“Outstanding” – Folk Radio UK ​ Winner of the Rising Star award in the Folk Awards.

 ​”… adding lashings of Peter Gabriel stylings to the world of trad arrangements.” – The Guardian
 ​In one phrase? Folk-fused baroque ‘n’ roll for the modern world.
 ​Born and bred in (well, he’s not sure where) Joshua learned at an early age that ‘home’ could be found in music, rather than a place. An upbringing on the move led to a cross-pollination of styles, stories and influences which Joshua distils into his own contemporary sound. As a self-professed album artwork addict, Joshua’s work delivers a dose of escapism and entertainment in equal measure, from the artwork through to the last note. 
 Having cut his teeth playing folk festivals throughout the UK and releasing his critically-acclaimed arrangements of traditional songs, Joshua now returns to his original songwriting roots in his brilliant acoustic trio. 
 With music ranging from stomping, acoustic sing-alongs, Bowie-esque music hall epics, and alt-pop singles – whilst keeping a sharp focus on the traditional themes – Joshua is fast carving out his own unique corner of the genre.
