Josephine's lineup includes former members of Aerial Love Feed, Pettycoat and Violator. Some of the music influencing Josephine includes My Bloody Valentine, Joy Division, Slowdive and the Cure. All members having played together in Violator, the all female Depeche Mode cover band from NYC, decided in July of 2008 to form an original band. The band decided to name the project after the late Josephine Rubino, mother of the band's singer/guitarist, Xtina (Christina Rubino). Both haunted and inspired by her memory, the band writes beautifully anguished songs wrought from the heart and ether. Native Brooklynite Xtina fronts the band singing with her signature pained rasp. Delware's Tracy Thompkins' skillful drumming and razor sharp timing drive the rhythm. On the bass is New Orleans' Leigh Regan whose in the pocket playing infiltrates the low end with a heaviness and sensitivity that completes the overall sound of Josephine.
