Come To Where I’m From

Joseph Arthur


Released 12 June 2000

In its pursuit of unearthing previously unheard music from the planet’s four corners, Real World has never ignored Western rock and pop. No-one’s disqualified. And in Akron, Ohio, the label (or, rather Peter Gabriel himself) found Joseph Arthur, a singer-songwriter with high-proof creative juices oozing out of every pore.

2000’s ‘Come To Where I’m From’ was his second album for the label. Co-produced by the mighty T-Bone Burnett, it’s a dense, attractively claustrophobic record, full of delightful contradictions: unnerving and reassuring, raw and yet meticulously compiled.

Put simply, Joe’’s sickeningly talented.
The Independent (2000) (UK)

…this beautiful record …is further proof that the singer-songwriter is alive and inspired….
Mojo (2000) (UK)

…(T-Bone Burnett, take a bow) and boasting a subtle, imaginative stylistic mix, Joseph Arthur is an American original and head’n’shoulders above the likes of Beck.
Uncut (2000) (UK)
