Josh started very young with the guitar and fell in love with the music around him; rock, blues, and soul. He has recorded four albums with his latest album, PARISH BLUES, Josh returns to his blues roots where it all began. 

He has played various venues and festivals primarily around Louisiana: in New Orleans - Chickie-Wah-Wah's, Tipitina's, French Quarter Festival, Natchez Blues Festival, Little Walter Festival, Spirit's in Alexandria, LA, May Fest in Lewisville, Revel Fest in Shreveport, and Bailey's On The Square in Marksville. Most recently he played Ouachita Live Music Series/Allen Park– West Monroe, LA. 

Josh and his band will turn any crowd upside down and inside out with their infectious grooves and funky rhythm. He is what you call Original Louisiana Music.
