Following success in his native Australia, Josh Kroehn is bringing his new music to the rest of the world with his single ‘Never Found’. Josh’s previous single ‘Processed Life’ and subsequent EP ‘Something I’ve Found’ was a massive success in Australia seeing him debut in the Triple J Unearthed charts, peaking at number 7 and earning rave reviews from Triple J presenters and producers, not to mention glowing reviews in Happy Mag, Buzz Music and Glamglare.
Although growing up with a love for heavier music and idolising the likes of James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica, and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, Josh’s music is now more centered around a softer guitar sound. His startlingly honest lyrics and fragile delivery give an urgency and poignancy to his songs, whilst his unusual guitar tunings and fingerstyle technique, leaving listeners bewildered that he is playing solo.
Josh’s brand-new track is stunning, purely acoustic, and with lyrics that see him leaving behind a fabricated persona he had created to become the real Josh. It is the first glimpse of his debut album, to be released later this year, and sees an artist at the top of his game, ready to beguile music fans worldwide with his starkly honest confessionals.
Being influenced by the diversity in music as he was growing up, Josh now seeks to join the likes of Ben Howard and John Martyn as he releases his music for the whole world to enjoy this summer. Josh’s music delves into a world where his guitar playing creates textures that carry, conflict and challenge his vocal tones and colours in biographical confessionals. Josh’s music is written about life, and one thing that you can be assured of is that the music will always come straight from the heart and be uniquely authentic.
