"Soul is when you take a song and make it a part of you — a part that's so true, so real, people think it must have happened to you. … It's like electricity — we don't really know what it is, do we? But it's a force that can light a room. Soul is like electricity, like a spirit, a drive, a power." - Ray Charles

While retreating to the British Isles during a long, cold winter, Josh's experiences there breathed new life into his spirit and musical soul; walking the grounds of the ancient world of Stonehenge, drinking hand pumped bitter ale in a 300 year old pub in Belfast, standing on the basalt rock formations at Giant's Causeway in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, and wrecking his Toms climbing the ruins of Dunluce Castle where Led Zepplin took their inner album photo for Houses of the Holy.

Inspiration came swiftly and he realized,

"it's not about what you say you're going to do, it's about doing, about making music that matters, touching people's lives in meaningful ways.....it's about what you leave behind."

Josh's music is pure Old School. Old School is an attitude; it’s about doing things the way they’re supposed to be done. And Josh does Funk and Soul, 70's Rock and Blues the way it's supposed to be done: true, gritty and raw!
