All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Pianist William Joseph's debut album, Within mixes instrumental pop, classical compositions, and reworked rock tunes into an atmospheric mélange that seems to be aimed at a middle ground between classical and new age. Most likely appealing to fans of lite-classical artists such as Josh Groban and Jim Brickman, Within features Joseph at the piano backed by strings both real and synthesized as well as a shiny layer of orchestral and programmed beats all via the production wizardry of Grammy winner David Foster. Despite hip crossover attempts with Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" and the soft rock classic "Dust in the Wind," the album works best as a kind of background music as there ...

Despite hip crossover attempts with Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" and the soft rock classic "Dust in the Wind," the album works best as a kind of background music as there isn't much difference between his "pop" tunes and such classical standards as "Ave Maria." A crisp technician, Joseph does display a marked intensity on the title track and that coupled with his darkly handsome, matinee idol looks should garner him more interest than this album might have otherwise.

    He's amazing!

    I first heard William in a Clay Aiken concert. He is simply amazing. Hands down. I used to think piano wasn't so great. After listening to his CD, I think piano is really an awesome instrument! William showed me that it takes a lot of talent to play like that. He is a star, in like one in a million! He can bring the house down.

    AMAZING!

    Like everyone else, I first heard William Joseph as the opening act for the Josh Groban concert. But within two minutes of listening to his music, I was hooked. Every track on this cd is absolutely beautiful. He mixes his piano playing with orchestra and sometimes drums, and it sounds amazing all put together. I ecspecially like the songs "Within", "Butterflies and Hurricanes", and of course the remake of Led Zepplin's "Kashmir". This is a wonderful cd, and defenitally worth every penny!

    Amazing

    I saw William Joseph open for Josh Groban and was blown away by his redition of "Kashmir." The cd also features Lucia Micarelli on Violin. She is Josh Groban's lead voilin on tour and wow. But William is just this incredible talent that hasn't been seen in several years. Buy the CD you will not be dissapointed.

    Moved by greatness

    He opened for Josh Groban in Omaha,NE and knew how to handle the piano with the passion of a lover. He's found a new fan in me and I recommend him to anyone interested in great music.

    Overflowing with Talent!!!

    This is an awesome album!! What's amazing is he's as great in person as he is on the album. Saw him in Kansas City with Josh Groban and he rocked the crowd. Can't wait to see him again!! He's got a fan in me.
