Bio

Whether it be tweaking lyrics or crafting infectious melodies, Gold Coast based Josh King is busy creating his own brand of new-age pop. Mixing sparkling synths with ambient – almost floating – guitars, King has found a way to bring his diverse influences together in a way that only few can.

Brutal honesty is second nature to this young artist and writer, and with the topics of love, loss and everything in between on the table, King’s songs will have you dancing and crying at the same time.

2020 is going to be a big year for pop, as King releases some of the songs that mean the most to him.

“I try to write about things I’ve been through, so when you listen to my songs you get a glimpse into my world, and hopefully it’ll mirror your own enough that you can relate.”

Up front tenderness and heart on his sleeve style from Josh. It works for him too.
