Soul Sisters Podcast: Joseph Explains How Three Sisters Formed One Perfect Harmony

Joseph

Natalie Closner was a young musician trying to make it as a solo act, performing in bars and restaurants (whoever would take her) across the country, when a friend called her out for trying to sell music she herself didn't believe in. She almost immediately thought of her two twin sisters back home in Oregon -- Meegan and Allie -- whom she knew could sing, mostly from their occasional serenading of Rascal Flatts around the kitchen.

"It occurred to me as the most natural thing to do to just text Meegan and Allie and be like, 'Hey, you wanna be in a band with me?'" Closner recalls on this episode of Soul Sisters, and hence the band called Joseph was born.

Gearing up for the release of their first album on a label, with the emotionally evocative title I'm Alone, No You're Not, the Closner sisters tell us how they've quickly risen from family act to performing at venues like Radio City Music Hall, and continue to woo fans across the globe with stunning new tracks like "SOS (Overboard)," which they perform in-studio at the end of this conversation.
