Joey Dosik signs to Secretly Canadian and shares ‘Game Winner’ video

Joey Dosik, praised by Quincy Jones as an ‘Artist To Watch,’ will re-release his debut EP, Game Winner, via Secretly Canadian on February 23rd, 2018. Originally self-released in June 2016, the label will issue a deluxe version of Game Winner with four bonus tracks available digitally for the first time ever. Today, Dosik is pleased to share his new Rob Stenson-directed video for the EP’s minimal and languid title track. “My dad used to say, ‘Sports is a metaphor for life,’” recalls Dosik. “There are many characters in this classic basketball comeback story to to identify with: The Underdog, The Leader, The Bad Guy, The Observer, The Team Player & The Motivator. At first look, the video and song are about basketball; but like Game Winner, a song that holds multiple meanings, the video’s story of The Underdog is universal.”

An inveterate collaborator who has worked extensively with the likes of VulfpeckNikka Costa, and Miguel Atwood Ferguson, Joey is a vital part of an LA scene that updates vintage sounds into a more contemporary context. Touring tirelessly throughout the year, he spent virtually all of 2017 on the road, including tours with Vulfpeck, Lake Street Dive, and his own headlining dates as well. As a passionate fan of basketball and the NBA, he’s even performed for NBA audiences at Madison Square Garden, Staples Center, and other iconic arenas around the nation, singing both the National Anthem and performing during halftime. He’ll play SXSW next year.
