Joey Dosik: “Game Winner”

By: Jack Anderson

All this week, Song of the Day exclusively brings you artists playing SXSW 2018 (official and unofficial) 

Let’s face it. SXSW is certifiably not known as “Soul By Soul West”, and justifiably so – but fortunately for those who scour the sounds of soul, Joey Dosik is set to dote on local audiences tonight and tomorrow. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dosik seamlessly navigates multiple musical duties as singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, having already collaborated with the likes of Vulfpeck and Miguel Atwood Ferguson. The debut EP Game Winner highlights Dosik’s affinity for surreal and smooth retro-soul vocals that not only hearken back to the likes of Marvin Gaye and others but indeed inspire a sound of its own. Joey Dosik performs tonight at the Barracuda Backyard for Secretly Showcase and tomorrow afternoon – 2pm at Scoot Inn for the the Relix Brooklyn Bowl Showcase. Don’t tease yourself any longer – take a listen to the title track from Dosik’s latest offering – “Game Winner” and you’ll hear just how much soul lies nary dormant in this West Coast common day crooner.

Joey Dosik SXSW Dates
Thursday, 3/15 || Secretly Showcase @ Barracuda **
Friday, 3/16 || Relix Brooklyn Bowl Showcase @ Scoot Inn

Fogwood: “The Mystic Valley”

Yesterday was the summer solstice, not that you’d be able to tell with how grey and rainy it was. So to complement this week’s inclement weather, we’re getting a little foggy this Friday. And that’s on behalf of Fogwood. Down to three members from the original four we heard on Fogwood’s eponymous 2022 debut, this […]

Subpar Snatch: “Juicy Booty”

In the casual hookup community, even lovers with the highest body counts (especially those outside cis-hetero norms) might agree; it’s not size, shape, presence, or lack of specific anatomical features that make the biggest impression after the act. No, the quality of your “bits” may actually come second to a sense of enthusiasm when turning […]

Daniel Fears: “Home” (Live from the Draylon Mason Music Studio)

Happy Juneteenth! While it’s now a national holiday, it’s always been a celebration here in Texas, where historically Black hubs like Houston were notified of the Emancipation Proclamation and the Civil War’s end later than the rest of the states. And it’s Houston that gave us our July 2021 Artist of the Month Daniel Fears. […]

Luke Smith: “Jimmy”

We’re right at Pride Month’s midpoint, so just as a refresher: no matter how you identify, be proud of yourself! At the same time, it’s worth acknowledging our place in a progressive city, a quarter century into the 21st, because not every Queer person’s been blessed with those privileges; more often than not, it’s a […]

Alexi 8bit: “You Don’t Have to Be Alone Anymore”

In the world of singers, acting cutesy doesn’t necessarily negate sophistication. Like, we’ve seen a lot of success in going north of mere infantile novelty and co-opting that puppy love naivety in a way that’s accessible to all age groups. And while we can point to a major movement of such with jazz-pop hits from […]

Molecular Steve: “Wolfman”

Depending on who you ask – a coworker, a friend, or a family member – they’ll all have slightly different takes on your “character” based on previous interactions and observations. But what about those parts of our identities that never reach the surface? Those personality traits that stay buried deep within us? Well, we won’t […]

The Wild Kindness: “No One Belongs Here More Than You”

Random acts of kindness: we can’t recommend ’em enough. Because it’s those little gestures you catch in the wild that help us make new connections (no matter how brief or passing), break past malaise and monotony, and recognize the world as a more compassionate place. And new connections are also a key component to what […]

Mark Hallman: “Bright Star”

When you’ve spent decades making great records for other people, you’ve got all the tools to do it on your own, right? Yeah, although producers often get relegated to a “man behind the curtain” position for other artists’ critical success, at the end of the day they’re some of the strongest shapers of sound. Take […]
