Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Joshua has had the gumbo from an early age. After moving to the Bay Area in 1999, everything changed. Starting as a drummer, Josh picked up at the bass at 14 and never looked back. Watching his father play night after night sparked a fire in him that still burns to this day! Joshua wears many different hats in the industry, but his love is BASS! Joshua has a constant schedule of sessions, gigs, and is also a Producer and Engineer as well! His playing has a heavy groove with some serious pocket! His bass chops on OG Cuicide’s latest project “OG’s Are Forever” top notch and he stays locked in! Be sure to keep up with him on Youtube and other outlets!
