He also lectures in creative writing at Birkbeck College in London.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In 2004, he founded his group, the Spasm Band as a way of putting music to his writings. Three studio albums later, Anthony Joseph has become one of the most prominent faces of the Soul/Funk/Spoken word scenes in France and throughout Europe.</p> <p> His latest album "Rubber Orchestras" was designated as one of the albums of the year 2011 by Les Inrocks, Vibrations Magazine and Liberation.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Anthony Joseph's incandescent poetry has ignited many scenes and festivals. Throughout his touring, he has met and played with many artists, such as Archie Shepp, Joseph Bowie, Keziah Jones, Laurent Garnier, Mop Mop, The Heliocentrics, Jerry Dammers and Meshell N'degeocello.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Check the new video of "Started off as a dancer"</p> <p>  </p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src=";feature=oembed" width="540"></iframe> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>WHO IS MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO ?</strong></u></p> <p> <img alt="Meshell_4__c__charlie_gross_bd" src="">   Meshell Ndegeocello is an American singer-songwriter, rapper, bassist and vocalist.</p> <p> She is considered as one of the creators of the "neo-soul" movement in the 90s with her first album "Plantation Lullabies" (Maverick Records).</p> <p>  </p> <p> She has since released 10 albums, been nominated for 10 Grammy awards, and was No. 3 on the Billboard U.S. top 100 with "Wild Night", her duet with John Mellencamp.

The music on this album should be more electronic than before, with an ethnic vibe , Abstract Funk, Jazz-tinged, rock but remaining "Soulful" thanks to Meshell's bass.  </p> <p> The collaboration between the two artists is going so well that finally  Meshell will not only produce the whole album  but also compose all the tracks on this new album.  It will be for sure  a project of international character, Meshell has  a strong fan base in the United States and England.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> This album will be recorded at the end of April in Paris, with the group that accompanies Meshell on tour.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Participate in this meeting between two of the most creative musicians of the  "soul" scene  and follow closer the recording of this album event.
