Biography

"Loop-based Improvisation"

Upon first listen, one might think the sounds that emanate from this lone guitarist must be coming from a prerecorded tape or CD. How could a soloist create such lush layers with just a guitar? Simple, just watch his feet. Equipped with two real-time loop pedals and his trusty guitar-synth, Joshua performs, then captures the song's rhythmic structure, which creates the foundation for his improvisational texturing. Orchestrating sounds from bass to Hammond B3 to vibraphones, it gives his audience the sense of a full ensemble; there's never a dull moment. Joshua has redefined the meaning of "soloist".
