Hello! Nice to meet you. As my URL indicates, I am the website of Joseph VanBuren. While he is busy doing awesome things with words and sounds, I am happy to provide you with the information you seek and probably some stuff you never knew. Yay life.


Obligatory professional third-person blurb (with interactive links!):


Joseph VanBuren is an author and writer, music artist, horror lover, student, survivor, and the scrambled brains behind Sykophunk Productions. His poetry and fiction have been published in Confluence, Ink Cloud, and the anthology Life on a Tightrope; he has written, performed, and/or produced hundreds of globally distributed songs; opened up for national acts such as Rehab, Anybody Killa, Liquid Assassin, Razakel, Lil Wyte, Scum, and 2 Live Crew; and had one of his tracks played on The Colbert Report.
Spawned from the Hudson Valley, New York, he now studies English and Psychology in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he lives with his beloved fiancée and adorably neurotic dog. His current projects include getting a bachelor’s degree and creating a multi-media post-apocalyptic horror experience, beginning with his upcoming poetry chapbook + soundtrack, Mask: Shadow, to be released on Halloween 2017.
