Josh sounds good all on his own, or with 10 band-members behind him. He's an improviser, composer, a soloist and a singer/songwriter all in one.

Biography

Josh Klein is a born improviser, with a knack for composition. Formerly founder of musician's collective, Josh Klein & Friends, he has now made a turn towards making more fulfilling music.

In the time with JK&F, Josh and the friends he brought along the way spontaneously composed about 3 discs worth of recorded material, and provided live entertainment many nights in small clubs around Boston.

Now however, Josh spends his set time playing rehearsed, lyrical compositions, many of which are songs written with his rock group, StickBottle.

Josh loves rocking out with his friends from the collective, and can also lay it back for a more intimate environment. Perfect for your sports bar, or for your small cocktail party.

Lyrics

CrazyTown

Written By: Josh Klein

She is so punk rock with those long brown locks,
You can't deny that she's got style.
With some band's t-shirt and a smile that hurts,
Cuz when she flashes it she turns into a child.

Its so hard to sing these words out loud,
But I know I need to get them out somehow,

Even if I don't like Anti-Flag,
It makes me insane when you twirl like that
I can't help it, when you're looking at me, you take me to crazytown.

Can we take a trip to a distant place?
When we get there we'll disappear.
We could quit our jobs, we could change our names,
So if anyone comes, they'll never interfere.

I don't want no interruptions
While I follow your instructions.

Even if I don't like......

We can take this place,
We can make it safe,
And we can call it crazytown.
I gave you everything for a ride to crazytown.

Even if I don't like.......
