Joe Mulherin (born June 4, 1992), better known his stage name Nothing,Nowhere (stylized as nothing,nowhere.), is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer.[3]

While the music composed by Mulherin is entirely written, produced and performed by Mulherin, he maintains a group of musicians which consist of friends that perform with him for live shows under the nothing,nowhere. name. The band has toured as a supporting act for Real Friends, Tiny Moving Parts, Thrice and La Dispute on multiple tours.


In 2015, Mulherin began uploading songs on SoundCloud under the name nothing,nowhere.[3] In June of that year, he released his debut album titled the nothing,nowhere. LP onto Bandcamp. After releasing two EPs, Bummer, and Who Are You, featuring Austrian producer Oilcolor,[4] on October 20, 2017, he released his commercial debut, Reaper, an album of guitar-based emo rap that the New York Times called "one of the most promising pop albums of the year."[3] He produced the album with Erik Ron and Jay Vee.[3] The track "Hopes Up" features vocals from Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional,[4][5] and the track "REM" features Delaware rapper Lil West.[6][7] New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica listed Reaper as his #1 album of 2017.[8]

On February 16, 2018, it was confirmed that Mulherin had signed to Fueled By Ramen as he released a new music video for his song "Ruiner", the title track for his upcoming album of the same name, which was released on April 13, 2018.[9]

From October 19 to November 9, 2018, nothing,nowhere. will be on tour in Europe.[9]

Personal life and activism[edit]

Mulherin was raised in Foxborough, Massachusetts, and spent summers in Hyde Park, Vermont.[3] He attended Igo Elementary School and Ahern Middle School.[10] Afterwards, he went to Foxborough High School where he studied computer-based design.[11]

Mulherin has never used alcohol, cigarettes or other recreational drugs, and in his freshman year of high school, he became vegan straight edge.[3][10]

Before creating music, Mulherin had an interest in filmmaking. He attended film school at Burlington College in Vermont and while in college, Mulherin co-created the short film Watcher which won a prize at the Vermont International Film Festival.[11] In 2013, he participated in a contest by the organization Creative Mind Group at the 66th Cannes Film Festival in France, shooting, directing and co-editing the film One Day which received three awards.[10]
