Joseph Hylander a songwriter and artist. He writes in the tradition of John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, and Elliott Smith. He was born and raised in Southern California and proud to call Hawthorne, California his home. (Hawthorne = birth place of The Beach Boys). He finds inspiration in ordinary things and can turn the mundane into a more interesting dreamscape. His youth and education was spent touring and in the recording studio trying to perfect the art of writing, arranging, and composing music and since perfection is so often hard to come by he settles for learning and trying to evolve constantly. Joseph picked up the guitar after first hearing The Beatles, "Rubber Soul" at the age of 12 and has now been playing, writing and recording music for over 16 years. When he isn't recording he tries to instill his passion for music in everyone he meets (particularly students). Joseph teaches music lessons in and out of his home studio, "In Orbit Studios" and welcomes meeting new people and sharing different experiences.
