Finding the strength and determination to confront harrowing emotional obstacles and pain isn’t always an effortless process for many people. But once they muster the courage to stop hiding from their pain, they can stand up and realize that they’ve always been enough. Embracing that bravery, particularly as they start rebuilding personal relationships, is a powerful ideology of versatile singer-songwriter, Joseph Roberts, who performs under the stage name, Painted into Things. The Los Angeles-based musician recently released his latest commanding pop-rock single, ‘Something Beautiful Won’t Come Out,’ which helps prove once again that he’s an artist with something important to say about embodying the will to survive.
Taking vocal and instrumentation influences from such artists as James Taylor, Michael Franks, The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Smiths and The Sundays, Roberts thrives on crafting musical journeys that explore examining memories, particularly accepting love and its impact on people’s lives.

Roberts’ sentimental vocals throughout his new single are driven by his soulful acoustic guitar and keyboards. The deeply passionate, inspirational and riveting lyrics and instrumentation that are featured on ‘Something Beautiful Won’t Come Out’ have a mesmerizing quality to them that effortlessly transcend the chaotic nature of relationships, and people’s overall lives.
