Joseph Lanyo

Afrobeat Music Artist
Ohio, USA

Current Score: ★★☆☆☆ ☆☆


From Togo to the United States, Joseph Lanyo is an artist that has truly stayed true to his roots. Although surrounded by western culture from the age of fourteen, his music is embedded in heritage, with his collation of Afrobeat and Afro Gospel being a sonic reflection of the rhythm and melodies of his people from across the Atlantic ocean. Influenced by the likes of Burna Boy, Mr. Eazi, and Timaya, Joseph feels that the African-influenced nature of his music is seamlessly ingrained in him. His music pivots around African rhythms that are laced with beautifully soulful choral arrangements and lyricism, while orbiting around his passionate worship of God. Joseph’s sound is a feel-good frenzy of all the elements that have made Afrobeats the rhythmically superb genre that is appreciated across the globe. Growing up in Togo, Joseph Lanyo spoke both his native tongue of Ewe and French as a second language. However, it was music that Joseph was always the most fluent and eloquent in, with his love for the art form being unwavering for as long as he can remember. From his earliest memory of performing ' Le Rocher' at his school at the age of nine, to his earliest memories of being on stage and experiencing true crowd energy for the first time, Joseph always knew that music was his true calling. Since these influential early days, Joseph Lanyo has been involved in both school and church choirs, leading him to pursue a journey in vocal performance after his graduation. Although still in the infancy of his career, this new world of music production and recording fills Joseph with excitement, allowing unadulterated expression of his truest self, real emotions, and a connection to the world around him. Telling the story of our creator is also of the utmost importance to Joseph. For him, there was no other way nor any other subject that he could think to better focus on at the beginning of his career in music. His existence, including this potential-filled career, is because of God, and for this -- he is beyond thankful. Ultimately, Joseph Lanyo aims to make music that people can relate to, through a fusion of lyrics that uplift, and beats that get people moving. By promoting a genre of music that reflects his devoted appreciation of God, Joseph can carry on showing his thanks to the man above whilst forging his own path to musical greatness.
