...is a native of the Adirondacks in Upstate New York, and a pianist/keyboardist of eclectic background. Beginning with seventeen years of formal classical training, his career has taken many paths. After studying piano performance and musicology at the prestigious Eastman School of Music he moved to Ohio where he spent several years collaborating with various artists in the gospel music industry. This led to nation-wide tours and experience as musical director.
Through-out the past eight years he has ventured into world music forms and spent a lot of his spare time studying the relationship between musical cultures and how they differ or compare. With a fascination for the cognitive process of music creation and aural perception, Josh began studying Music Synthesis at Berklee College of Music. It was here that he met the now members of Project K-Paz and began broadening his abilities to other musical languages.
Josh has an affinity for abstract music and improvisation. In 2001 he performed a solo concert of spontaneous music for a sold-out crowd in Rochester, NY as a self-termed "social experiment" and was surprised with the resulting one-hundred and forty minutes of compositional material that ensued. "I've always been fascinated by the mind's ability to create something from nothing". Josh currently resides in Boston, MA where he is a session player and active performer.
