Biography

Firescape, the side-project of Something Corporate guitarist and songwriter Josh Partington, edges away from the self-wrought convention of “piano rock” towards the more raw, harder edge of his own songwriting. With echoes of the melodic rock sub-genre that defined Josh’s previous work, Firescape rings with the heavier, richer sound of a musician in touch with the personal aspects of his music; thought and memory and a devotion to influence.

The songs are a combination of the fluid styles that defined Jimmy Eat World or Weezer and the heavier guitar elements of bands like Queens of the Stone Age or Foo Fighters. There is a haunting energy, a drive that is fueled by both lyrical depth and choruses that have an unshakeable confidence and warmth. There is an undertow that is both melancholy and hopeful, an exposition of both the histories of the songwriter and the more universal subjects of the songs.

All of these factors carry over into the live performance, making Firescape an energetic show that should not be missed. To compliment an electric stage presence, Firescape shows their softer side by frequently touring acoustically, revealing the emotional storytelling nature of the songs from their last two releases.
