Joseph is a band of three sisters from the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

“Hauntingly beautiful, incredibly inspired sounds.” – Darling magazine.

Expect honest words and genetically perfected harmonies.



Layering accordion, ukulele, guitar, and percussion Oregon native Chris Ward slowly sculpted a sound praised for its distinct old world flavor and pop sensibilities. What began as a recording project evolved into a powerful live act complete with intoxicating melodies and harmonies that ebb and flow between antiquated and contemporary instrumentation.

Violins, piano, and acoustic guitar share the same unique sonic space as heavy bass, sampled organ, and a full drum kit. The music of Yaquina Bay has been compared to The Decemberists, Blind Pilot, and A Hawk and a Hacksaw. It is a sound that is both nostalgic and fresh, familiar and new.
