“Fantastic song writing and a resonant, rich voice, Josh exhibits real skill as a musician and singer.” – Huffington Post ‘Ten Artists to Watch’
“Absolutely stunning!” – BBC Introducing
With no management, publishing or record support to speak of, singer/songwriter Josh Savage has blazed a bright trail through the music industry, which should serve as a beacon to any musician looking to make a name for themselves in the unrecognisable 21st Century landscape. “The most promising new young artist to emerge in Winchester in years” has built a loyal fanbase one living room at a time.
His sprawling career has seen him supporting acts as diverse as Razorlight, Rizzle Kicks, Reverend and the Makers, Roll Deep, and even some acts with names that don’t begin with ‘R’ such as Benjamin Francis Leftwich, John Hiatt, Catfish & The Bottlemen & Ward Thomas.
With a passion for creating something new, where music knows no cultural or language boundaries, Josh fuses his cross cultural roots, inspired by the rich melting pot that was his childhood. During a music degree at the University of York, Josh and his band Taming The Savage were named by York Vision as “Best band on campus”. He featured regularly on BBC Introducing and was a trumpeter for Soultana.
BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson praised the lead track of Josh’s French EP; “‘Quatre Épines’ est déjà formidable… Loving ‘Quatre Épines’” and Social Assassin said “To have produced a work of this quality under any circumstances would be justification for him to feel proud; to have done so as the result of a self-released work without the support of a record label is nothing short of outstanding. Josh Savage is going to become a household name; if he doesn’t, I will willingly eat my laptop”.
Josh Savage has self-released two singles, ‘Bella’ & ‘Whisper In The Snow’ and three EPs; ‘Mountains in Hurricanes’, ‘Spaces’ and ‘Quatre Épines’ which have been played regularly on BBC Introducing and BBC 6 music and accumulated over 1.5 million plays on Spotify. ‘Spaces’ EP hit #28 and ‘Whisper In The Snow’ made the top 20 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. ‘Whisper In The Snow’ was also aired on Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 show.
