Grab Bag Of Gritty Soul; Truth-Talking Troubadour For Troubled Times
Sounds like Tom Waits and The Wood Brothers wrapped in a tortilla, dipped in honey and served at the speakeasy – a feast of gritty soul that ranges from smoky blues to melancholy ballads to rowdy swing. Oscar’s fat bass notes resonate with Joshua’s gravelly vocals as he recounts tales of the road, drunken sailors, emancipation, love, death, promises and destiny. Joshua has composed and performed for theatre including several stints as musical director at NYC’s LaMama ETC. He creates soundtracks for The Nature Conservancy. His song “Eye of the Storm” won 2008 West Coast Songwriters Song of the Year.
