His eclectic influences range from Einaudi, Chopin and Jarrett to BartÃ³k, Glass and FaurÃ©, and the breadth of his instinctive musical literacy is staggering. This is a young man with an promising future ahead.
Josh has just started performing his compositions in the UK and almost immediately sold out of the first few hundred copies of his debut album 'Sunrise'.
Josh says: "This album was written at a particularly difficult point in my life - the time leading to my father's death - and it became a way of expressing myself.
If I had to sum up Sunrise in one phrase, it would be in the form of this metaphor, which was offered to me as a comfort during this difficult period, but later became a well of inspiration for me to draw upon: "Think of a sunrise. That sunrise will come only once and when it sets it's gone forever. But the next one will be just as beautiful, if not more so.
"Some of the pieces on this album are dark and introspective mirroring what the tragic situation which was taking place, but in general it is an album about hope and about finding calm in the chaos of life."
Josh is currently in the process of writing his third album, and his second album, 'The Creation' will be recorded and released later this year. In the meantime, he is performing around Europe and England, and - most noteably - is performing tracks from both Sunrise and The Creation at the prestigious Ravello Festival, Italy.
Whether you want music to relax to or a CD to really get your teeth into, Sunrise has something for everybody and has recieved nothing but excellent feedback.
