Singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur has always followed an unconventional career path: The Grammy-nominated performer long ago began prolifically self-releasing his albums, many of which bear his own paintings as cover art. Click the link above to hear Arthur perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Arthur's music has been compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen and Joe Henry, and he's toured with Tracy Chapman and Ben Harper, among others. His new album, Temporary People, followed a string of unpredictable EPs.
