Joseph of Mercury Announces Debut Self-Titled EP

Toronto artist Joseph of Mercury, the moniker of songwriter/producer Joseph W. Salusbury, announces the release of his debut self-titled EP with a special film noir stripped down rendition of his single “Without Words.” Filmed & recorded at Union Sound Company studios in Toronto this past spring, the video presents an intimate portrait of the artist, showcasing the raw, true quality of Joseph’s deep baritone.

Joseph first debuted earlier this year with early cuts “Without Words,” “Young Thing” and “Find You Inside.”

The crooner’s deep baritone and melancholic, heart rending synth pop is a glorious slow burn that recalls a wide range of influences, from David Bowie and Elvis Presley, to Future Islands and Lower Dens.

Before the project’s recent start, Salusbury earned a bevy of songwriting and production credits, including co-writes on Majid Jordan’s “Something About You” and Illangelo’s “Your Future’s Not Mine,” as well as producing the vocals on Nelly Furtado & Blood Orange’s cassette collaboration “Hadron Collider.”
