Joji (real name George Miller) is back again to bring us another powerful love ballad, "Sanctuary," out now on 88rising.
Sticking to his iconic sound, Joji continues to bring a voice to the lovesick and creates a romantic, futuristic and utopian landscape with “Sanctuary.” His sound blends together electronic downtempo, folk, and soulful R&B. This melancholic energy paired with his easy to relate to lyrics has earned Joji over 850 million streams on his debut studio album BALLADS 1, as well as having his "SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK" single certified gold.
The Japanese-born singer says many of his songs are inspired by his time living in Osaka. "Sanctuary" in specific, also draws inspiration from '80s icons like Phil Collins and American rock band Journey. Despite these influences, Joji is a true visionary himself and has had a widespread impact online. His now-retired internet personality Filthy Frank heavily influenced the direction of internet and meme culture during his time on YouTube. Joji's ability to lead paired with his endless creativity has now translated over to his passion for music.
