NASHVILLE, TENN. (April 19th, 2024) – Joseph Habedank, singer-songwriter, two-time GRAMMY® nominee, three-time GMA Dove Award winner, and six-time fan-voted Soloist of the Year, is releasing his musical memoir, autobiography. Taking listeners on a soulful journey, autobiography offers a raw and honest portrayal of pain, struggles, and addiction countered with forgiveness, redemption, and the power of the cross. Listen Here.

autobiography, a 12-track album,features a collection of emotionally charged tracks such as the previously released, critically-praised single, “the basement,” that explores Joseph’s 10 years of sobriety and his transformation from pain into purpose and darkness into light. Highlight tracks “tell the devil,” “going with Jesus” (featuring award-winning producer and pianist Bernie Herms), and “Jesus walked in” (featuring NBC’s The Voice-winner Chris Blue) evidence Joseph’s tremendous artistic and songwriting growth over the years, with each song offering a glimpse into the triumphs and trials that have shaped his life, recovery, and faith. 

“This album is the story of my life,” Joseph stated, “but it’s also the story of all Jesus has done in my life. In writing this record, I found myself going back to some of my earliest memories and seeing His hand in the heartbreak, His mercy in the midnight, and the joy that can only be experienced in Him. Because of that, there was no better way to open the record but with "worthy," and to begin by giving honor and overwhelming gratitude for who Jesus is in my autobiography.”

“When Joseph talked to us about this project, I have to admit I was a little uncertain, not for any certain reason, I was just questioning how he would tell his story in song,” states Dusty Wells, A&R director for Daywind Records. “After several months of listening to the sharing of his heart and the songs that Joseph has recorded, I am so moved, touched, and challenged by this project, and I cannot wait for people to hear the "autobiography" of Joseph Habedank. This project is truly a captivating journey through raw emotion and his own personal reflection and growth, inviting his listeners to join in on the musical intimate storytelling of his journey and life in his songs. I am so proud of Joseph, and we are thrilled to be walking alongside him in helping get this music out to the many who need to hear his story.”

Joseph’s new album, autobiography, is now available on all streaming platforms and digital retailers today, April 19th. For more information about Joseph Habedank, his music, and upcoming tour dates visit
