Montana natives Joselyn & Don's intoxicating music is a walk through mountain wildflowers and Southern California Joshua trees. The duo's 2020 debut album "Soar" and 2022 EP "Seeds & Bones" have been warmly received by critics and added to over 200 independent radio stations worldwide, reaching number 5 on Roots Music Report's Americana Album Chart and the Top 100 of the Americana Music Association's album chart. Respected publications like Americana UK, Twangville, Americana Highways and others praise Joselyn Wilkinson's "one-of-a-kind voice," Don Barrozo's "fluid guitar work" and the "rich, lyrical, wild, spiritual imagery" of their music.

Joselyn & Don have toured venues throughout the West (Hotel Cafe, Lost Chord Guitars, The Lost Church, Grand Annex, Nakano Theater) and supported notable artists including Chris Pierce, Chris Stills (with Lukas Nelson), Willie Watson, Lauren Monroe (with Rick Allen) and Jess Williamson. Recently, they appeared on Prairie Public Radio's The Great American Folk Show and were featured artists at the FAR-West folk conference in Los Angeles.

Joselyn is also the founder of legendary women's global fusion band, ADAAWE, who toured extensively, released two albums and appeared with luminaries such as Stevie Wonder and Leanne Rimes. In the mid-2000s, Joselyn released two solo albums and toured with her band Wild Roots. Don, a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer with many album credits, also serves as film editor for television's long-running animated series "The Simpsons."

Joselyn & Don's live arrangements feature finger-picked guitar, tenor ukulele, and percussion, allowing Joselyn's voice to shine through with strength and vulnerability, joined by Barrozo's powerful harmonies. The duo sees their music as a powerful way to share truth, build community and connect with audiences.

Joselyn & Don are available for concerts, festivals and workshops for 2024-25 as a duo or four-piece (with bass and drums). They can be booked as a featured act or included on a double bill, and are perfect for intimate venues and outdoor events. Their creative group songwriting workshops are a community engagement highlight.


SoarPraise for Joselyn & Don's debut album Soar

Their debut album, Soar, finds [Joselyn & Don] exploring country roots, folk, and American soul. Joselyn's sultry vocals lock you in from the very first track.
- Americana Rhythm Music Magazine

The production on the ten tracks is crystal clear and highlights the beautiful vocal of Joselyn as she displays gentle restraint and powerful delivery...A love of nature and keeping life in balance runs through these songs...
- Lonesome Highway Magazine

That sensitivity to the environment informs “Storm” and other songs on “Soar,” just as their rhythmic buoyancy tinges them with hope.
