Biography

Oregonian turned Bostonite turned Oregonian Josh English got his sealegs at the helm of the laudable pop trio Six Going On Seven. During their seven year existance, the band recorded three well-received full-length records, a handful of EPs and logged hundreds of shows with everyone from Superdrag to the Get Up Kids. The band dissolved in 2003 and Josh undertook the arduous task of trying to recreate the band dynamic that made Six Going on Seven a success but found this to be a fool's errand.

So these days, Josh is embarking on an odyssey of his own. Inspired by Raymond Carver novels and an oceans' worth of black coffee, his infectious melodies, velvety vocals and acerbic lyricism are proof positive that his years spent on the road listening to Elvis Costello, The Kinks, and fellow Oregonian Elliot Smith were not in vain.
