From his Gospel roots, music and faith has always been Joseff's passion and drive to succeed as a professional performer and recording artist. Joseff McKenneth Goodwin, born September 14, was raised in the small city of Santee, South Carolina by his then-single mother and three sisters. Joseff gained a special interest for singing at a very early age! At the age of 16, on a mission to perfect his craft, he began singing for school, church, weddings, and many community service events. Very quickly other performing opportunities presented themselves.
In 2007, while enrolled in Claflin University's music program in South Carolina, Joseff opened for R&B/Soul sensation Dave Hollister, Gospel recording artists William Murphy III, Keith “Wonderboy” Johnson, and Byron Cage. That same year, he was a finalist on MTV’s 4th season of P. Diddy’s “Making the Band”. In 2008, Joseff shared the stage with jazz/gospel artist Kim Burrell. He, then continued his music studies at New York University until 2009. He made his Off-Broadway debut in February 2011.
His very first recording project was released June 2012 and is available for free download (see MUSIC section). Music critics have described him as one of the most unique, fresh and thrilling new artists to look out for. With his silky, rich, and vibrant voice, he riffs sensuously on songs with a range, an edge, a beauty and a commanding dignity not seen since the glory days of soulful pop and r&b. If Joseff is indeed headed for stardom, his music is an exciting preview of coming attractions! He is currently performing, writing, producing, and recording for future projects!
JOSEFF is currently performing select dates with the Head Over Heels/Project Madison Band for private corporate/wedding events throughout the New York City area.
