"IDOL Magazine"

Maintaining a high-end fashion modeling career while fronting one of the most promising bands of the newer London punk generation is certainly not a piece of cake, yet Josh Beech seems to be doing more than just fine. Cooky and gorgeous the South East Londoner dreamed of becoming John Lennon since the age of six and today, after having taken his first steps towards becoming a rockstar with the band Snish in 2008, Josh might be closer to reaching his dream than ever. Having found his fellow “Beatles” in drummer John Turnham (former member of Snish), bassist John Martinelli (From Grace, Hello Mexico) and new adquisition - pianist Gulli Gunnarsson, Josh Beech and the Johns released their debut EP “She” earlier this year and are now getting ready for a steamy tour of Germany to take place in October 2011. IDOL met up with the band just just before a recent performance at the Sanderson Hotel in London - Idol Magazine

Josh's musical past comes from a world of Rock/Punk backgrounds, but in this new direction and project the music is more song based and less based around "amp fuelled" riffs - that said The Johns can certainly bring it home live, wowing fans globally as they grow. The boys gave this exclusive performances for the AllSaints Basement Sessions and GQ Create Britain collaboration. - GQ Magazine, All Saints

Bio

Josh Beech, is a singer/song-writer born and bread in South East London, a city that would eventually influence his attitude as well as his art.

His first big musical endeavor was as front man/singer with the rock/punk band Snish, a London crowd favourite who received many accolades in the music industry, including a review from Fly magazine, which called the band the "2008’s next big thing".

Levi's included Snish in their concert series "Ones To Watch," while Josh became the face of their prestigious 501 Jeans campaign internationally. That campaign marked the start of a new career move for the singer, who soon found himself in front of the cameras on a regular basis. But it was thanks to his prowess in front of the microphone, and the way it translated into his attitude, that both the music and fashion industries came calling.

Josh recorded "Burnt Out," his first four-track solo acoustic EP, in late summer of 2010, which had over to 2000 downloads during his first European tour in December throughout Italy, France, Germany and UK.
During the summer 2010, because of his background in rock music, Josh was selected as the face of the newest, Tommy Hilfiger fragrance, LOUD, alongside The Thing Things and Daisy Lowe.

Josh Beech then decided to make his touring band full time and blend them in the second project: Josh Beech & The Johns.
Band members are John Turnham (former member of Snish) on drums and John Martinelli (From Grace, Hello Mexico) on bass and mandolin.

They boys are currently promoting the second Ep "She" which was recorded in the space of a week thanks to Josh’s prolific vein and professional attitude and the help of a solid rhythm section supplied by the two Johns.

When asked by the media about the new release Josh said, "My sound isn't getting any heavier, it's just getting fuller. It's a progression, similar to what goes on in my live shows. I wanted these melodies to have legs”.

The trio has just returned from their successful U.S. tour which included gigs at the prestigious South By Southwest tradeshow in Texas as well as a “mini Marathon” of 9 gigs in 8 days around Austin, and gigs in Florida.
A stopover in Spain on the way back from the U.S. tour was done as an exclusive in store show for Pull& Bear, where 300 CD’s were incredibly snapped up and autographed by the boys in one single show.

With a worldwide fan base already solid and growing, Josh plans to tour North America, Japan as well as Europe throughout 2011 hoping to visit as many cities as possible along the way and release the long Awaited album due out in February 2012.
