A resident of New York since 2017, Josh has already established himself as a sought-after guitarist in the city’s diverse jazz scene. Josh can be seen as a steady presence in many of the city's most prominent bands, including Dandy Wellington and His Band, Cait and the Critters, Hot Club of Flatbush, Brooklyn Caravan and the Bailsmen. He regularly performs throughout the city at some of New York’s preeminent venues and events.
In 2014, Josh was honored to receive an Australian Fulbright Scholarship to fund his Masters in Jazz Studies at Williams Paterson University; during this time he had the honor of studying with renowned musicians such as Bill Charlap, Gene Bertoncini, Julian Lage, Matt Munisteri, and Armen Donelian. He was given the opportunity to learn beyond his classes by performing at various venues in New Jersey and New York, including Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola (alongside Bill Charlap) and Jazz at Lincoln Center (with Dan Levinson).
Growing up in Tasmania, Austrialia, Josh graduated from the University of Tasmania with First Class Honors in 2012; since then, he has had a varied performance and teaching career spanning both Tasmania and New York. He was the recipient of the 2013 ArtStart grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, and received funding from Arts Tasmania to supporting his burgeoning artistic career.
Josh currently resides in New York City, working alongside a variety of different bands. He is in the production stage of an album slated for release in mid-2019. He most recently wrapped up a Winter Australian tour alongside longtime mentor and musical peer, Danny Healy.
