Able Joseph - 'Lonely LA'

  • 2 min read

Telling an intimate story about changing lives and circumstances 'Lonely LA’ proves Able Joseph’s talent for writing heartfelt mid-tempo classics. The song surrounds the listener with sentimental melodies, captivating production and an outro that begs to be sung by a crowd, acapella into the night sky.

Already racking up a legion of followers (over 80,000 on Spotify alone), Able is a stellar talent, signed to Sydney indie label Double Drummer, home to Greta Stanley, Dominic Breen and Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird.

Speaking of the tender meaning behind the new single, Able explained, "There’s a beautiful side to two people having to adjust to life’s curveballs and facing change as a team - be that changing dreams, homes, realities… this isn’t a love song, it’s a relationship song."

He continued, ‘This song is a homage to songwriting. We wanted to keep the structure as simple as possible but still weave in different moments and transitions that take you somewhere unexpected. The outro is a deeply honest conversation between two people and the production reflects that; it’s closer to the mic, more intimate and raw. I’m really proud of the story we tell.’

‘Lonely LA’ follows on from ‘SOLO’ which received a slew of support earlier this year, including Triple J Home and Hosed airplay and Apple playlisting (Amped Up and New In Alternative). He has supported Cousin Tony’s Brand Firebird on tour and his collaborators include UK dance artist GRUM. Together they secured playlisting support on Spotify (Dance Rising, New Music Friday, Trance Mission, Nightrider) and Apple (New In Dance, Trance and Progressive) with over 2 million streams on Spotify and counting.

Able has previously co-written with a stellar list of acts including Jaguar Jonze, Hauskey, Bec Sandridge, Jordie Ireland, Third Party, Yorke, Xavier Dunn, Cyrus, Eliott and Woodes.
