Idiomism

Idiomism Independent sounds, lucid impressions.

Joseph Demaree grew up in San Jose CA. Instead of taking that keyboard class he opted for a skateboard. At the age of 14 and after many bails "Flying Dead Skin" would be his first band. Nothing Records, Nothing Everything & Nothing Enterprises would resolve in releasing the music that followed (Ringwurm, Lemming, 1/2 Bastard, Zero My Hero, Your Mother, Stag, Jackalope, Happy About Everything, Emo Summer, The Unit Breed, Sparkle Pony and the Fluffy Cloud, Chu Chi Nut Nut and the Pine Cone Express, The Abominable Snowband). These labels would also release several compilations of Bay Area California bands. With a move to Portland OR, Demaree would start Idiomism Records releasing new music by The Unit Breed, Captain Nowhere, Joseph Demaree and the Broken Windows, Joseph Demaree and the Square Tires.

Mission: To create something beautiful.

The Great Smoking Mirror - Endless Art & Music Tour
The Music and Art of Joseph Demaree

Demaree’s music is a lucid, story driven,stripped down, unique, expression, rooted in rock. With lush guitar sounds and smooth vocal stylings the artist steps out of the way for the song and the story to reflect inspiration within the imagination.

Joseph’s artwork is a colorful capture of landscapes, still life’s, abstractions, and dream oriented paintings in oil, mixed media and pen & Ink. Brought up on the early Surrealists, Skateboarding, Marvel Comics & Punk Rock, Demaree’s current work dives into the now with a firm study of the then. His current interest paints along side Van Gough & Sings along with the Billie Holiday and The Ink Spots.

If needing classification, The Great Smoking Mirror is a Surreal Indie Rock experience.
