#393: Joseph Coward - The World Famous Joseph Coward

Drawn to London at an early age, 22 year old Joseph Coward’s soul intention in life is “to be really honest”, an aspect of his persona that runs rampant throughout the course of his debut album, the ironically titled The World Famous Joseph Coward. Interestingly enough, whilst the record’s lyrical candour gives it an edge over its contemporaries, the fact that Coward isn’t afraid to make his influences be known detracts from the album slightly, taking with it some of the personality that would make it a truly accomplished debut.
