The single Freedom Is (2022) is the first collaboration between Josep Siam and music producer Fran Vives. It is a spoken word work that blends the punchy synths of Fran Vives with the organic, nylon-string guitar signature of Josep Siam. The lyrics, with a quality that both comfort and confront the listener, are a personal manifesto about the notion of freedom, perceived as a quest beyond individualism intrinsically tied to social justice.
Single released on July 7, 2022. Recorded at Fran Vives’ Studio (Petaluma, California). Music by Josep Siam and Fran Vives; lyricist Josep Siam; Music Producer Fran Vives; Mixing Engineer Noon Do; Mastering Engineer Francisco Holzmann; Cover Art by Ànnia Miàs.

Josep Siam’s debut EP Inflexions (2021) is a modulation, a change of curvature, and a commitment to an essential part of his life: music and artistic expression. The 5 tracks of this EP showcase an emotionally rich lyricism accompanied by nylon-string guitar loops and solos, and electronic landscapes. Inflexions reveals his musical eclectic character, shaped by a background in classical guitar, a passion for Brazilian music, and a past as a jazz manouche guitarist.
Recorded at Sanctuary Sound Studio (Sebastopol, California). All music written, performed, and produced by Josep Siam, lyrics (except Song of Myself), by Josep Siam. Mix and Master by Matt McDavid. Covert Art by Valeria Duffe. Featuring Aurora M Ricart on voice on I Sing About You.
