About

Josh started playing guitar at 15 after getting tired of opera singing and pretending to be able to play piano. Some would say this was a major turning point in his life, marking a transition from socially inept teen into the man he would later become. Such people are prone to hyperbole and exaggeration however.

After an initial period of time writing maudlin songs about how hard it is to be a first world teenager and cack handed attempts at political revolution stirring, Josh finally settled into writing songs more likely  to provoke some kind of genuine praise than outbreaks of awkward peering around rooms. This period also marked his foray into the world of theoretical physics at the University of Nottingham. During this time he also formed and sang as part of the band “Banshee Boardwalk” whose short lived yet critically acclaimed career (“Notts Got Talent Runners Up 2012”) allowed him to develop his song writing further along with his stage presence.

Towards the end of his time at the University of Nottingham Josh found himself playing gigs far more regularly around the city, at events such as The Secret Policeman’s Ball for the Amnesty society and a number of other smaller gigs at bars and pubs. This culminated in him being selected to support Nina Nesbitt at the Camden Barfly in June 2013. This gig marked the end of his time at the University of Nottingham and the beginning of his life as a postgraduate.

Josh now spends his time playing gigs around London, recording iPad music and studying in order to become a professional mathematician of the weather. He can also be found writing pretentious prose about himself in the third person.
