Music is a necessary form of art in society, as it allows people to connect through songs and share their experiences and stories that others can relate to. In addition, it is an essential tool that validates other people, letting them know they are not alone in their struggles. For artist and songwriter Joseph Harmony, pursuing a career in the music industry had always been his calling. Since setting out to build his name in the industry, Harmony has built a platform that lets the underdogs of society feel heard.
Born and raised in Imo State, Nigeria, as Joseph Chibuzor Chima, he would exhibit his musical gifts early at two years old. His family immediately recognized his potential and encouraged him growing up. Like many, Harmony honed his skills in the church, where he joined their choir. Surrounded by a musical environment, he learned how to utilize his voice better. Harmony would continue singing throughout his teens, taking an unconventional route compared to his peers. While many would delve into pop, the young musician took an interest in opera. The often-overlooked genre worked well with him, as it trained his vocal range.
Although he loved music, Harmony’s early career saw him working as an M&A Specialist. While it generated stable income, his heart was still drawn to music. Eventually, he would drop what he was doing and decided to pursue music as a professional career. Harmony migrated to the United States so he could build his platform. Taking the stage name Joseph Harmony, he has been creating music ever since.
Using his background as a chorister and opera singer, Joseph Harmony started working tirelessly to produce music. Despite his love for opera, he delved into the Afrobeats and Afropop genres, where the artist quickly found his niche. As a musician, Harmony combines a vintage sound with modern materials to produce a thrilling effect. With his smoky voice, the artist sings and performs music from the point of view of outcasts and misfits, bringing a new perspective and incisive wit to his tales of hustles and relationships.
“I’ve always wanted to be known by my music and business skill sets,” Harmony shared, “Music, most especially, is what gets me through most of my days. I’ve been a singer and entertainer from the age of two.”
Since pursuing music professionally, Joseph Harmony has quickly risen in the industry, releasing tracks left and right. In the past two years, he has been releasing singles that have been streamed thousands of times. His latest track, “MONEY,” has been attracting listeners familiar with the Afrobeats genre and new listeners. Harmony’s endeavors have also led him to the Nigerian-American record label TOF Entertainments, where he quickly rose to the Executive Producer role.
Although he has been busy behind the scenes, Joseph Harmony is excited to announce the release of his EP For4 on the 22nd of October 2021. After only releasing singles, fans of the Afrobeat artist will finally get a collection of his works. The EP is set to be the first of many albums to come as Harmony strives to create works that can impact society.
“I plan on making a song that will touch the lives of everyone,” he explained, “A song that will keep people entertained.”Learn more about Joseph Harmony by visiting his official website. Follow him on Instagram for the latest updates on his track releases.
