Josh Rosenblum Band is a pop/rock band based in California's Central Coast whose sound touches on the sensibilities of country, funk, R&B, and jazz. Founded in 2008, The band is a collective of various musicians fronted by singer/songwriter/guitarist Josh Rosenblum. Over the years the band has received several local accolades (including 3 MAMA awards), released 6 studio albums, and tours California on a regular basis.
The band's modern, high energy vibe is affectionately cradled by their old-soul like musicianship, vocals, and writing style, fusing the generational gaps in today's music world into a streamlined array of infectious grooves and relatable lyrics. Josh writes all of the words and music for the project, while his fellow members contribute their artistic visions for the additional parts. The songs are written from past experience, the hypothetical, day-to-day struggles and thoughts, as well as just good old-fashioned story telling.
"We believe in allowing every performance to be as musically spontaneous as possible while keeping the original foundation of each song alive, but most importantly, we're just a bunch of musicians that love to jam!"
Josh Rosenblum was born December 17th, 1990 in Modesto, CA. He grew up in a musically saturated, jazz-oriented family with his grandfather, father, and 3 siblings all playing professional trumpet, as well as other instruments. He began taking an interest in the trumpet at age 4, and later started taking classes through Modesto City Schools’ music program in the 5th grade. In 8th grade, Josh received a music scholarship for a jazz camp in Lafayette, CA where he would realize his undying passion for music. He was taught several elements of music theory and given the chance to practice his improvising with combos that had sprung up within the camp. Josh attended Thomas Downey High School and participated on trumpet in every ensemble available including marching, jazz, and concert band. For Josh’s 15th birthday, he received an acoustic guitar and immediately began teaching himself to play. Josh started writing music during the Spring of 2007, and began uploading crude recordings to a Myspace music page. In Summer 2008, he started booking his own shows and trying to create his own musical brand as an artist. Throughout high school and his brief time at a Junior college, Josh also worked freelance as a sit-in musician on trumpet, guitar, vocals, drums, and bass for various local acts, which helped him to discover what kind of a performer he wanted to be and contributed to refining his versatility in different genres. Many years, shows, album releases later, Josh continues to train himself and test his abilities as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, always eager to expand his self-taught knowledge of music theory and taking the time to apply it and experiment with it in various live settings.
