Joselyn & Don
Joselyn & Don explore the crossroads of modern folk and soul through evocative songs planted firmly in American roots.
Joselyn Wilkinson and Don Barrozo, both Montana natives, met in Los Angeles in the early 2000’s while jamming in the Venice arts community, and soon learned they were soulmates. After years of performing in separate projects and raising a family, they found a new musical identity working together.
Joselyn & Don explore the crossroads of modern folk and soul through evocative songs planted firmly in American roots. Their debut album, “Soar,” takes the listener on an emotional journey through innocence lost to wisdom, and dreams deferred for something better. Joselyn’s soulful voice recalls both Laura Nyro’s soaring tones and Emmylou Harris’ country folk, while Don’s guitars play duet partner, at turns embodying outlaw twang, plaintive blues, and muscular rock. The acoustic framework of the music on “Soar” is enhanced with lush sonic textures and unexpected instrumentation, bringing to mind the fluid genre-hopping of artists like Yola and Michael Kiwanuka.
