Josh Rosenblum is an artist based on California's Central Coast whose sound touches on the sensibilities of southern rock, pop, country, funk, R&B, and jazz. Forming his band in 2008, he works with a collective of various musicians, releasing 6 studio albums (getting ready to release his 7th), and tours the West on a regular basis.
Josh's modern, high energy vibe works perfectly along his 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 his words and music, taking inspiration from past experience, the hypothetical, day-to-day struggles and 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 grew up in a musically saturated, jazz-oriented family In Modesto, CA. With his grandfather, father, and 3 siblings all playing professional trumpet, he began taking an interest in the trumpet at age 4, and later started taking music classes in middle school. In the 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 improvising with combos that had sprung up within the camp.
During high school, Josh participated on trumpet in every ensemble available including marching, jazz, and concert band. For his 15th birthday, he received an acoustic guitar and immediately began teaching himself to play. He soon started writing music and uploading crude recordings to Myspace, followed by booking his own shows and creating his brand as an artist.
Throughout high school and college, Josh 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 and test his abilities as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, always eager to expand his self-taught knowledge of music theory. His full-time live music career allows him to experiment and apply his continuous education.
