Blues-rock guitarist, singer-songwriter from KL- Josh Thomas - will be performing live at Porkville PJ this Friday, 6 October 2023.
Josh Thomas is a blues-rock guitarist musician singer-songwriter from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He embraces a distinct sound inspired by Jimi Hendrix, The Black Keys, Jack White, and Gary Clark Jr. Expect originals and covers with a retro-alternative vibe, delivered through skillful guitar-work layered with warm, inviting vocals.
Josh grew up on a steady diet of rock'n'roll, country, and blues from his musical family. Taking to the keyboards at the tender age of 4 and picking up the guitar when he was 8, Josh established his love for music.
In his 20s, he played in several bands and crossed several genres, further expanding his musical vocabulary, performing at notable venues all over KL (Merdekarya/TheBee/RexKL) Penang (Soundmaker, Hin Depot) and Johor (Puteri Harbour), searching for a definitive sound and identity. He found the answer through his self-titled band, Josh Thomas, manifesting modern blues, rock, and soul that is current yet paying tribute to sounds of the 60s and 70s he grew up on. His calling is to keep the magic of raw and soulful guitar music alive in the airwaves and well into the future.
His track, Still Fallin' is his own variety of the baby-I’m-howlin'-for-you garage rock, and there's also Hollow. Both are out on all streaming platforms.
Catch Josh Thomas at Porkville this Friday and listen out for the release of his new single Waiting For Tomorrow. Tickets at the door will be at RM40. 8pm onwards.
