Joshua Engel - Swimming to Catch the Sun



Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joshua Skye Engel has been making music since the age of three. His first break came at age 11, singing back-up for John Sebastian at the 1986 Genie Awards. Studying at McGill University in Montreal provided him the opportunity to perform his original music and collaborate on his first recordings. There, he worked with Grammy winning producer George Massenburg. Completing his degree, Joshua returned to Toronto and became a founding member of post-modern klezmer pioneers Beyond the Pale. A six time scholarship recipient from KlezKanada, Joshua participated in workshops with many luminaries of the genre.
Later Joshua became Musical Director of Starshine Productions, a theatre company dedicated to producing thought provoking, original entertainment for children and enjoyed successful international runs. Joshua completed Orff training at the Royal Conservatory and is currently a musician and educator with Rainbow Songs, running interactive musical programs for children. He has been teaching music privately to students in Toronto for over fifteen years.
Joshua has produced full length albums, commercials, film soundtracks and musical theatre.
An avid traveller, Joshua has performed live in over fifteen different countries on five continents. Joshua received a 2009 songwriting grant from the OAC.
