Inspired by his mom & dad's love of music, joshua grew up with his older brother and two sisters writing, singing and playing instruments. Even before graduating from high school he had begun to pursue a career in music that has taken him across the country and afforded him the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Completely self-taught, joshua brings a uniquely vivid and emotional style to the piano that has earned him comparisons to many artists, including keith jarret, randy newman and dr. john. After becoming a father, joshua discovered a gift for writing and directing kid's musicals and songs, and has now accumulated a body of work that includes original solo piano, jazz, classical, social commentary and children's music. Evocative and emotional, his music has also found a home in film. Joshua is currently based out of the Washington, d.c. area and is committed to finding opportunities where he is able to share his passion and love for music, and his desire to bring positive energy to the world with as many people as possible.
