Come To Where I’m From
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.

this beautiful record is further proof that the singer-songwriter is alive and inspired .
