,whenever the spirit moves me. A lot of times it starts with the guitar riff, I will play something on the guitar and it moves my heart and then there is something I have thought about or something I have seen in the world, or something I have experienced in my life, I will start to sing about and next thing you know, its a tune. Thats really how Take Action came about. It just came like a natural thing so that is how I feel good songs are written, when they are not forced not even thought about too much.
After so many years of working in the music business, touring and recording, Joseph has adapted quite well to the different aspects of life as a musician. He illustrates the essence of his life as a touring musician stating: The difference between being on tour and being at home its like two different worlds. You just enter a different mode. I love being on the road and meeting new people every day and being in that new town, it keeps everything fresh. You never know what to expect so you just live in the moment, and I love to live in the moment to be really focused on what I am doing. I just make sure I get the healthy food and have healthy thoughts and love my neighbor and be good to everybody and the main thing is just to connect with new people all over.
