"Artist of the Week" - UBL

"Vintage Guitar CD Review"

"Preston placed himself in the arc of usually British guitar troubadours that has people like Ralph McTell and Roy Harper on the folky end, Richard Thompson on the rockier one, and John Martyn, Nick Drake, and Preston himself somewhere in the middle." - Vintage Guitar Magazine (Oct 08)

"Southeast Performer Magazine CD Review"

"His lyrics and compositions come across as mature, espousing truths hard-learned from experience." - Southeast Performer Magazine

" CD Review"

"Exit Sounds is a quiet and moody affair... led by his strummed and finger-picked acoustic guitar and it all supports Preston¹s slightly gruff tenor." -

" CD Review"

"Mr. Preston's songs sound like an odd cross between a more accessible Sufjan Stevens and a soft folkie version of Bob Pollard (Guided By Voices)." -

"CD Review from The Netherlands"

"Josh Preston schrijft poëtische liedjes die hij ingetogen zingt, met fijnzinnige arrangementen."

(Translation: "Josh Preston writes poetic songs he sings subdued, with sophisticated arrangements.") - Moors Magazine - The Netherlands

"Metro Spirit CD Review"

"Built upon a solemn vocal tone and an intricate arrangement of sound, Josh Preston’s third full-length recording Exit Sounds is a breathy whisper of turmoil along a wasted waterfront of the heart." - Metro Spirit (Augusta, GA)



Over the past few years, you could find Josh Preston playing with a number of bands (The Mables, Daphne & The Mystery Machines, Adam Burrows, Tumbleweed Company) around Nashville on any given night of the week. 

It was this submersion in Music City’s stylistic stew of rock, pop, funk, blues and Americana that transformed his guitar playing and personalized his approach to songwriting. 

The experiences and observations gathered during this time have embedded themselves on his new, self-titled release. 

Backed by musicians with a deep connection to the musical roots of rock and soul, these well-crafted songs dance from heartfelt to humorous and shine a spotlight on who he's become as an artist.

Josh Preston's self-titled release is an honest reflection on both his social status and the status quo.
