For years Joseph has been a radio disc jockey, and shares a recently rekindled love for broadcasting online. He worked at WMMT FM 88.7 in Whitesburg, KY from 2001-2008. There he hosted a Friday morning ‘wake-up’ show called ‘Crossroads,’ and had a blast! Also while working at the station, he produced and created “Switchback Radio Podcast,” the official podcast of the off-Broadway theatrical troupe Blue Man Group.
While doing podcasts and live FM radio, Joseph also founded an online radio station in the mid 2000's called Bounce Radio. The concept was based off an actual radio platform, with rotating DJ’s and live on-air talent. The station since 2008 has gone through multiple owners, but is still very active and streaming today! Today, Joseph is a voice talent and on-air personality on many online social media platforms, predominantly on PopXcast.com, at POPX.LIVE.
Originating from an Appalachian musical family, and learning to play the piano at age 6, Joseph gave his first public performance at age 14 with his southern gospel family, and by age 16 had appeared on television regularly at WLJC-TV in Beattyville, KY. His musical ability grown with exposure to culture and world music and by age 21 released his first solo album called "Simple Faith." Four albums later, and a digital license contract, Joseph's music can be found worldwide on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Spotify. For more music visit josephburke.com.
I was always captivated by comic books, and reading them as a child. Growing up in rural Kentucky in the early 1980's, comics became a way of not only escape, but inspiration to pick up a pencil and paper to draw. I began drawing at a very young age in elementary school, and my skills were always widely used around campus. As I moved into college, it was evident that my drawing skills were becoming more and more sharpened. I began dabbling in 2D digital drawing on old Wacom tablets from the mid 2004. The invention of the iPad has allowed my mind to create vivid and colorful artworks of some of my most beloved icons from my childhood and today.
All of my art is drawn on a 12.9 inch iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. I can be seen on social streaming platforms like Facebook Live and Instagram Live drawing my creations live on camera before a host of spectators. Recently, my artworks have been sold in local comic book and novelty shops around Orlando metro area. My hope is to increase my library of works and be able to attend local Cons to sell and distribute my artwork.
Aside from broadcasting, Joseph is a local pop culture artist and painter, whose artworks are featured in local comic book shops in and around Central Florida. To view his works, visit josephburkearts.com.
