Well it’s a been a fun ride with SOI the last six months or so. First there was busking in the summer. Five of us spent a month tootling around France in an old blue Leyland Daf van, which was also our home much of the time. The busking went well and we sold out of our CDs, covered our costs and had a nice holiday. Then we went to Cyprus in September for a mini-tour with our now good friend Lefteris (check his music at http://www.myspace.com/jkristemasterofdisguise). We were treated wonderfully by audiences and our hosts alike and made some great connections. So much so that we were invited back to rock the joint on New Years Eve 2010 and do some more gigs, all of which was a great success. For more info, photos and videos go to the School Of Imagination myspace page.


My album has been receiving some encouraging feedback and a few nice reviews (more on that soon). Since finishing it, I’ve been delving more and more into the great treasure trove of traditional English music, an interest compounded by a summer school with Chris Wood last year. I’ve also begun writing some new material and am hoping to be back in the studio and back on stage before too long.

Well I’m wrapping up a few loose ends before sending the masters off to be printed. The album will be printed up in a limited run, as well as being made available online. It’s been what seems like a never-ending saga making this record, lots of false starts, alternative endings and deleted scenes. But now, at last, we seem to have a product of sorts emerging from the furnace. In the meantime, you’ll find some songs from the album on my myspace.

biography
Josh usually plays the guitar with his fingers, or more precisely the nails on his fingers. His songs are usually love songs, though that's not to say all are sung by a lover - some are about a friend, a place or a relative. He is inspired by the Dorset countryside he grew up in and the people and places of that time. He tries to make sense of the city and occasionally finds beauty there too.

I love your new one. I love both of these. Thank you for your message. I can't begin to tell you how there is something about your voice and guitar work just reaches inside of me. Queen Green, I sit misty eyed (feels somewhat amazed by this). Thank you so much, for your music :-)

Wonderful first song, welcome to t61! the link Calista posted has a whole lot of information put together by a very successful artist on this site, reading it would not be a bad idea.
If you have questions just ask you listeners, click on their names and you will be taken to their walls.
Enjoy and good luck!
