Joseph Arthur: The Graduation Ceremony

"The Graduation Ceremony" is Joseph Arthur’s first solo CD in five years. The singer-songwriter – and noted painter – has crafted a recording that is a soothing series of reflections on a break-up a year after it ended. Arthur sings with emotional intensity and honesty. Backed by Jim Keltner on drums and co-produced by John Alagia, the CD traces a romance but leaves listeners with quiet hope.
