Influences: Too Many To List

Josh’s music is an original blend of commercial Pop Rock with classical tinges and his unique northern sound is described as being rich with distinctive dark overtones. Alongside promo gigs and acting roles Josh is busy completing his first album, writing and collaborating on new material and projects.

FEELING STRONGER, the album will be released later this year. Throughout 2014 Josh is releasing singles and EP's via his indie label Cloud9Records. THINKING OF YOU TONIGHT was released on Valentines. IN MY HEAD (EP) is his latest release, which is available on iTunes, Amazon and all other major music platforms. As summer approaches Josh will be releasing MY DREAM BABY. This will be followed with BACK TO BED in September.

Josh is independent working with songwriters, musicians and producers. Most recently Josh has been co-writing with Andy Ross (International Songwriter & Mercury Prize nominee). Session musicians include; Simon Moore, Drums (Ruby Turner, ex Ian Brown), Neil Fairclough, Bass Guitar (Queen/Brian May + Adam Lambert) and Roger Hughes, Piano & Keys (Todd Sharpville Band, BB King/Pink & MUJO). Prior to this Josh developed original songs by Matthew Humphrys/Andrew Beverley, Matthew Patchett, Ged McMahon, Ron Walton/Billy Curtis/Derek Griffiths/Bo Walton, Rob Elliott/Tom Simanek and Andrew Neil. In the studio Josh has worked with producers; Andy Ross, Matthew Humphrys, Dylan Charles, Matthew Patchett and Andy Craig.

Cloud9Records' was set up by Josh in 2012 to release his music. Having just turned 16 Josh is looking to collaborate with emerging and established artists, to perform with live musicians in a band and to work on new projects such as a Boyband whilst continuing to develop his own sound. The next step is to work with an experienced Artist Manager who can make things happen and to sign with an established Record Label who will roll out his music and brand.

Josh is very much a live performer and he enjoys nothing more than taking to the stage with an appreciative audience. Next is SoccerSix at LUFC with a host of emerging & established artists. Recently he has performed at the Lancaster Grand Theatre with Paul Akister, Amy-Jo Clough, Mr Zip & Steven Hall; Live On The Square & Wythenshaw Lights Switch On with Imagine FM, Matt Cardle, Ever Young, Renegade Girls, Be Minor, Forbidden Juice, plus other X Factor & BTG finalists Next of Kin & Stavros and Flattley; Vampire Pleasure Beach (Blackpool) with Giles Potter, Re-connected, Olivia Archbold, Distracted, Outspoken and others; Blackpool North Pier with Rock FM at Lord Glitzy’s Variety Performance for the Extraordinary Talented alongside Tyler James & Booty Luv; Adhoc Entertainment Jubilee Event with Ryan Green & Luciee Marie Closier; The Lost Theatre with Dione Bromfield; Famestage Rising Stars Valentines Event with Kimberley Alvord; Live Lounge with Lydia Lucy; Blackpool Variety Show with Sam Callahan; West End Live with the NYMT Leicester Square & Trafalgar Square talking to the stage after Shayne Ward; Mayor’s Remembrance Service/Albert Halls with the Hoover Band (Bolton) plus many more unpublished events.

Josh posts demos on ReverbNation, SoundCloud, YouTube, Facebook and he is active on Twitter, Instagram and other social media networks introducing his music and sharing the journey he is on. Currently writing, co-writing and learning to play the guitar & keyboard Josh has a key player agreement with Vintage Guitars.

Songs include; JUST YOU WAIT, FEELING STRONGER, BACK TO BED, NIGHT TO PARTY, BREAK US IN TWO, THINKING OF YOU TONIGHT, IN MY HEAD, BITTER, PILL, YOU CAN BE MINE, MY DREAM BABY, BREAKING FREE and TIME AND AGAIN.
