Joseph Arthur - STOP/WATCH

It wouldn’t be wise to cross Joseph Arthur. The gravel-voiced folk-rock singer shows off his best snarl in this rendition of his foreboding single “Travel as Equals,” from his recently released double album Redemption City. Staring down the camera as his brooding guitar colors the edges of his speak-singing, Arthur recites his lyrics like a rushed prayer without falter in 60 seconds, casting new light on lines like “You can’t be in greater comfort/ As my pain prevents your fall.”
