Biography

Josh Langston
Singer/Songwriter
Americana/Folk rock/Country

Josh Langston is a man of “This is who I Am” merit. With his in your face, take it or leave it attitude, he has been on a road of many twists and turns that fly through his music career without a doubt. His voice carries through a room like a tornado with a cause and if you ever have the chance to run him down and hear a show you will be left with no question of who he is, what he stands for, and a hum that will run through your soul like never before, finding yourself with an addiction to the sound wailing from his mic.

Through tough times he has prevailed landing on the Roots Music Report Chart for 43 consecutive weeks, standing 35 weeks in the top 10 with his “Ashes From Embers” album. He co-wrote “Pass me that Bottle” which reached #11 on the Texas Music Chart. Also his song “Take Me Back Home” reached #33 on the same chart. He has been #1 on many request charts such as Radio Free Texas, and his song “Just Cause” can not be extinguished on The Outlaw 92.5 in San Antonio, TX with its fiery comeback in which listeners can’t get enough of. He is on is way to carving his path singing along side of many artist both old school and on the rise, such as Ryan Bingham, Stoney Larue, Billy Joe Shaver, The Great Divide, Wayne Mills, Jason Bolland, Hayes Carll, Charlie Robinson, Lee Brice, and Jamey Johnson. Thus the foundation is set for his musical voyage.

Often being called the Steve Earle of his time; his outlaw tune is not your typical commercial jingle lingering from Nashville. Although he has lived most of his life in Texas, it began in California, moving from state to state with his family as a child eventually finding his way back to Texas time and time again. Raised in a military household; often rejecting too much discipline unfortunately landed him some trouble as a young teen. His stubbornness and independence has taken him to extensive songwriting capabilities today. His well traveled adventures crafted him into the man he is and it appears in his music continuously. He writes about what’s in the heart sometimes good, and other times what we don’t want to admit out loud. His lyrics explode with feelings to tender for most to vocalize. He projects a sense of determination others envy. With the view of “Drive On, forever push forward, do not reflect on moments lost or opportunities passed.” . “Langston’s lyrics wander from “Enough about me girl, how you been?” to “whiskey, weed, and cocaine” as he explains “Everything around me tastes like sin.” His sound is pure outlaw, channeling the revolution that Luckenbach begat” said by author Cody Oxley of the 11th Hour Magazine. And that’s who he is. Often referred to as the new bandit where ever he plants his guitar and bag, he can be found on the couch of many friends and family members trying to make his way through this musical lifestyle that he continues to press on and has been known to wear the soles off his boots.

Working in the oil fields of south Texas gets lonely, and Langston decided to pick up a guitar during time off and nothing has been the same since. His music stands for the everyday working man, lonely hearts, and the whisky drinking part of everyone, that loves music. He has a heart of gold, determined to be heard. Better told by Cara Miller owner of Radio Free Texas "Josh Langston has a way of painting a picture with lyrics. Word crafting at it's finest coupled with his unique vocals...” His razor sharp edge sets him aside from anything your ears can tune into on the radio. With this it’s hard to place him into a distinct musical category. He has Americana sound with a Folk Rock/Country twist JOSH LANGSTON, live it and turn it UP!
