I've seen Josh & his Band play live and his energy is unparalleled. It's what inspired me to buy his music. Josh has a really cool phenomenon happening. His up-beat stuff is infectious and sexy live and the slower tunes are heartfelt and profound while listening alone in my room. Check out 'Piece of me'...my favorite!
