Joe Huber of .357 Releases “Bury Me Where I Fall”

November 11, 2010 - By Trigger  //  News  //  13 Comments

Joseph Huber, one of the primary songwriters and banjo/fiddle player for the high-octane bluegrass outfit The .357 String Band has released a solo album called Bury Me Where I Fall. This album marks a completely different direction from the punk-inspired string music Joe & .357 are known for, but not in the emphasis on top-notch songwriting. Joe takes a more poetic, Townes Van Zandt approach to the lyrics, and a more artistic approach to the music.

The 1st solo album from .357 String Band’s Joseph Huber reveals a new side; a brooding, & introspective side in the spirit of Townes Van Zandt or Leonard Cohen. Weary & burdened, yet also joyfully defiant. Each song offers a new sound & way of seeing.

The album is available by paypal-ing $12.00 to josephhubermusic at gmail. com. You can also purchase or preview tracks on CD Baby.

  • I haven’t been able to stop listening to Riddler’s Song since I heard it on myspace. I’m excited for this one.


  • Love the Townes influence on this,gonna be on heavy rotation when i get me one. Versatile fella.


  • Mr. Huber will be the guest on Outlaw Radio on Wednesday to talk about the new album. Check it out.


    • Excellent!


    • Nice, that’s very timely. I will have to check this out, I think Joe’s stuff with .357 is just fantastic.


  • This is great news. I’ve been trying to figure out if this album art above is a photo or some of joes artwork.

    Jahshie P- If it works in- I would be interested to hear Joe talk about his paintings.


  • I like what I’ve heard! If it’s artwork, it’s extraordinary. Makes me wonder why there is no banjo. Great blog Triggerman.


  • Sweeet! As much as I love the kick-ass side of .357, Joe’s ballads (Long Put Down That Gospel, The Days Engrave, Stillest Hour) have been some of my favorite tracks. Can’t wait to hear the new songs, but.. no banjo? No shit!?!?


  • It’s also available on iTunes now


  • just got it, listened through a coupla times now and i’m really into it, gonna run for the mountains and get to know it a little better. impressive top to bottom in my opinion, lookin forward to the review.


  • It has banjo on the album just not on the album cover.


    • Yes it does! Better than Before.


  • Wow what a great album. I’ve always known joe’s songwriting was excellent, but he really shined by himself on this one!!
