Biography

He seems to emerge from nowhere, like all great discoveries in life. His lyrical talent, as well as his personal yet extraordinary voice, are nevertheless undeniable.

Josh as an artist, has hidden in the dark for years, crafting and creating hundreds of songs which mount upon one another, yearning for a place in the music landscape.

In his first EP, ´The Passage upon Flowers and Volcanoes´, he allows us to glimpse into his inner universe, which twists in a much more complex manner than the frankness found in this small selection of songs would suggest. However, don´t be mistaken, this is nothing but the doorway to a devious framework, allowing us to encounter the outer layer, the simplest layer, the most appropriate one.

The EP

It is the first part of a twofold début whose sequel will be ´The onslaught of the Unicorn´. By measuring out the information given we intend to offer song-based efforts rather than full-length albums and supply the public with an array of works, chronologically displayed, because Josh´s musical evolution would not be understood otherwise.

Josh Prada

Having spent his life in both Spain and England, this native of Melilla feels as much an Englishman as a Spaniard.
He speaks both languages as naturally as he sings or writes songs, organic to his bilingual nature. With ´The passage upon Flowers and Volcanoes´ Josh will be taking the first step forward. With, ´The onslaught of the Unicorn´, he will root down solidly in the international market.

Lyrics

Except for me

Written By: Josh Prada

There is a hole I like to escape through every once and again,
I don't even know whether to get in this time around,
I've been awake quite a lot lately,
I can't catch my sleep no longer.

Granny told me to get on with work again last night,
it never goes down very well on me,
easily, easily, easily, take it easy, but take it eventually.

Where's my head at?
Where is the one you thought I'd be by now?
Did he get lost in the way?
Tell him if he got stray everyone wants him back
except for me.

Dream-hunters, head-stealers, and ever-shining outcasts,
put your hand up if you're one of us,
we won't parade for the fuckers,
we will not square up.
