Bio

Josh Buskirk started playing guitar at 12, and has been playing for audiences for almost a decade, he is now 27. Growing up in Coolville, Ohio there were not many role models in his genre, but thankfully the records of the greats were readily available. After years of playing live shows Josh has developed a style of fingerstyle guitar that is just as at home on a 1920's Delmore Brothers blues to Jim Reeves' country to the Velvet Underground's rock n' roll. But more than all of that Josh is known for his virtuosic mastery of the twelve-string guitar, playing original compositions that are as stunningly technical as they are fun to tap your foot with. His voice has been likened to such disparate talents as Lou Reed and Willie Nelson. A badge he proudly wears.

The 11 original tracks highlight his love of twangy guitars with a distinct melody that has the power of getting stuck in one’s head. Buskirk has exceptional talent, not only in the art of playing guitar but also in writing."
--Jolene Craig, Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Alright, I just went and saw Josh tonight...and I must say he kicked butt! He has a style all his own...You will not find another acoustic player that plays the way he does! Check him out when you can!

This CD offers 11 tracks by an Ohio Valley guitar virtuoso, delivered with outstanding technique. His style is reminiscent of Steve James and Jack Jezzro. This is a fine collection that showcases an up and coming talent. ...,we caught up with a great blues guitarists Josh Buskirk. This kid’s got all the tools.

I've never been much for purely instrumental musicians, but seeing Josh Buskirk at the Barking Spider this night was a real treat... One of the great surprises you get when you just show up. His amazing guitar playing really played upon my love of Leo Kottke,... He did sing on one, and he ended up having an enjoyable sense of humor. Check him out.
