Joshua Sinclair provides the musical score to the stories of his life with songs that'll make you laugh, sing along, and raise a cold one in the air.
Growing up in Des Moines, Iowa, Josh picked up the guitar at the age of 10 and took lessons for a few years. He was in and out of bands throughout high school and into college when he and his brother, Nicholas, teamed up to form the pop/rock duo, Little Mojo. It was during that time that this White Stripes-meets-Hanson duo forged their own identity, started writing and releasing original albums, and booking national tours, all on their own. This eventually led to 3 different record deals over a 6 year time span with Mutiny 2K Records NYC, PlayTyme Entertainment, and Dreammakers Music. They spent countless months in various New York City studios, releasing 2 EP’s and a live album as well as a full-length record that got shelved, but even that didn’t deter the drive that Josh had to keep moving forward.
After an unfortunate accident at a friend's bachelor party in 2015 which resulted in a broken knee; Josh's whole trajectory changed. Faced with not being able to walk for months, he took it as an opportunity to learn a new skill, live looping. Live looping is the recording & playback of a piece of music in real-time using a small foot pedal to capture and record song phrases on-the-fly. This became the backbone of his live show...using just a guitar, a microphone, and a loop pedal, he creates exciting & dynamic performances, a la "Keith Urban meets Ed Sheeran."
Sinclair also was the catalyst in starting up a music therapy program at a local hospital in 2018. Much like the national program, “Musicians On Call,” he wanted to bring that same kind of experience to patients to help make their hospital stay a little bit easier. The program has since expanded over the past 4 years to include other local musicians and offer more opportunities to help those in need.
Experience an artist whose style is comparable to Jake Owen, Billy Strings, Dashboard Confessional, Ed Sheeran, Thompson Square, The Cadillac 3, etc.
