About Me

 

From an early age Joshua David had a heart for God and a love for music. From banging on his uncle's drum set as a toddler, singing in church plays and getting his first guitar when he was 4 and dressing up like a cowboy, singing George Strait songs for the family, Joshua has always been drawn to music. Growing up east of Cincinnati, Ohio with three brothers, he wasn't raised in a music family. And through his childhood and early teenage years his passion for music laid dormant. It wasn't until he was 15 when that love for music would be brought outĀ again. Having learned how to play drums from playing Guitar Hero he was invited to join his friends' band in high school. The art of songwriting and composing music fascinated him, and his desire to create music fostered a passion for recording, mixing and producing.

After some family trials and being out of church for several years, Joshua and his family started attending Williams Corner Church of God in 2011. Then 17, Joshua was given the opportunity to play drums for the youth band and jumped on the opportunity. "I initially started playing in church just because it was a chance to play in front of people, I had a big fear of playing in front of people and it was a way that I could face and overcome that fear. Little did I know that I would soon fall in love with God and want to make music ministry my vocation," said Joshua.

Joshua currently serves as worship leader at the same church and gets to do what he feels called to do. Also an artist, singer-songwriter and multi-talented musician Joshua's mission is to use his passion for music and songwriting to impact lives and encourage others to live the lives God has called them to live. "Its such a humbling and amazing feeling anytime someone says to you, 'I really love your music,' or, 'your song really blessed me.' Music is so powerful and it resonates with people in such a deep and intimate way. Where preaching and teaching may sometimes be ignored, a song can get the message into a hardened heart."

Joshua's influences include Christian/worship, modern and classic country and classic rock. Joshua graduated from the University of Cincinnati - Blue Ash College in 2014 where he majored in Electronic Media. A year later he co-wrote, recorded and produced his first EP titled "Hillstation."

One of Joshua's favorite scriptures is 1 Peter 4:10, it says "As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace." "I want to always use the gifts and talents God has given me to give Him the glory and serve His kingdom. My desire is to encourage others to do the same through my music, my ministry and the life that I live," says Joshua.
