Still working on that hot first release.



It wasn’t until, at the age of 14, Joshua Watkinson discovered his true passion for the guitar when he adopted a rarely used, neglected acoustic from a closet at his grandparents’ house. As luck would have it, shortly after bringing the guitar home he was involved in a freak volleyball accident that left him with one hand in a cast and the other arm in a sling. However, he was already hooked and spent hours in his room, teaching himself how to play.
Josh spent his high school years in NH, continuing to refine his skills. Most evenings, if he wasn’t on the soccer pitch, he could be found in the basement, or garage working on new music. He dabbled in a wide range of genres, and was always looking for a new challenge.
When it was time to decide where to attend college and what career to pursue, the decision was an easy one. Music had to be at the center of his future. After spending his freshman year at the University of New Hampshire, Josh entered Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. At Berklee, he continued to hone his songwriting skills and truly became a great lyricist. His songs verge on the oxymoron, combining soulful, moving lyrics with upbeat tempos, evoking a wide range of emotions from the listener. He has the ability to put to music those fleeting thoughts that most people have, but never verbalize.
