Wintonian singer-songwriter Josh Savage returns to the Railway Inn on his European Tour for the release of his debut album ‘The Long Way Round’.
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 Music Industry landscape. “The most promising new young artist to emerge in Winchester in years” has built a loyal fanbase one living room at a time (he holds the record for the amount of Sofar Sounds gigs worldwide).
Josh grew up learning piano, trumpet and guitar at home and went on to complete his Music Degree at University of York. His heroes include Amber Run, Coldplay, Bon Iver, Ben Howard, Bombay Bicycle Club, Daughter, Foals and RY X.
