UP NORTH BLUES

Posted By on Wed, Mar 10, 1999 at 12:00 AM

Motor City Josh has earned a name around town as one of the most tasteful and talented young blues guitar players. His sound has always been far ahead of his years, giving evidence of someone who’s done some living, some paying attention, some paying dues and has learned how to put it all to music. Unlike so many younger players, Josh consistently resists the temptation to go blazing over the top, choosing instead to seek and find each and every right note for just the right occasion. On this, his second CD, Josh shows off not only his guitar-playing chops but his great voice and songwriting ability. It obviously didn’t hurt to have such a strong supporting cast to help him bring this project off with the best possible musicianship. A glance at the roster of musicians lists some of the city’s strongest players, from horns to keyboards to drums. This is top of the line.
