Joshua L. Schmidt
Growing up in Detroit, Joshua was heavily inspired by Classic Rock (Zeppelin, Tom Petty), 90's Rock (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains), and Modern Rock bands such as Rival Sons and The Kooks. Add in powerful soul filled vocals and you have a unique American Rock sound that feels familiar.
Strongly affected by his wife's passage to cancer in 2009, Joshua looked to song writing as an outlet for his emotions. The first collection of songs he wrote were released on a solo album titled 'THE ROAD'. The highlights include 'Get Down Get Low', 'Heavy', '11:11', and 'I Miss You'. 'The Road' was released April 15th, 2014.
Joshua released his second album Sept 22nd, 2016 entitled Cymatics. The album includes the single 'Center of It All', which was nominated for a Grammy award for 'Best Vocal Performance' - Country Song, and 'I Find You' - Winner of the Akademia Award for 'Best Country Song' - November 2015. Also included are fan favorites 'Seal My Fate', 'Slowly Fade', and 'Noble Man'. Check out the new album on iTunes & Spotify!!
