Joseph (made up of sisters Allison, Meegan and Natalie Closner) have had an incredible year. They did a North American headline trek and a series of Pacific Northwest dates with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. At Bonnaroo, Joseph joined Chance the Rapper and others during the festival’s signature event, the Superjam. I’m Alone, No You’re Not spent two weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and was voted as one of 2016’s top albums by NPR listeners.
