We’re all for bands inventing their own genres to describe their music. We’re a broad church here at FFS – ‘why not?’ we say. And that’s why we’re throwing our weight behind Joseph Marlowe, who have decided their music is party folk. Joseph Marlowe were formally called Paper Maps and are from Nashville, Tennessee. They say their stated aim is to “not only have a fantastic time making and playing music, but also to bring intense joy to everyone who encounters us, our music, or stumbles into a show”. And that’s the kind of ambition we like.
