Maspeth is the moniker for the solo songwriting work of Knoxville artist Joseph Gillenwater. His performances are quiet and minimal, using just a voice and a tiny toy-like acoustic guitar. With these humble implements Maspeth projects a powerful stage presence; instantly bringing even the noisiest rock-club crowd to a quick, silent focus on his gently delivered, spare and sharply beautiful songs.

“Barely heard. Moved away, came back, later. Newtown, new found. Old-dug, from most stuck, moved on past mumbles to melody’s  strong solace & chanced remedy. ‘Take a cup, for cup’s sake’, say some. Simple guitar in song carrying on openly past the rank—ready to close in on the rudiments of yonder.”
