    Joseph Macwan...... and his band 'Out of Karma are one of the UK's most exciting and unique contemporary musical talents. Their sound, whilst difficult to define, will suck you straight in. Joseph is a songwriter who sings with an amazing vocal style, that will pierce you and then wrap you up in velvet ! Chopping the guitar with mesmerising songs the melodies and lyrics will transport you to an enraptured consciousness. The songs speak of Love, Revolution, The conservations of War, Freedom, and GOD. You have not heard anything like it. It is unique. .... ....The music has gravity and the songs reflect the spirituality and life at the centre of the music. .... ....Influences on the ......Joseph Macwan...... musical style are many and far reaching from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Marvin Gaye, Udit Narayan, Mohamed Rafi and Lata Mangesh Kar, Ben Harper, and Rakesh Parmar to name but a few. .... ....The band represents the all encompassing "Out of Karma" experience. The rhythm section of Malcolm D 'sa on drums and and Jacob Bonner on bass providing the backbone to the music the crazy guitar licks of Chris Topham and the percussive nuances of Ameer aka Bongoman the eclectic souls have united to form a living whole. The fan base is growing all the time. From across the midlands and as far a field as Trinidad and Tobago, and New Zealand. The music is played on BBC radio, as well as a succession of other independent radio stations throughout the UK, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. ......Joseph Macwan...... has performed at various venues across the UK, including the Hard Rock Cafe, Borderline, The Bar Fly, Regents Park, and Cafe de Paris. .... ..........Joseph Macwan...... and his band are set to release their forthcoming single Hero.

.. Joseph Macwan and his band 'Out of Karma are one of the UK's most exciting and unique contemporary musical talents. Their sound, whilst difficult to define, will suck you straight in. Joseph is a songwriter who sings with an amazing vocal style, that will pierce you and then wrap you up in velvet ! Chopping the guitar with mesmerising songs the melodies and lyrics will transport you to an enraptured consciousness. The songs speak of Love, Revolution, The conservations of War, Freedom, and GOD. You have not heard anything like it. It is unique. ..

The music has gravity and the songs reflect the spirituality and life at the centre of the music.

Influences on the Joseph Macwan musical style are many and far reaching from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Marvin Gaye, Udit Narayan, Mohamed Rafi and Lata Mangesh Kar, Ben Harper, and Rakesh Parmar to name but a few.

The band represents the all encompassing "Out of Karma" experience. The rhythm section of Malcolm D 'sa on drums and and Jacob Bonner on bass providing the backbone to the music the crazy guitar licks of Chris Topham and the percussive nuances of Ameer aka Bongoman the eclectic souls have united to form a living whole. The fan base is growing all the time. From across the midlands and as far a field as Trinidad and Tobago, and New Zealand. The music is played on BBC radio, as well as a succession of other independent radio stations throughout the UK, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. Joseph Macwan has performed at various venues across the UK, including the Hard Rock Cafe, Borderline, The Bar Fly, Regents Park, and Cafe de Paris.

Joseph Macwan and his band are set to release their forthcoming single Hero. They will appear on the new series of Sky TV's live music show The Headliners, performing the new single Hero. They are currently in the studio and have just completed their new EP.


Like a bullet you pierce my armour, then your love it lifts me Out of Karma.
