Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, Josh came to NYC to study music and is classically trained on the guitar under Frederic Hand.
As a child, his first instrument was the piano (and the ukulele of course!), then the guitar, and over the years he's become an adept player on several instruments, including the ukulele, mandolin and accordion.
In addition to his performing, arranging and recording career, Josh is also a very effective teacher, and has had students successfully enter conservatories such as the classical guitar program at the Mannes School of Music in NYC.
His debut studio recorded album is devoted to dreamy Hawaiian music as an homage to his Island hometown, and can be sampled on CDBaby..
