All this week, Song of the Day exclusively brings you artists playing SXSW 2018 (official and unofficial)
Let’s face it. SXSW is certifiably not known as “Soul By Soul West”, and justifiably so – but fortunately for those who scour the sounds of soul, Joey Dosik is set to dote on local audiences tonight and tomorrow. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dosik seamlessly navigates multiple musical duties as singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, having already collaborated with the likes of Vulfpeck and Miguel Atwood Ferguson. The debut EP Game Winner highlights Dosik’s affinity for surreal and smooth retro-soul vocals that not only hearken back to the likes of Marvin Gaye and others but indeed inspire a sound of its own. Joey Dosik performs tonight at the Barracuda Backyard for Secretly Showcase and tomorrow afternoon – 2pm at Scoot Inn for the the Relix Brooklyn Bowl Showcase. Don’t tease yourself any longer – take a listen to the title track from Dosik’s latest offering – “Game Winner” and you’ll hear just how much soul lies nary dormant in this West Coast common day crooner.
